[FDS-13] How do I start debugging a page a quickly?


Here is an outline of how to get started quickly debugging. It is recommended to read the FusionDebug manual to get further information about debugging ColdFusion:

  • Create a New FusionDebug Launch (Select the Run->Debug… menu and right click on FD, select New)
  • Enter the IP address of the server
  • Select the mappings table and enter a mapping to tell FD where the Eclipse code is placed on the CF server
  • Click Debug on the Launch Configuration
  • Go to the FusionDebug Perspective
  • Set a breakpoint on a line of CF code (double click in the ruler next to the line of code)
  • Run your page in a web browser
  • FusionDebug should hit the breakpoint and highlight the line of code
  • Press Step Into (F5) or Step Over (F6)
  • You’re debugging!
