Is Java supported in CFMX?

Samuel Neff elaborated his opinion regarding what is or is not "supported" with regard to extending ColdFusion MX with Java.

His conclusions are sensible, and I agree with them. I would only add Java is supported (as in you want to open a ticket with Technical Support) to the extent that you are accessing Java through the documented mechanisms (cfobject, createobject, etc...), that the intended classes are in ColdFusion's classpath (explicity or implicitly), that the object can be instantiated, and that the object can receive and return parameters as needed.

If there is a problem in any of those areas, Technical Support can investigate them to develop solutions, workarounds, or hotfixes depending on the exact nature of the problem.
