If you've recently switched to a version of ColdFusion which isn't yet supported by your IDE, in this case, Eclipse with the CFEclipse plugin, you may be disappointed to find that your code window is riddled with little error icons. This may be in part because your version of CFEclipse does not recognize many of the tags found in your new version of ColdFusion.

A prime example is the <cfcontinue> tag new to ColdFusion 9. If you are using a version of CFEclipse released before ColdFusion 9, you will find that it does not recognize this tag, and hence has trouble parsing it in the context of your other tags.

One safe way to avoid CFEclipse throwing errors is to properly close the <cfcontinue> tag with a trailing forward slash.

<cfcontinue />
