I'm not sure how many CF 9 books there are out right now. My guess would be that it will change as we get closer to October and beyond. I would recommend following the tutorial on the CF Builder home page. That will give you an idea of how CF Builder and Eclipse kind of works. I would also try and hit the eclipse site www.eclipse.org and see how it works too. Also, keep reading this forum and watch the blogs of people like Ben Forta, and the other CF heavy weights as I am sure they will have plenty to say about CF Builder and CF 9 throughout the year.
Hope that helps,
Ben has written a nice blog post about "Getting Started With The New ColdFusion Builder". Check
If you are looking at basic videos to help you get started with ColdFusion Builder, you can see: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/coldfusion9/videos/
The ColdFusion Builder User Guide (available online both in HTML and PDF, and also as In-Product Help) will help you get started with ColdFusion Builder: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ColdFusionBuilder/Using/index.html
Since you indicate that you are new to Eclipse, you may want to pay special attention to the following topics in the User Guide:
- Introduction to ColdFusion Builder: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ColdFusionBuilder/Using/WSf01dbd23413dda0e12bd24d3121eccf26c7- 8000.html
- ColdFusion Builder Workbench Basics: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ColdFusionBuilder/Using/WS0ef8c004658c1089-2cf13501121af8ece2c -8000.html
- Getting Started with ColdFusion Builder: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ColdFusionBuilder/Using/WSf01dbd23413dda0e3d098bb81213a52da18- 7ffd.html
These topics have been written with an intent to help users new to Eclipse to get acquainted with Eclipse-specific terms and concepts and effectively use ColdFusion Builder.
Hope this helps. And along the way, if you have any questions, do bring them up.
thanks to all of you for providing so much useful information.
please keep posting all of this great information.
posting this information may seem redundant to quite a few of you. I guarantee there's at least several hundred, if not more, newcomers to Cold Fusion who find this type of information extremely useful.
I consider the internet the worlds most dysfunctional library. The information is out there somewhere. It just takes time and a lot of frustration to find what you're looking for. Sometimes I wish things were a bit more organized.
again, many thanks to all of you.
