    Debugging in CF Builder with ColdFusion 7?

    KasiaP

      Does ColdFusion Builder debugging work with ColdFusion 7?  I was able to successfully run debugging with breakpoints with ColdFusion 8 but can't get it to work with ColdFusion 7.  If it's possible what are the settings?

       

      Thanks,

          How far have you got with reconfiguring your CFMX7 server, and what are you seeing?

           

          I get an error saying "unsupported RDS version", or similar, when I try to kick off the debugger on my test CFMX7 box.

            Hey Adam,

             

            I had no luck thus far.  I don't recall the exact error message (will have to check again at work).  I was told on experts-exchange that CF7 doesn't support debugging as there is a key piece missing - Line Debugging which you need to enable in CF8 and CF9 otherwise debugging will not work.

             

            FYI... If you decide to switch to CF8 it doesn't like IIS 5.1 which is included in XP, worked fine on Server 2003 which has IIS 6.  I've wasted some time before I figured that one out - IIS 5.1 doesn't support wildcards which is a must with RDS and debugging.  Another thing I struggled with... I installed ColdFusion Builder and used their "Frankenclipse" with no luck, well I got it to run but it would not stop at any breakpoints; as soon as I changed to Eclipse Basic and ran ColdFusion Builder install with option to add plugins to Eclipse, it worked like a charm.

             

            Good luck, and if you find anything out please let me know

             

            Cheers,

              ColdFusion debugger support was introduced in version 8. So version 7 is not supported.

                Hey Hemant,

                 

                Thanks for clearing that up!  Wish I had known that yesterday morning
