[FDS-36] What type of ColdFusion pages can be debugged?


Any CF page or code which runs through the ColdFusion engine may be debugged:

  • Normal ColdFusion CFM, CFC, module, cfinclude or sub-tag pages
    • Sub-pages, including CFCs, modules and included pages will generate one frame each in the Debug View, allowing variables to be viewed for each frame, and which function, file and line number corresponds to the call
    • CFCs will also expose the special Function Local Scope (var, in cfset)
  • Framework components
  • ColdFusion code called from AJAX frameworks
  • Flex CF code
  • ColdFusion Asynchronous Gateway code
  • .. etc.

The following code may not be debugged using FusionDebug:

  • Native C or C++ CFX tags
  • Java code,
  • Java, COM, Web Service or objects created with cfobject
  • JSP pages, or sections of CF pages which contain Java or JSP calls
