The issues fixed for this release are listed in this document

This update is applicable for a standalone as well as a plugin installation of ColdFusion Builder. After applying this update, ColdFusion Builder build number should be 298831.

ColdFusion Builder has an automatic update notification that notifies the user of the updates availability.


CodeChef which Is available on github is a ColdFusion Builder extension to help you make you very productive in your CFML coding.

 

What is CodeChef?

CodeChef(as the name suggests) cooks up CFML code for you in no time. Just type in kewords related to what you want to do and you are done. Keyword can be a use cases like “write”, “read”, “create” etc. just a keyword like “file”, “pdf” etc. Once you type keywords in the search filed CodeChef presents you with various options based on it. You select the option based on your requirement and just hit enter. That’s it!!. Basic CFML code related to the selected option will be added to the file currently open in editor.

How to Run the Extension

Just select Code Chef from dynamic Views drop down and click Show View to get started.
Once Code Chef view is launched just type the action/keyword in Code Chef view (ex. write file, create pdf, loop, or get current directory), select appropriate option from suggestions and hit enter. Appropriate code will be inserted in any file already open in editor. Here is a screenshot of CodeChef view in ColdFusionBulder showing various options for a given keyword

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The current version is only a working prototype with limited options just to demonstrate the idea and its power. Here are few screenshots to give an you an idea. Download the extension and give it a try.

 

As I mentioned its just a working prototype right now so the options are not extensive. I will try to keep adding more code options and keep the project getting better and make CodeChef a really powerful CFML development tool. I will write another post on how once can contribute to add more options to it but since its just CFML and XMl it will be easy to figure it out.

Do give it a try.

In the month of August 2014, we had refreshed the update 2 just fixing the bugs arised out of Update 2. Ram has blogged it as Update 3 mistakenly. It should have been blogged as Refreshed build for Update 2. Our apologies for the confusion with regard to the update number.

I wish everyone a very happy and prosperous new year. Here comes the first blog post for the year 2015 for ColdFusion Buider 3. One of the user came across Mobile Application Development Contest blog and was further trying to develop an application using ColdFusion Builder 3. He wasn’t able to setup a connection between ColdFusion 11 and ColdFusion Builder 3.  They were trying to create a “Remote Server” connection between ColdFusion Builder 3 and ColdFusion 11, installed on separate servers (distributed setup). 

Here are the steps that will help you setup a remote host with ColdFusion Builder:-

1.     Launch ColdFusion Builder 3 and choose your workspace.

2.     Right-click on the “CF Servers” view and select Add Server

3.    Select “New server configuration” and click “OK”. You can choose “Import configurations from RDS server”, in case you have RDS server setup already and want to use existing server information.

CF Server

4.     If you can’t locate the CF Servers, then, follow the screenshot below, to enable it.

CF Server alternate

Refer to Add a remote server and fill in the details for your server.

5.     General Settings

a)     Server Name: ColdFusion server name.

b)     Description: (optional) Description of the server.

c)     Application Server: Select the drop-down list and select CF+ Tomcat Bundle (for CF10/CF11)

d)     Host Name: Name of the remote server host.

e)     Select: Is Remote.

Note: When you enter a Host Name other than localhost or 127.0.0.1, Is Remote is automatically selected.

f)     Webserver Port: Specify the port number of the remote ColdFusion server instance you are configuring. You can refer server.xml for the same at \ColdFusion11\cfusion\runtime\conf\.

g)     RDS User Name: (optional) if you are using RDS, specify the RDS user name.

h)      RDS Password: (optional) Specify the RDS password.

General Settings

Click Next to move to the next screen.

6.     Remote Server Settings

Remote Server Settings

Click Next to move to the next screen.

7.     Install Extensions

Select Install Extensions to install the extensions that are packaged with ColdFusion Builder.

a)     Browse and select the ColdFusion web root location.

b)     Browse and select the ColdFusion web root location on the remote ColdFusion server.

c)     Browse to a location within the web root to install the extensions. The extensions are installed in the Extensions directory within the selected location.

Install Extensions

8.    Click Finish to add the remote ColdFusion server instance. You can right-click on the remote server and access the ColdFusion Administrator of the remote server.

Launch CF Admin

This blog post talks about, the minimal settings required to setup a remote server for CF Builder. You can skip the Install Extensions section as well.

Note: - While configuring the remote server in CF Builder, ensure that, you are able to access/ping the remote ColdFusion server outside builder. You can probably, access the remote CF Admin in the browser, for e.g. http://ip:port/CFIDE/Administrator/index.cfm and ensure connectivity.
