For those of you that continue to experience hangs and massive slowdowns running CFB on Windows 7 64bit, the one thing I found that made all the difference in the world is to have Eclipse use the jvm.dll rather than javaw.exe (the default). I’m using the CFB plugin into Eclipse, but I suspect this may also apply to CFB standalone on Win7 64bit as well.
This update allows DBX to display included columns when enumerating indexes for tables. Based off the sp_helpindex2 stored procedure from http://www.sqlskills.com.
Download from dbx.riaforge.org.
A bug fix and a minor change:
- fixed miscalculation of total in database/table info pane
- changed sort in extended properties tab for 2005/2008 tables/views to match the ordinal position of the column
Minor fix in this version:
- added handling for stored html content display in data sample tab

In certain instances where you have endlessly running/sleeping
'monitoring' threads, there is effectively no way to kill them short of
a CF server cycle or via the CF8 server monitor.
I had this issue during development where inside an app scoped component I was creating two 'monitor' threads, which were charged with monitoring two separate queues, sleeping every few seconds. Whenever the app scope was reinitialized, two more threads would be created, up to the point where all threads were utilized and the app bombed due to the lingering (and idle) threads left from the previous instantiation.
CFThreads are not application specific, they are bound to the server; furthermore, multiple threads with the same name can be created in different requests. In order to attempt to 'bind' a thread to a given application, I recommend prefixing all threads with an application-specific unique string prefix; this will allow you to use the prefix argument of the UDF below and effectively kill only those threads which were spawned from a particular application.
Given all this, I created the following UDF which allows you to kill any cfthread, either by name or by prefix string.
