Unofficial Workaround for CFMX Crashes When Indexing PDF documents on Solaris.

If you've ever been interested in checking out the Verity tool "mkvdk" or if you are currently experiencing JVM crashes when indexing PDF files on Solaris with CFMX 6.0 or 6.1, then you may want to have a look at a custom tag cf_mkvdkcreated as replacement for using CFINDEX.

In the ColdFusion documentation the mkvdk utility is described, briefly, as:

"The mkvdk utility is an indexing application, provided with other Verity utilities, that you can use to create and maintain collections. It is a command-line utility that you can use within other applications or shell scripts to provide more sophisticated scheduling and other capabilities."
