Adobe ColdFusion Builder is an integrated development environment (IDE) that was developed by Adobe Systems for dedicated use with ColdFusion server software.

Product history[edit | edit source]

Adobe acquired the ColdFusion platform with its purchase of Macromedia in December 2005.[1] IDEs in use with ColdFusion at the time included ColdFusion Studio and HomeSite+ (which had both been previously developed at Allaire), and Macromedia Dreamweaver.[2]

Adobe based ColdFusion Builder on Eclipse,[3] which allows it to use third-party Eclipse plug-ins.[4] Eclipse had been used for third-party CFML development as early as 2004.[5] Since Eclipse itself is free, some developers opt to use it as a free alternative with plug-ins to bring its feature set more in line with ColdFusion Builder.[6][7]
