I am just starting to get into using CFThread. I have a process I am working on to allow clients to order background reports on multiple applicants simultaneously. I am doing this using CFThread. Through some trial and error I discovered that I needed to var scope the variables that are used in the CFC's that do the bulk of the report processing. As soon as I did that I started getting the error " Branch target offset too large for short". Everything I have read on this error basically says I have too much code in the CFC which doesn't make sense as I am using this CFC in several other places in the site without error. The problem only occured after var scoping my variables in the CFC and them sticking that CFC inside a CFTHread tag.
Has only one seen anything like this before?
Haven't seen it, no.
Can you revert to your un-VARed code, and then re-VAR the variables one by one, retesting between each, and see if a specific one gives you the error?
I don't know what this might tell you, but it might help focus where to look.
NB: you should be VARing your variables within functions as a matter of course, not simply in situations in which the code is being called via <cfthread>.
Difficult to say without seeing the code. Did you set the attribute output="false" for cfcomponent and cffunction? Could we see the code?
