One of my favorite development tools is CFEclipse. It is a plugin to Eclipse, a cross-platform IDE. Adobe also uses Eclipse for it's flex development software. Now I know Adobe developers use CFEclipse (I am sure they still use Dreamweaver too – as do I). I also know Adobe supports Eclipse. I just wonder why Adobe does not do more to support CFEclipse and its sole developer Mark Drew. This is a guy who spends his free time helping make ColdFusion development better through CFEclipse. Why should Adobe care? Because geeky developers like me yearn for an IDE that is code centric and not WYSIWYG centric. So Adobe, please go throw some cash at CFEclipse. Or perhaps even pay for Mr. Drew's travel cost to an Adobe conference here in the states. Hey you could even be like Google and pay developers to develop open source software.
