cfError helps catch exceptions or problems with applications. The problem is it can't show the steps the user took that led up to the problem. ColdFusion server debugging helps but it only shows its critical information to the end user and the rest of the world. What you need is the information from ColdFusion debugging organized by domain and client ip that can show the steps that the end user took. Stiletto captures the ColdFusion debugging output and logs them into files for you the developer to view. With Stiletto, you will have the ability to trace through the steps that the end user took and see the debugging information as if you were them. Plus, this debugging information is not exposed externally to the world.
