UPDATE – the ACME Guide now has a permanent home here.
Given the recent discussion on CFAussie with respect to difficulty in installing CFMX 7, some workmates and I have prepared a comprehensive guide to building a development workstation using Apache, ColdFusion MX 7, MySQL and Eclipse. We call this environment ACME.
The guide covers the installation and configuration of these tools and also briefly discusses several approaches we’ve adopted over time to make our development lives easier. The people who helped me put this together are very smart cookies, so they’ve helped make the guide something pretty special.
We hope you get something out of it. It’s pretty big, but like I said, it’s comprehensive.
We’d welcome your feedback on this document – what’s good, what lacks, what we should add or remove. Your suggestions will be considered when updates are made.
If you find The ACME Guide useful in your work with ColdFusion, I’d really appreciate it if you could contribute something from my Amazon Wishlist.
