The procedure for installing Adobe® ColdFusion® Builder™ varies according to your platform (Microsoft® Windows® or Apple® Mac OS® X) and ColdFusion Builder configuration (standalone or Eclipse™ plug-in configuration). Follow the procedure applicable to your platform and configuration.

About the ColdFusion Builder installation

The Adobe ColdFusion Builder Installation wizard guides you through the various steps of the installation with an intuitive interface.

The ColdFusion Builder installer provides the following two configuration options:

If you are not sure which configuration to install, follow these guidelines:

  • If you already use and have Eclipse 3.4.2 or higher installed, select the plug-in configuration.

  • If you do not have Eclipse 3.4.2 or higher installed, select the standalone configuration. This configuration also allows you to install other Eclipse plug-ins, so you can expand the scope of your development work in the future.

The two configurations provide the same functionality. However, some menu names and the ways to access the menu commands sometimes differ slightly in the plug-in configuration.

System requirements

The system requirements depend on the operating system of your computer. To view the ColdFusion Builder system requirements, see www.adobe.com/go/learn_cfb_cfsysreqs_en

Configuring Admin Server components for a remote ColdFusion server

To start and stop a remote server from within ColdFusion Builder, an Admin server instance must run on the remote ColdFusion server. The Admin server instance communicates with ColdFusion Builder to start and stop the remote server.

Run the Admin server instance in the remote ColdFusion server

Depending on your remote server version and configuration, do the necessary tasks.

Standalone remote server version 7.0.2, 8.0.1

  1. Unzip the file AdminServerComponents.zip to {CFHome}

    The following files are copied to {cfhome}/runtime/bin:
    • adminstart.bat

    • admin_jvm.config

    • adminstart.sh

    The Admin Server instance is copied to {cfhome}/runtime/servers

  2. Go to {cfhome}/runtime/bin and run adminstart.bat (for Windows) or adminstart.sh (for Mac OS)

Multi-server/J2EE remote server version 7.0.2, 8.0.1

  1. In the AdminServerComponents.zip file, unzip the following files to JRun_Home/bin:

    • admin_jvm.config

    • adminstart.bat (for Windows) or adminstart.sh (for Mac OS)

  2. Go to JRun_Home/bin and run adminstart.bat (for Windows) or adminstart.sh (for Mac OS)

Standalone/multi-server/J2EE remote server version 9

For version 9 of the remote server, the Admin Server components are shipped, by default.

  • For standalone server configuration, go to {cfhome}/runtime/bin and run the adminstart script file.

  • For multi-server or J2EE server configurations, go to JRun_Home/bin and run the adminstart script file.

Update security properties for the remote ColdFusion server

  1. Go to {CFHome}/runtime/lib/security.properties
