Three useful ColdFusion Builder links

This post is more than 2 years old.

So as I've said before - I sometimes have trouble finding things on If you're like me, hopefully the following two links will help:

Installing ColdFusion Builder (Online)
Installing ColdFusion Builder (PDF)
Using ColdFusion Builder (Online)
Using ColdFusion Builder (PDF)

And finally, I want to share a graphic Adam Lehman posted earlier. It's a competitive brief of ColdFusion Builder, Dreaweaver, HomeSite+, and CFEclipse. Click the shrunken image to enlarge.

3 links? Think I was a bit off on that. :)

Edit at 3:49PM: And yet another link - the CFBuilder Forums may be found here:

My excuse: CFBuilder is so awesome there is no way you can estimate the resources...

Did you uninstall your previous Beta prior to installing this. Would not give me the Stand-alone option until I removed my existing Beta. Uninstalled and 1.0 working well, but lost all my plugins.

Having to uninstall for Standalone is what I've experienced throughout the beta.

Wow...CFBuilder has SQL Insight...I did not know that! Very Cool.

The comparison is incorrect on some of the Dreamweaver features. Dreamweaver does have database tools. Like CF Builder there is support for some of the CF frameworks via Dreamweaver extensions. Dreamweaver also has secure FTP support.

Yeah I noticed that too.

Not to downplay the awesomeness that is CFBuilder, but I think most CFEclipse users tie it in to Aptana Studio, which does have JavaScript Insight and HTML/CSS Assist. That being said, I've got the demos installed for CFBuilder and Flash Builder and have been thoroughly impressed so far.
