You need to install EGit, an Eclipse plugin.  Go to the Help menu, and select "Install New Software".  At the top of the dialog, pick the site for Eclipse Indigo repository.  Under the Collaboration group of plugins, look for EGit or Eclipse Git Team Provider.

Thanks Carl.  That was the key, getting the correct version of EGit.  I followed other instructions that tried to install the latest version of EGit.  I kept getting conflicting software errors.  Here's the process I followed.  First, go to this link to determine the version of EGit you need:  http://wiki.eclipse.org/EGit/FAQ#What_versions_of_Eclipse_does_EGit_target.3F  Go to the table labeled "What versions of Eclipse does EGit target?"  Look at the column labeled Supported Version of Eclipse  to find your version of Eclipse.  In my case, it was Eclipse 3.7.2+ (Indigo).  There are two versions of EGit for this listed., 2.2.0 and 2.3.1.  If you look in the table above labeled "Where can I find older releases of EGit?"  you will see the column named "Release Versions"  with your version of EGit.  In the right column, labeled "p2 repository URL", you will see a link.  I used the one for EGit 2.2.0 as it was the one that installed correctly without an error.  The link I entered in CFB's install new software was http://archive.eclipse.org/egit/updates-2.2

There is a great tutorial on this at http://cfmumbojumbo.com/cf/githelp/index.htm  It is for Coldfusion 9, but it still works.

Thanks for pointing me to the right version!

In case anyone may find this post in the future (I am helping someone who did), a few points to update things:

  • For CFBuilder 2016, one would want to choose the "Mars" rather than the "Indigo" repository, when finding available extensions in CFB
  • For the link to Tim C's cfmumbojumbo blog post, it is no longer available at that URL. It is available here:
    http://web.archive.org/web/20141015025734/http://cfmumbojumbo.com:80/cf/githelp/index.htm
  • Note that he refers to using bitbucket. Some may be interested in using this with Github or other repo's, and they would work as well
  • Then again, note that even in this web archive recovery of his article, none of the images work sadly, which does diminish the value of the article some (though folks may still get some value, which is why I am linking to the archive of it)
  • There are certainly other generic overviews of using Eclipse and egit or (Eclipse Git Repository), such as https://eclipsesource.com/blogs/tutorials/egit-tutorial/ . (But note that while that tutorial says Egit is now included in Eclipse Juno and above, it was NOT included in the Mars I have for CFB 2016. But following the steps in there for finding it on "older" versons, or again those above, you can add it and then follow on with the rest of the guide, or others out there, to happily integrate Git and CFBuilder.
