I'm having a lot of trouble using cfftp on CF8. Identical
code works fine on CF7.
When I invoke the following function from a Model-Glue event
: I get different behaviour in CF7 and CF8. In CF8 after the first
request when I dump the connection I get a struct with the
connection details and everything works fine. However, on the 2nd
request, the connection is empty string meaning the open command
didn't work. After much looking I found an object in the Variables
scope called MFTPINTERFACE which is of type
coldfusion.tagext.net.FtpHandler, containing all the ftp type
functions (changeDir(), getCurrentDir(), openConnection(),
closeConnection() etc.). I've found that if I delete this object
from Variables the connection opens fine as on the first request.
Presumably it is some sort of connection cacheing which misfires in
CF8. Just to clarify, this object isn't there in CF7 when executing
the same requests.
Has anyone any idea what this object is and how I should go
about resolving this?
