Instead of CFDUMP

Ways to inspect CFC returns in browser without using CFDUMP.

1. Using Chrome JSONView extension:
Install Google Chrome

Now just add to request URL: "&returnFormat=JSON". The CFC return will be shown in nice hierarchical which can be interactively expanded or collapsed.

2. In IE and FireFox using ServiceCapture
Prerequisite: buy and install ServiceCapture.

Still in request URL, add: "&returnFormat=JSON". In ServiceCapture, Response > JSON will show the data structure in expandable tree structure.
