I am trying to start developing RIA on Solaris platforms. I am a ColdFusion adept and have been doing Flex for a while. I have not the muscles to pick up a new tool such as NetBeans or Studio and learn all over again.
I want to know how to develop my apps with CodFusion on Solaris. There is no adobe suite fo Solaris such as dreamweaver or Flex. ColdFusion ships on Solaris so there are certainly some of you programming with it.
I need some recommendations on IDE and ways to develop with ColdFusion for Solaris platforms. The idea being to create RIA and one day AIR type apps for Solaris desktops if Adobe ships AIR for Solaris.
I'd have replied sooner, but I wasn't 100% sure Eclipse would run on Solaris until I got confirmation about it today. Apparently you just have to run the Java executable that comes in the downloadable Linux version (so says my source).
You could effectively do all your development with (free) ColdFusion Developer Edition, CFEclipse, Flex Builder (Alpha 3 as of now) on Linux. This will enforce Unix practices such as attention to case sensitivity. Then when development and testing is complete, you could publish the application in your ColdFusion Enterprise Edition on Solaris. The differences between CF on Linux and CF on Solaris are negligible.

Some Indian CF dev posted it on LinkedIn (quoted exactly as above) as a message from Adobe so maybe Nick got it from there and wasn't paying attention?
"So the answer when Adobe would dump ColdFusion the same way they did Fireworks last week, Flash last year and progressively every otherproduct they got from Macromedia - is soon.
When will they get to the last man standing - Dreamweaver or is Muse…"
Dear members, please find below a message from Adobe,==In an effort to assist the ColdFusion community, Adobe, and the larger open source world, a few leaders in the ColdFusion arena have stepped forward to form an open source software development group known as 'Team CF Advance'. The primary purpose of this development group will be to advance ColdFusion applications as an open source solution through development and improvement of open source software solutions combined with social marketing…See More
