Macromedia ColdFusion MX 6.1 and MX 7 allowed a file specification in the destination field forcffile action="upload". The MX 6.1 documentation forcffile mentioned this explicitly with an example and although the MX 7 documentation removed the example, the behavior remained.
With ColdFusion MX 7.0.1, a directory is created with the same name as the file specification name in thedestination field, rather than uploading the file, as in the past.
Note: Code that specifies a directory in thedestination field for cffile action="upload" will not have this problem.
To restore the old behavior, Macromedia has created a hot fix for cffile action="upload" when there is a file specification in the destination field.
Both ColdFusion MX 7 cumulative and individual hot fixes are installed in the ColdFusion MX Administrator. The installation process is the same for all platforms and installation choices.
The ColdFusion MX 7 hot fix JAR file does not need to be retained after installing it with the ColdFusion Administrator. The file has been copied into the correct location.
The ColdFusion MX 7 hot fix JAR file will appear as a new entry in the System Information list.
