Smart tab assist
Quickly navigate to the next logical tag, function or control statement within your code using keyboard shortcuts.
Advanced find and replace
Easily search your application for specific tags, attributes and text, regardless of file location. Use regular expressions for more complex text searches.
Intelligent code assist
Integrated task management
Set “to do” and “fix me” points within your code to quickly identify sections and resume development where you left off.
Professional coding support
Object-relational mapping support
Manage database logic and connectivity without writing SQL. Take advantage of the ORM Application wizard to generate CFCs for business logic without writing code.
Navigate the file system or view the structure of database tables for any data source registered on your ColdFusion server.
CFML-based mobile app development
Leverage the productivity features of ColdFusion Builder to develop mobile apps. Use built-in integration with Adobe PhoneGap Build* to easily and quickly deliver them as installed apps that run on iOS and Android devices.
Use the unique on-device debugging capabilities to identify and fix errors in installed apps as well as browser-based mobile applications. Remotely connect a mobile device to ColdFusion Builder and simulate actual usage on the device by stepping through application code.
Inspect the look and feel of mobile and web applications on multiple devices using the built-in Weinre server. Modify the properties of elements using ColdFusion Builder and see the changes take effect in real time in the mobile app.
Security code analyzer *
Use the new security code analyzer to scan existing application code to automatically detect vulnerabilities and potential security breaches. Identify the exact vulnerable code, type of vulnerability and severity level and mitigate the vulnerability with the suggestion provided.
*- Available only in ColdFusion Enterprise Edition
Speed up your CFML application development thanks to automatic restructuring of code when you rename a CFC, function or variable.
Application start page
Simplify running and debugging of your applications by providing a start page to be executed first.
Reduce testing time and hard-to-fix bugs with integrated debugging. Launch and step through applications directly within the IDE.
CFML file preview
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.
Easily maintain existing code and minimise code errors by identifying required tag attributes and assigning values with the tag editor.
ColdFusion framework support
Kick-start application development using extensions for your preferred ColdFusion frameworks.
Integrated FTP and SFTP support
Deploy applications faster from the IDE by transferring code directly to the production or staging server.
Remote project support
Improve intra-team collaboration by making a shared codebase available to all team members through remote project support.
Integrated server management
Automatically start and stop ColdFusion servers as you open and close ColdFusion Builder or do so manually within ColdFusion Builder. Launch the ColdFusion Administrator or server monitor in the embedded browser.
TailView log viewer
Easily monitor ColdFusion logs in real time while executing applications.
Quickly access web services exposed by the ColdFusion server from the IDE.
Customisable keyboard shortcuts
Create customised keyboard shortcuts, modify existing shortcuts and import or export keyboard bindings to access frequent actions in the IDE.
Apply code formatting to a project, folder, file or block of code based on personalised, predefined rules.
Extensibility via CFML
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 augment code assist with customised code hinting.
Support for previous ColdFusion versions
Build and maintain applications for ColdFusion 8, 9, 10 or 11 using the included tag libraries for these versions.
Save customised blocks of frequently used code for re-use in all your applications.
