I found an interesting little bug in the BlogCFC implementation of ColdFISH today. ColdFISH is a ColdFusion code formatting component that is instantiated once and cached as a singleton in the application scope in BlogCFC. The problem is, ColdFISH looks like it wasn't intended to be used as a singleton. It makes use of the variables scope to store the Java StringBuffer class it uses to gather up your formatted code as well as a number of other variables used to parse the code it is formatting. This means when two or more people hit a BlogCFC entry with larger code samples, race conditions exists.I see three ways around this:
  1. ColdFISH gets re-factored to use only locally varred variables to format code.
  2. BlogCFC creates a NEW instance of the ColdFISH component for every request.
  3. BlogCFC forces all code formatting to be single-threaded by useing named locks around all calls to ColdFISH.
Personally, I like option 1, but I don't know what Jason's intent was for ColdFish. His documentation doesn't seem to address instantiation and persistence of the component. I have filed bug reports with both riaforge projects so hopefully one or the other will add a fix into their next version. For your perverse viewing pleasure, I have included a rather large block of code from the ColdBox framework below. Refresh this page a few times very quickly and scroll through the code paying close attention the line numbers (which will probably be very much out of order). There's also a good chance anyone else hitting an entirely different entry on my site at the same time as you is probably getting a really jacked up code sample to. :)
