How can I access a public static member of a Java class from ColdFusion?

How can I access a public static member of a Java class from ColdFusion?

Answer 1

You run the createObject but don't call the "init" before running the static method. For example:

<cfset systemObject = createObject("java", "java.lang.System") />

In this case "currentTimeMillis()" is a static method of the System class.

Answer 2

I would also mention that the class has to be in CF's classpath.

Sorry if that sounds kludgy, but I can't think of any other solutions.

Best Way to Determine if *.doc File is RTF with Java or ColdFusion

So I have about 4,000 word docs that I'm attempting to extract the text from and insert into a db table. This works swimmingly until the processor encounters a document with the *.doc file extension but determines the file is actually an RTF. Now I know POI doesn't support RTFs which is fine, but I do need a way to determine if a *.doc file is actually an RTF so that I can choose to ignore the f...

java - Upgrading the JRE used by ColdFusion

I have a ColdFusion 8.1 application. It gets heavy use and I see jrun.exe getting very high memory usage in the task manager. This is a 32-bit windows 2003 server.
