If you're using the [awesome] Coldbox framework from Luis Majano, you might have run into this error more than once, but can never remember why it happens, even though you've solved it forty million times already.
Application Execution Exception
Error Type: java.io.IOException : [N/A]
Error Messages: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect
Template: C:\[your root]\html\coldbox\system\plugins\renderer.cfc
Well, here's what it is, so you can quit banging your head. You've set the view in your handler, but you included the .cfm at the end, like thus:
<cfset Event.setView("tester/testDumper.cfm") />
Since I've already hit this error many times, and cannot seem to learn from my mistakes, I'm hoping like crazy that actually blogging about it might help me remember for next time!
