Our 6pm (US EDT) talk on Thursday July 23 will be Mike Henke speaking on "Leveraging Eclipse for ColdFusion Development".


We will cover Eclipse terms and using the Eclipse IDE (integrated development environment.) Adobe's new ColdFusion development tool, ColdFusion Builder, will be Eclipse-based so this will give you a head start toward using it. We will demonstrate how to develop ColdFusion in Eclipse starting with coding cfm and cfc pages. Once you understand Eclipse, it can be use to help code css, js, css, and even integrate seamlessly with source control and ticket systems. We will show a task-focused interface for Eclipse that reduces information overload and makes multi-tasking easy. Plugins we will be covering are basics with CFEclipse and Mylyn.


Mike Henke (pronounced hang-kee) has worked in ColdFusion development and databases since 1999. I have recently moved to the DC area from Omaha. My main focus currently is learning Ruby on Rails and CFWheels. I am also really interested in learning more about metric tools for ColdFusion and other tools to making development easier.

We are still attempting to make this meeting available as a downloadable recording. If/when available, they will be listed on the recordings page within a few days of the meeting.
