"Merrimack" (7.0.1) is available!

Get it while it's hot, get it while it's buttered. Download available at Macromedia's site. It's also interesting to note that the U.S.S. Merrimack was a scuttled United States frigate that the Confederacy rebuilt into an iron-clad, leading to a pretty interesting stalemate that could be seen as one of the first events in modern mechanized, armored warfare.

Business cases for Framework developers

A quick list of five reasons I'd hire a candidate with framework experience over one without. This isn't to say I'd avoid candidates without framework experience - if I could find someone with really good anti-framework reasoning, they'd probably be displaying most of these five! Leading up to the Fusebox and Frameworks conference later this week, there's been discussion over whether or not "f...

The framework argument is silly.

There's a strange discussion taking place across a few ColdFusion blogs over whether or not frameworks are a "good" thing. While my opinion is probably pretty obvious, I've avoided getting involved because I think the argument itself is an exercise in the absurd. It's impossible to make an argument as to whether or not frameworks are appropriate for the same reason that two frameworks, chosen ...

Model-Glue 1.0: Inherit the Quickstart

The current Model-Glue Quickstart is great for what it is: how to create a really quick application that shows the features of the framework. However, the framework's gone beyond the scope of the original example it builds (a stock quote app). Because of this, I'm asking for volunteers to help with a new Quickstart. It'd be great to both get ideas for a new sample as well as someone who'd be...

Jared has posted a Model-Glue DTD...there are a few M-G DTD's floating around, but this is the first I've seen that declared portions of the XML as entities, which can make your life easier. More on using XML entities with Model-Glue can be found on [Read more on Joe Rinehart's blog]

Model-Glue 1.0 News

Yep, I really am working on it! Things have been crazy busy at work - combining that with some renovations and home and my summer cycling habits, I'm a little swamped. However, there are two new things in the bleeding-edge...one permanent, the other is in there for feedback: 1. Permanent: "append" attribute on the result tag Ok, so the "redirect" attribute is nice. But imagine this: y...

Model-Glue's Many Names

Model-Glue wasn't always called Model-Glue. It went through a few names, and they all have something to do with how it works. I thought it might be fun to share them, as it gives some insight into the thought behind the framework: 1. Call And Answer Ripped from a Barenaked Ladies song, "Call and Answer" talked about how I wanted a framework that used a message / listener format where even...

Over on the Model-Glue listserv (http://lists.topica.com/lists/modelglue), I'd talked about setting up a nightly build / bleeding edge site for Model-Glue. Well, you're now free to grab the latest code whenever you want: I've allowed read-only anonymous access to the Subversion (SVN) repository I'm using for Model-Glue.

Model-Glue @ WikiPedia

I got a fun e-mail this morning from Dave Shuck letting me know that someone's added Model-Glue to WikiPedia. It's at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model-Glue, and is linked to from the main ColdFusion page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ColdFusion.
