Growing up I never imagined I would play bass guitar for the Dave Matthews Band. And indeed it never happened. But I have become a passionate and pretty good web developer. I code mostly in ColdFusion and jQuery. Sam is a DZone MVB and is not an employee of DZone and has posted 16 posts at DZone. You can read more from them at their website. View Full User Profile

ColdFusion Builder 2 Beta is built on Eclipse 3.6.1 aka Helios which brings a whole bunch of cool stuff. Of most interest are probably the task tracking tool Mylyn and source control plugins for Git, for SVN and CVS plus many others.

Installing is easy.

Go to Help > Install New Software... and from the drop down either:

  • Select 'Helios...'
    or
  • Click 'Add' and enter for Name: 'Helios', Location: 'http://download.eclipse.org/releases/helios'.
You should then see a screen like this one with all your options:



Open up the Collaboration category and you will find the options for Mylyn and source control plugins. The image also shows the other plugins you can add.
