(I’m following the process for reporting bugs and posting here first.) Essentially, static methods are failing when called from an abstract class. Lucee is attempting to instantiate an object, which of course is not what should happen when a static method is called. Static methods are working just fine when called from a non-abstract class. This is for 22.214.171.124 / Commandbox. I’ve not seen this reported in the Lucee issue tracker. (The same behavior exists in ACF for which I’ve submitted a ticket.)
Thanks for alerting us to the bug and filing the report.
Could you please add to the Ticket a simple test case that shows the bug / defect?
Perhaps you could just copy/paste your code directly that isn’t working - if it is simple / clear?
