    Obvious question... Where to send ideas for ColdFusion?

    Thank you for this. Has given me the opportunity to ask for a packager for each of the 7 phone OS, not just the iPhone, (as we've discussed by email).

    Promote it if you like it:

    Yes, ColdFusion and ColdFusion Builder are not on Adobe Labs Ideas, yet. The CF team was busy with trying to ship a product. Stay tuned, this is on their agenda.

    I hate to point this out, but Coldfusion shipped some time ago and Flex shipped this week. Which team would be busier?

    I can't help but think this is more evidence of where CF fits within Adobe's development priorities. I worry that I can see the CF sunset and that would be a shame.

    Wow, by that logic ... Flash Player is not on there, and neither is Acrobat / PDF, and no Photoshop, heck no Creative Suite either ... Adobe's biggest assets not listed, so that would also be evidence of "Adobe's development priorities", right?

    Yes, Flash Builder 4 shipped this week. And ColdFusion Builder shipped THE SAME DAY. The ColdFusion team IS the ColdFusion Builder team. And it's a very small team, a fraction of the sizer of the Flash Builder the and Flex teams. So yes, the team has been busy.

    Can you please convey this to the CF Builder Team.

    Great job especially with CFBuilder code insight feature.


    Since coldfusion does not required a strongly typed variable such as Java or C# can you please add a hint in the comment above the variable name to give insight to the type of component that is housed within the variable.

    example:
    /**
    * @cfc com.hemtalreja.myapp.MyComponent
    */
    var myComponent = Application.beanFactory.getBean("MyComponent");


    Thank you
