I want to install both the new ColdFusion Builder and Flash Builder 4, and I'm wondering what people think is the best installation configuration. Here are what I see as the options:
For the past two years I have been working with the following configuration:
I switch between using Dreamweaver CS3 and CFEclipse all the time based on what fits my need at the specific time (i.e. I find it much easier to edit CSS in Dreamweaver).
I tried the Flex Builder 3 Eclipse plug-in a while back, because I wanted to use it with my CFEclipse installation, but I found teh FB3 standalone MUCH easier to use, so I am apprehensive about trying the FB4 plug-in.
I would love to have everything in one place, but more important is ease of use - even if that means having two programs (i.e. CFBuilder and FB4) open at the same time, since that is what I have been doing for sometime now.
Curious what people have tried and had success with.
I like having my IDEs separate from one another for many reasons but here is my two primary reasons:
- It is a lot easier to have the ColdFusion and Flex Builder Debuggers running side-by-side in their own IDEs so that I can easily step through them individually.
- Each instance has its own allocated memory space and can be configured inidividually via the *.ini files.
My $0.02 worth.
