New Model-Glue:Unity Configuration File

I've spent this afternoon working on Model-Glue:Unity, fixing some tickets, changing a few things internally, and writing documentation. One of the results is that I've heavily commented the ColdSpring.xml file in the application template. This is both good and bad: it's a lot easier to read through, but it looks a lot longer / more complex than it used to. It'd be a great help it if p...

Cg4Mg: Cairngorm for Model-Glue Developers

If you're a ColdFusion developer working with the Model-Glue or any other MVC ColdFusion framework, you're already a step ahead in architecting enterprise-level Flex RIAs. That's because Flex has Cairngorm, an MVC framework for that's been "adopted" by Adobe Labs (through acquisitions). It has some terminology and desig...

ColdFusion double-checked locking demystified

I was talking to a coworker today about a strange exception we saw, and I mentioned that the lock surrounding the process may not be double checked. It drew a "What does that mean?," so I thought I'd blog the answer that shows a practical example.

Great Model-Glue:Unity Breezo!

Steve "Cutter" Blades did a great presentation on Model-Glue:Unity last night for the Nashville CFUG. I wasn't able to attend, but watched the Breezo after it was posted, and it's absolutely fantastic. It does an excellent job walking through the framework from a developer's perspective, which can be hard for me to do. For anyone who's wanted a more in-depth introduction to the framework at a g...

Model-Glue Bloating, Mach-II Dying, Frameworks Stinking...

Ah, geez. It's been a few months since CFUnited, and everyone seems to be forgetting that us ColdFusion folks are people who get along really well when we're in person (and the bar hasn't run dry). Suddenly, frameworks suck, Model-Glue:Unity is a bloated kitchen-sink framework, and Mach-II is obtuse and maybe it "should be allowed to die a dignified death." I guess that one of the responsib...

Video: Ajax Scaffolds in Model-Glue

As development on Model-Glue:Unity calms down and I enter testing/documentation, I'm spending less time working on the framework and more time testing the "extension" features the new architecture provides. As I travelled over the past week, I thought it'd be fun to write my own custom set of scaffolds that used simple "div replacement" Ajax to avoid unnecessary page reloads. The bits behind i...

Dynamic sorting with modelglue.GenericList

Yesterday on the Model-Glue list, someone asked if it's possible to dynamically sort the resultset returned by the GenericList functionality in the Model-Glue:Unity beta. Yes, it is, but you have to write a wee bit of code to do it. A bit of background: The "GenericList" is what's known as a Generic Database Message. These are pre-defined messages within Unity that allow you to List, Edit,...

No SES URLs in Model-Glue:Unity?

A few people have asked if there will be increased support for search-engine safe (SES) URLs in Model-Glue:Unity. In short, the answer is: no. There's just no need. There are established and well-tested ways of creating SES URLs via Apache's mod_rewrite and rewrite plug-ins for IIS. There's no need to add the additional complexity of something like Rails' "routes" functionality. Sorry ...

Model-Glue.com's new look

During my lunch break, I flipped a few bits to make the new Model-Glue site live. It's a bit experimental - it's running on a bleeding edge of the Unity release and prototypes of a few Actionpacks like "Headstart" (for security) and "Messageboard" for, well, simple message boards.
