Using .jar (Java Archive) file with ColdFusion

"Java is running under the hood of ColdFusion and it is easier to use Java / Java Archives" with ColdFusion. I have been hearing about this since I have started studying ColdFusion. So I decided to take a look at it. I have studied Java only during my course and does not have much experience with it. Now, with the help of Eclipse, it is very easy to create a Java project and export it as archive.

Backup and restore settings, DSN from your ColdFusion server

When you have to re-install the Operating System or re-install Adobe ColdFusion server in your machine, you think of the tedious task of having to re-do all the settings and create the datasources again. Using the ColdFusion Archives available in the ColdFusion Administrator, you can backup and restore the settings from your ColdFusion server. The settings are stored as .car files and can be used to port the settings.

Analyze ColdFusion code for errors and code compatibility using ColdFusion Administrator

ColdFusion Administrator gives the facility to analyze your code for compatibility with current version of ColdFusion and also for errors. To start the Code Analyzer, go to ColdFusion Administrator (should be available at http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm) and go to 'Debugging & Logging' -> 'Code Analyzer'.
