Just a head's up to anyone applying this one:
1) The .jar file comes down as a .zip file. Just change the extension

2) I downloaded this one locally, uploaded to the server, and then copied over into the CFIDE folder. After that, I got a server login bix whenever I tried to use cftextarea.

Turns out the cftextarea.js file had the FTP folder priviliages, and it required more privliages to work in the CFIDE folder. Once I set them up to match the other folder in that directory, it was fine again.
