Troubleshooting Installation

If you run into issues installing CFEclipse - please see the Help page for support resources.


Methods View

Since the addition of ColdFusion Components in CFMX, many developers have been wooed by the benefits they provide. When working in CFEclipse you can open a CFC and in the Methods View see a summary of the cffunction tags in your document. You can filter your functions based on type of access (private, package, public, remote) and you can sort them alphabetically.

Integrated Browser

Many Web-centric IDEs will allow you to launch the page you are currently working on into an external browser. CFEclipse allows you to open a browser window inside the IDE itself. This is very similar to what you get in both DreamWeaver and Homesite. The difference in CFEclipse is that you can specify a single root URL for a project and always have that URL loaded when you fire up the browser.

Outline View

The Outline view is designed to give you an easy to digest overview of your entire file. The real benefit is that when working in large files, you can filter your view based on the type of tag. You can filter on the currently selected element, or on a list of predefined tags such as cfmodule, cfset, cfquery, cfinclude, and cfcase.
