Time is your most valuable resource, and Adobe® ColdFusion® Builder™ 2 software gets you to deployment faster with a host of timesaving features. Quickly search and navigate code and automate many coding tasks.
Quickly navigate to the next logical tag, function, or control statement within your code using keyboard shortcuts.
Easily search your application for specific tags, attributes, and text, regardless of file location. You can use regular expressions for more complex text searches.
Speed up development by accessing methods within a CFC that have not yet been created, and request that ColdFusion Builder automatically generate the method outline for you.
Set "to do" and "fix me" points within your code to quickly identify sections and resume development where you left off.
Manage database logic and connectivity without writing SQL. Object-relational mapping (ORM) uses the open source Hibernate library to enable database-independent development. Then the ORM Application Wizard generates CFCs for logic without writing code.
Accelerate the development of Flex and Adobe AIR® apps. Use Adobe Flash® Builder™ 4.5 to introspect CFCs and automatically generate corresponding ActionScript® objects. Also leverage web services.
Maintain the integrity of your code with smart features that help identify and reduce errors, including debugging features, preview capability, enhanced refactoring, and more.
Speed up your CFML application development thanks to automatic restructuring of code when you rename a CFC, function, or variable.
Simplify running and debugging your applications by indicating a start page that should be executed first.
Reduce testing time and long-term bug issues with integrated debugging. Launch and step through applications directly within the IDE.
Avoid errors and reduce maintenance work by previewing CFML pages before deployment. Quickly view rendered pages using the embedded Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers.
Minimize code errors and simplify long-term maintenance with the tag editor, which allows you to identify required tag attributes and assign values.
Take advantage of extensions, remote project support, integrated server management, a log viewer, and other features that streamline how you work.
Kick-start your application development using extensions for your favorite ColdFusion frameworks.
Install ColdFusion Builder 2 as a plug-in to any Eclipse™ 3.6 64-bit environment.
Save time by deploying code directly from the IDE using built-in FTP/SFTP support.
Improve team collaboration by accessing a shared codebase that is available to the entire team through remote project support.
Automatically start and stop ColdFusion servers as you open and close ColdFusion Builder, or do so manually within ColdFusion Builder. Also, launch the ColdFusion administrator or server monitor in the embedded browser.
Easily monitor your ColdFusion logs in real time as you execute applications.
Quickly access any web services available from ColdFusion.
Work how you work best. ColdFusion Builder lets you customize shortcuts, easily format and reuse code, and expand functionality with powerful extensions.
Create customized keyboard shortcuts, modify existing shortcuts, and import/export keyboard bindings to access frequent actions in the IDE.
Apply code formatting based on personalized, predefined rules to a project, folder, file, or block of code.
Expand functionality by creating extensions written in CFML. Attach menus to Remote Development Services (RDS) and projects, access the file system and data sources during execution, and expand code assist with customized code proposals.
Build and maintain applications for ColdFusion 7, 8, or 9 thanks to the inclusion of tag libraries for any of these versions.
Save custom blocks of frequently used code for reuse in all of your applications.
The little things add up to make a big difference. Easily view database tables and browse and launch files from within ColdFusion Builder, making your workflow smooth and seamless.
Open files in ColdFusion Builder directly from the operating system.
Navigate the file system or view the structure of database tables for any data source registered on your ColdFusion server.
Browse your local file system from ColdFusion Builder and open any type of file.
