FusionDebug™ 3.0 Released: The First Eclipse Plug-in for ColdFusion Debugging Now Includes Support for Railo 3.1 CFML Engine

Share Article

FusionDebug 3.0 is the latest release of the ColdFusion Interactive Step Debugger and is an essential tool for anyone who is serious about developing in ColdFusion. FusionDebug 3.0 supports Adobe ColdFusion 6.1, 7 and 8 and the Railo 3.1 Open Source CFML Engine, which was recently released by Railo Technologies.

FusionDebug lets you see what is happening in your application as each line of code is being executed. It can be used to set breakpoints, step over, into, or out of code, inspect variables (across different scopes), and watch expressions. You can even modify the values of variables as your code is executing, enabling you to force specific execution paths.

"I feel that Railo opens up possibilities for CFML and that makes the ColdFusion world a bigger, stronger and greater space for us all to be in" said Darren Pywell, Intergral's Chief Technical Officer. "We are happy to support the addition of Railo in the CF community by updating our CFML debugger, FusionDebug, to support Railo. For those on Adobe ColdFusion 6.1, 7 or 8, we have also added other impressive new features to FusionDebug which improve the whole experience when developing with CF."

New features included in FusionDebug 3.0

  • Full support for Railo 3.1 CFML Engine

FusionDebug is a certified debugger for Railo, a free, open-source alternative engine for ColdFusion application development. Railo CFML is compatible with the core features agreed by the CFML Language Advisory Committee and is hosted by JBoss.org. You can read more about Railo online at http://www.getrailo.org

  • Conditional Breakpoints

Focus effort and save time during debugging by setting breakpoints to only fire when your defined conditional expression is met, giving you total flexibility and control.

  • Set breaks on runtime exceptions

On a debug connect, specify which runtime exceptions to halt execution on. For the Railo users, select from a variety of built-in exceptions to help you quickly debug your code. Exceptions include: applications, expressions, databases, lock and more. For Adobe ColdFusion users, custom type exceptions are exclusively supported.

  • RTL (Run to Line) functionality

Run execution to a selected line, without having to set or alter breakpoints.

  • Associate custom file extensions with FusionDebug

Allow your custom extensions to be recognized by FusionDebug through our new preferences page. If your ".myExtension" is recognized by your CFML server, then simply add it to your list of accepted extensions and FusionDebug will treat them accordingly.

"We are excited to extend FusionDebug to support Railo and we will continue to maintain alignment of our Fusion products with the direction CFML takes in the future", said David Tattersall, Intergral's Managing Director.
