Need to add a datasource but don’t have access to the ColdFusion Administrator? One of the Blackstone extensions to Dreamweaver solves this problem for you. Click the + button above the list of datasources and you’ll be prompted for all the details needed to define a datasource, details which Dreamweaver will then submit to ColdFusion creating the datasource on the server (without ever having to open the ColdFusion Administrator). This one will make life easier for lots of users.

  1. this will work assuming that the Server Administrator hasn’t disabled or restricted the functionality. I’d think that anyone who restricts access to the admin interface for security reasons will also restrict access to this functionality as well?

  2. Just wondering, is there in Blackstone an API that one can use to write a component that would work with the server administrator or is this extra functionality restricted to DreamWaver MX/MX2004 only?
