I have had lots of issues getting CF Builder installed and working.
So my goal is to get one eclipse with CF Builder, Flash Builder & FDT
Using Mac OS X (10.6.2) ColdFusion 9/port 80 (under JRun4)
to start(and why I ask here) was to install CF Builder:
step one install Eclipse (Java version Galileo).
Downloaded CF Builder as a plugin in
I did notice that the plugins where installed in /Applications/CF Builder,... but I assume that the plugins themselves were install into the eclipse plugin folder? Should I have installed everything in the eclipse folder? I just went for the defaults.
The first thing I noticed was no code hinting! I also discover after creating a server it would only last during the session. That is, on re start the server would be gone, and I would have to re create it. Also, the RDS gave be a forbidden error(I think 403). I did use the RDS password,and the server was running. As a test I did the same thing in dreamweaver CS 4 and worked perfectly, so I don't think that anything is wrong on the CF Side.
I am wondering did I just get a bad download or are others having issues as well? I have been using Eclipse for some time, and not an expert by any means, but I know my way around the IDE a little bit.
Any help would be great,
I believe this is a cache issue bacause the installation type is changed from Beta to Final release.
Installing into default location is fine as you did.
Workaround to the issue:
Remove the file named 'cfbuilder.link' from the eclipse_home\dropins directory by backing it up at some other location. Now launch the eclipse (This clear-off the eclipse cache).Now put back the cfbuilder.link file into the dropins directory and launch Eclipse to see the ColdFusion perspective.
Hope this resolves your issue.
Thanks so much for your post.
Well today I re-installed Flash Builder 4 & ColdFusion Builder(as I got the student licence). I fist installed Flash Builder 4, and then I installed ColdFusion Builder as a plugin into Flash Builder 4, and it works!
I am so happy. Maybe I should of tried the eclipse way again, but I heard many people on twitter saying this way worked for them with no issues, and it did for me too, I am so happy
thanks so much for your help,
