CFEclipse: The Developer's IDE, Eclipse For ColdFusion
CFEclipse (CFE) is a plug-in developed to integrate into the open platform created by the Eclipse Foundation

Alternative Ways to Get CFEclipse

As a Zip File
You can download CFEclipse as a zip file from the main project site: http://cfeclipse.org:
  1. Close Eclipse.
  2. Download the latest release and unzip it so that the com.rohanclan.cfml.xxx directory inside the zip ends up inside the Plug-ins directory for your Eclipse install. (The Plug-ins directory is a subdirectory of the directory containing the Eclipse executable.)
  3. Start Eclipse again.
The CFEclipse Nightly Builds
From time to time we make a snapshot of the CFEclipse code base and release it to the public for general testing and evaluation. The purpose of these "nightly" builds is to make sure that the features we are adding are working the way we expect, and that we haven't broken anything in the process. You can find out what the latest nightly build is by going to www.spike.org.uk/blog/index.cfm and taking a look in the right margin.

The instructions for installing the nightly build are exactly the same as for installing from the zip file on the main CFEclipse site.

Time and space constraints limit the amount of information we have been able to put into this article, but if you would like to learn more there are a number of excellent resources listed below.

    CFEclipse: The Developer's IDE, Eclipse For ColdFusion. Many paths lead developers to ColdFusion. In the past ColdFusion was often viewed as an entry-level language enabling designers and other nonprogrammers to build dynamic sites. Since the release of CFMX it has become more recognized among developers familiar with languages such as Java and PHP.
