Must have Eclipse Plugins for CF’ers

On January 11, 2008, in Flex Builder, Eclipse, by Anuj Gakhar

Whether its FlexBuilder or CFEclipse, Eclipse is what I use all day long. I was thinking of compiling a list of really useful Eclipse plugins from the perspective of a Coldfusion developer. Here are the ones that I use :-

CFEclipse – Ofcourse!
XmlBuddy – Allows me to manage XML files better.
Subclipse – Subversion – I use it all the time.
AntView – Recently started using after looking into Ant.
MultiClipboard – Quite useful!
Coldfusion 8 Extensions for Eclipse – I really like the Log Viewer from these extensions.

Woul be nice to know what others use as well.

    If you run Eclipse Europa you get XML editor which in my opinion is better than XMLBuddy. You get default XML editor which incorporates code and design view.

  2. Mylyn is a must have! Even if you don’t use an issue tracker like Bugzilla or Trac, it is still very useful. I suppose this isn’t a must have for just CF developers, but anyone using Eclipse.

    @Jeff, that looks good. I am gonna try it out. Thanks. Does it integrate well with Trac because I use Trac for issue management currently?

    @Radek, thanks for letting me know. I was not aware of that.

  4. I’ve not used it with Trac, since my company is on Bugzilla. That said, the Mylyn interface into Bugzilla is 500% better than the Bugzilla web interface. I don’t ever use Bugzilla through the broswer anymore, instead just use it through Eclipse/Mylyn.
