Download CFBuilder 2 ide_config XML Schema (XSD)

Couldn’t find any XML Schema for the CFBuilder 2 extension file ide_config.xml, so I decided to create one myself during Christmas. Why? Well a good XML Schema provides code assist and inside within Eclipse, which means faster coding and more important, less coding errors. 

Don’t know why Adobe didn’t provide us with a XSD though, or did they ...?

Anyways, below a video which shows code assist within Eclipse incase you didn’t get the picture yet. I’m using the XML Editor of Eclipse, so didn’t test the one from Adobe/Aptana.

CFBuilder XML Schema - Eclipse Code Assist

Ready to Rumble? Setting it all up is pretty easy:

  1. Download the zip which contains the XSD file (updated);
  2. Copy the ide_config.xsd file to the folder where your ide_config.xml lives;
  3. Replace the application xml tag with the code snippet below;
  4. (Re)open your ide_config.xml file;
  5. Ready, you can now press CTRL+SPACE for code assist.
   1: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   2: <application xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="ide_config.xsd"
   3:     xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
