Blue Dragon Redux & CFEclipse
Post a comment (login required)
First some corrections to last month's column regarding NewAtlanta's free  ColdFusion implementation, "BlueDragon", specifically the Linux version.  As of version 6.2, distributions more current than RedHat 9, including Fedora  Core 1/2/3, are indeed supported.  Furthermore, configuration issues,  particularly integrating BlueDragon with Apache, can be overcome through a  thorough reading of the installation guide. 

Since BlueDragon comes in a free version, let's consider another free tool  for ColdFusion, the Eclipse plugin "cfeclipse".   Eclipse is now the de  facto Java IDE (60% now use it, according to onjava.com's 2004 survey), and  is becoming more popular for other languages because of it's plug-in  architecture.  CFEclipse does not provide WYSIWYG editing, but if you also  develop in Java, perhaps even custom ColdFusion tags, then Eclipse with  CFEclipse really makes sense.
 
All the software you will need to get up and running with CFEclipse is  available at the following sites:

http://eclipse.org
http://cfeclipse.tigris.org

Indeed, this very site has been configured to run under BlueDragon alongside of Apache, on Linux

Re: Blue Dragon Redux & CFEclipse
Actually onjava.com's 2004 survey indicated that 71% of respondents use Eclipse

It was great meeting you the other day. We use eclipse with the cfeclipse plugin. It has been wonderful. Eclipse's support for CVS is just awesome and the cfeclipse plugin is excellent.
