Round & Round with CFWheels.

Recently I have had the chance to recreate a site I had into the ColdFusion On Wheels Framework to make development faster. I am overall very impressed with how the framework works, but I have had a few issues with the newest version 1.1.6 and this is a list of how I worked around them.

First off, Database Structure; I had issues with underscores in my table names and also with the jTDS vendor MSSQL driver. Sadly this was only worked around by renaming everything in my DB and changing to the Microsoft Vendor Driver.

Second, partials don’t have controller functions with them; after some digging I came across this improvement which did exactly what I wanted it to, have a function in a controller that a partial would load it’s data from. (

Lastly there is a strange bug with the newer browsers that when they send a request that expects a json response CFWheels doesn’t detect the desired response value, the way to fix that is documented here: (

Everything else I have figured out I will post at a later date.
