I’ve discovered a thing to be cautious of when developing using Coldfusion MX (it appears to be no longer an issue in CFMX 7):
When creating form fields, don’t make the field’s name end in ‘_required’. Doing so triggers some sort of automatic Cold Fusion validation processing. You’re quite likely to see an error like: “Form entries incomplete or invalid.”
So to prevent any futher hair-pulling on anyone’s part, I’m recording this fact here for posterity.
