Just a quick note to myself, this issue is happened to me previously and I somehow forget how I fixed it. Yesterday I accidently enabled the Whitespace characters in ColdFusion Builder which in turn displays the new line (\n) and carriage return (\r) characters as well in the Editor.
I have been using Eclipse for ColdFusion development both at my home and work with the CFEclipse plugin and I'm wondering what other developers in the ColdFusion community are using along with CFEclipse plugin for to make our daily job easy and more productive. These are the plugins I'm using along with CFEclipse so please share your plugins for ColdFusion development.
1. CFEclipse ‐ The core for the ColdFusion Development with Eclipse.
2. CF 8 Extensions for Eclipse ‐ This includes Interactive environment for debugging with ColdFusion server, RDS Data view, Log Viewer, ColdFusion Ajax and Flex Wizards.
3. Subclipse ‐ Plugin for Subversion version control system.
6. XmlBuddy ‐ Plugin for validating XML documents and XML Schemas.
Last month while fixing an issue in a very old code I have found that some of the queries haven't had the cfqueryparam for variables in SQL statements. So I thought of fixing all these queries in that application and want to implement cfqueryparam for all parameters. But It will take more time to search all the cfquery that are not having cfqueryparam in SQL statements correct but QueryParam Scanner by Peter Boughton will make this task very easier for me.
Installing QueryParam Scanner is really easy just download the code from http://www.hybridchill.com/projects/downloads.html or from http://qpscanner.riaforge.org/ and unzipped its content to your web root that's it you have done. Now you can start scanning your applications for all the missing cfqueryparam tags in the cfquery. The UI of QueryParam Scanner is simple and very friendly and it has various options on the result output formats after scanning.
I got an issue when I installed the CFEclipse in one of my system at work place. The installed versions are Eclipse 3.3.2 Europa and CFEclipse 1.3.2 beta. In previous version of CFEclipse we have the option for enabling line numbers by selecting "Windows > Preferences > CFEclipse > Editor > Show Line Number Checkbox". But this is not available in CFEclipse 1.3.2. There is another way for enabling is by right clicking the editor and check marking the "Show Line Numbers" this is also not worked for me. After goggling I have found the solution from CFEclipse discussion group.
Navigate to your Eclipse Workspace and open the File org.cfeclipse.cfml.prefs from "Workspace > .metadata > .plugins >. org.eclipse.core.runtime > .settings" folder and add this line at the end of the page.
Close the page and restart CFEclipse. Now you can able to see the line numbers in CFEclipse.
