Introduction

After installing FusionDebug, a new Eclipse perspective is available: The FusionDebug Perspective:

Figure 14: FusionDebug Perspective


This perspective is designed to get you started debugging ColdFusion pages. Broadly, they are as follows:

  • Debug View – shows the current Debug Target to which FusionDebug is connected, along with any Stack Frames which correspond to paused pages.
  • Variables – when a page is suspended, this view shows all the ColdFusion scopes and variables currently available to the page.
  • Breakpoints – lists all the breakpoints currently in use, together with their exact location  on the server.
  • Expressions – lists all the expressions currently being watched.  This view is updated whenever ColdFusion pauses due to a breakpoint or stepping action.
  • Navigator – shows all projects and folders currently in the workspace.
  • Editor Area – this is the largest area in the Perspective, and is initially empty.  Any editors opened will appear here.
  • Internal Web Browser – this is a simple web browser and can be used to call pages to trigger breakpoints.

THIS PERSPECTIVE CAN BE OPENED BY SELECTING WINDOW -> OPEN PERSPECTIVE -> OTHER AND SELECTING THE FUSIONDEBUG PERSPECTIVE.
