Visualforce development tools
We can edit and view Visualforce pages from the set-up area by navigating to Your Name | Setup | Develop | Pages.
But, that's not the best way to develop Visualforce pages. There are a few other ways to build Visualforce pages, which are as follows:
- The Visualforce editor pane: This is discussed under the advantages of Visualforce.
- The Force.com IDE: This IDE is used for creating and editing Visualforce pages, custom Visualforce components, static resources, and controllers.
- The Eclipse plugin for Force.com: This is same as the Force.com IDE, we can use it to create and edit Visualforce pages, custom Visualforce components, static resources, and controllers are some of the major features of the Force.com IDE.
