It’s been just a few minutes since ColdFusion Builder, Flash Builder 4, and Flex 4 hit the market.
ColdFusion Builder – The new and highly customizable Eclipse™-based IDE that enables developers to build ColdFusion applications faster than ever before. It also allows developers to save time by managing the entire ColdFusion development cycle from concept to production with one easy-to-use tool. The integration between ColdFusion Builder and Flash Builder makes it fast and easy for ColdFusion developers to create Flex applications.
Flash Builder 4 – There are over 90 new features in this release, and you can use them with both Flex 3 and Flex 4 to gain big improvements in development time, integration and building more expressive apps.
Flex 4 – This release of Flex includes the new Spark skinning and component architecture enabling a new level of expressiveness in RIAs, in addition to supporting the new Flash Catalyst-to-Flash Builder workflow.
My next set of posts will be focusing on the ColdFusion Builder release and covering more details, so stay tuned!
Search is key to the Adobe Community Help Client (CHC). You can specify various search and filter options in the CHC and search across different Help packages and search locations.
Select Help > ColdFusion Builder Help to launch the Adobe Community Help Client. In the CHC, click Search Options to display the following Search locations:
Local Help – Use this option to search the Help packages downloaded to your desktop. Click Filter Results to narrow down your search results to a specific book in the Help package.
Note that you can search Local Help only if the downloaded Help packages are fully downloaded. A good way to check if the Help packages are downloaded is by going to Edit > Preferences > Local Content. The status for the ColdFusion Builder and ColdFusion docs should read as “Current”.
Adobe.com – Use this option to search for reference content across all online resources available on adobe.com, including Developer Center articles, tutorials, and knowledgebase articles.
Community Help – This search is cumulative of all the resources available on adobe.com as well as the most relevant content contributed by experts from the Adobe community.
A new Help system – Adobe Community Help Client – has been introduced in the ColdFusion Builder Beta 3 release.
Community Help Client (CHC) is an AIR application that is configured with ColdFusion Builder to provide ColdFusion Builder and ColdFusion 9 Help content. The Help content is served directly from the web. So, when you open the CHC for the first time, an Internet connection is needed. You can then download the Help content to your desktop to use and search offline.
To launch the Adobe Community Help Client, within ColdFusion Builder, select Help > ColdFusion Builder Help.
Some of the key features of the Community Help Client are:
- Up-to-date definitive reference content online and offline
- Relevant content contributed by experts from the Adobe community
- Ability to comment on, rate, and contribute to content in the Adobe community
- Content updates and feature enhancements without reinstalling the AIR application
To learn more about the Community Help Client, see http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/communityhelp/.
One of the nice new features of ColdFusion Builder Beta 3 is the support for AIR application development.
To get started with creating an AIR project, do the following:
- In ColdFusion Builder, select File > New > Project.
- In the Create Project wizard, select HTML projects > Adobe AIR Project.
- Follow the next screens in the wizard and click Finish to create your AIR project.
You can then run or debug, package, and sign the AIR application.
Read Developing AIR applications in the ColdFusion Builder User Guide for detailed information.
