Video: Managing projects

If you work on a large number of projects, CFBuilder can sometimes be slow to start up as it processes data in all of your active projects. In order to prevent ColdFusion Builder from slowing down, you can open and close projects so that eclipse only has to worry about the projects you want it to worry about. In order to prevent these slowdowns, consider closing projects you're not working on. To close one of those projects, all you need to do is select the project, right-click and choose Close Project. You'll notice that the icon changes to regular blue folder and the little arrow goes way that allows you to expand that project.

Managing projects

If you work on a large number of projects, CFBuilder can sometimes be slow to start up as it processes data in all of your active projects. In order to prevent ColdFusion Builder from slowing down, you can open and close projects so that eclipse only has to worry about the projects you want it to worry about. In order to prevent these slowdowns, consider closing projects you're not working on. To close one of those projects, all you need to do is select the project, right-click and choose Close Project. You'll notice that the icon changes to regular blue folder and the little arrow goes way that allows you to expand that project.

At this point, ColdFusion Builder is completely ignoring that project as if it doesn't even exist, but you still have access to it in the Navigator view and when you need to work on that project you can right-click it and choose Open Project. You'll notice that my CFBuilder logo came back and that project is now accessible again. This allows me to enable and disable projects so that ColdFusion Builder only has to worry about what I want it to worry about. And I don't have to delete the project and then re-import it later. It's immediately available to me when I need it.

Now if I don't need a project anymore, I can delete it from the Navigator by right-clicking and choosing Delete. Now when I delete a project, I can simply remove it from my workspace or if I select this option, the project will actually be deleted from my hard drive entirely. Now, notice that it does say, "Cannot be undone." These files are not moved to your Recycle Bin or the Trash. They are removed immediately. So, let's uncheck that because I don't want to lose my old sites and we'll click OK. I can also delete multiple projects at one time by selecting them, by holding down the Shift key and clicking on each project, right-clicking and then choosing Delete.

And inside the Delete Resources dialog, I can click Preview and it'll show me everything that it's going to do. So, I can see that it's going to delete both of these projects and I'm fine with that. So, I'll click OK and both of those projects are removed from my Navigator. Now you know how to manage the projects in your ColdFusion Builder installation to ensure that things run smoothly once you have a large number of projects. If you start seeing CFBuilder take a long time to startup or process files in the IDE, you should start closing inactive projects as the first step to troubleshooting those performance issues.
