Update 3 for ColdFusion Builder 3 is released.

This update is primarily a companion update to ColdFusion 11 Update 3 which ahs added support for PhoneGap 3.5.

This is just an Update for the ColdFusion Builder 3 installation that were installed prior to the build number 292483. Corresponding full installers with this update embedded were already released in December. Automatic update notification takes care of notifying you, if this update applies to your installation or not. So, if your installation is the one that was released in December, this update is not applicable and won't show you the notification. 

This update has the following 3 bug fixes.

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. 

 

 

Thanks,

Setting up ColdFusion Builder 3 with a remote server

January 01, 2015 / Anit Kumar Panda

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

a)     User Name: Specify the CF Admin username.

b)     Password: Specify the CF Admin password.

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.

ColdFusion Builder 3 automatic updates notification and installation

July 22, 2014 / Krishna Reddy

  Adobe ColdFusion Builder 3 | Thunder | CFBuilder | Updates

With ColdFusion Builder 3 we have implemented automatic updates feature to be in-line with Eclipse update mechanism.

 

In case of ColdFusion Builder 3 standalone installation:-

With this, if there is any update to ColdFusion Builder 3, you will receive a notification at the bottom right corner of Builder. You can click on that and install the updates.

With this mechanism only the changed plugins are pulled and installed on top of your Builder installation.

And this is always a cumulative update .i.e Latest update contains all the previous updates as well.

If you have just closed the notification without installing the update you can install by clicking on Help --> Check for Updates label.


In case of Plugin installation to Eclipse:-

Since the Eclipse is your own copy, you have to do a one-time setup to get notifications and install it.

 

Open "Window -> Preferences -> Install/Update" and configure the updater options as follows.

Click on "Automatic Updates" -> Select "Automatically find updates and notify me"

Click on "Enable Software Sites" -> Enable the site http://download.adobe.com/pub/adobe/coldfusion/cfb3pluginsrepo/ . This site is already listed. You just have to enable it.

Refer to the enclosed figures for these settings.

Once this is done on every next restart of Eclipse, updates availability is checked and notified at the bottom right corner.

By clicking on that notification message you can you can install the update.
