Scorpio To Get a Debugger

As announced at cfObjective earlier today, and since blogged by Ray Camden (in real time) and others, Scorpio will feature a real interactive debugger. This is an Eclipse plug-in, so it works well with CFEclipse and Flex Builder, and provides breakpoints (with step into, step over, etc. controls), access to variables and expressions, output monitoring, and more. Debugging can be performed against local or remote servers, and multiple debug sessions (different users) can debug against the same server at once (the exact number is server configurable). If you are one of the users who lamented the loss of debugging in the move from CF5 to CFMX, we hope you’ll be happy with this frequently requested ColdFusion enhancement. For those of you who were not at cfObjective, I’ll be demoing the debugger at usergroup presentations starting tomorrow in Minneapolis and Chicago.

    I’m on the beta, so I’ve known this for a while, but I’ve been wondering if you guys just licensed FusionDebug, or if you built your own.
