Something I (somehow) worked out a while ago for adding a new ColdFusion server in ColdFusion builder, that I'm not sure is widely known.
Adding a new server to ColdFusion Builder can be a bit of a pain, as you have to remember / work out a stack of details about the server, and make sure you get it 100% correct when enterting the details into all the boxes. This can be even more complicated if you have a JEE install of ColdFusion, and/or are working with remote servers.
There is actually an easier way baked into Builder already!
- Go to Windows > Preferences > RDS Configuration (or through any one of the RDS views) and create a RDS connection to the server in question.
- Go to the Server View, and click 'Add a Server'. This will now give you the option of importing from an RDS connection. Do that.
- You should now have all the fields of the Server pre-populated for you, for a connection.
- Add in any extra configuration you like from here – virtual hosts, folders mappings etc.
- You are now done.
Isn't that easier?
