In the absence of a printable schedule - sorry, Joe Rinehart says it's a problem with the Media3 hosting and he's been trying to get them to fix it for months! - here is my schedule for cf.Objective() 2009:

Scotch on the Road topic change

April 22, 2009 · 2 Comments

Since Mark Drew was also covering cloud computing in London, we've decided to offer a version of my framework comparison talk instead. I'm looking forward to that first week of June despite the crazy travel schedule (I arrive Sunday afternoon and fly back the following Saturday, hopping from Edinburgh to Heathrow on a horribly early flight).

Installing Frameworks via the Railo Administrator

April 17, 2009 · No Comments

One of the neat features of the Railo Administrator console is that you can easily install pre-packaged applications with just a few clicks. As part of my recent presentation comparing application frameworks, I installed ColdBox, ColdSpring, Mach-II and Model-Glue via the Web Administrator. There are a couple of "gotchas" about the current default settings for those installations that I wanted to cover in a blog post.

Comparing Application Frameworks recording

April 16, 2009 · 2 Comments

Last night I presented to BACFUG on ColdBox, Mach-II and Model-Glue. I just posted the recording of the presentation to Charlie Arehart's UGTV. I've edited the recording to remove some of the chatter at the beginning and end which is why it will seem to jump in without my usual biographic introduction and cuts off at the start of Q&A.

BACFUG - April 15th - Comparing Application Frameworks

April 15, 2009 · 1 Comment

BACFUG meets tonight in Alameda, hosted by Planitax (thank you!), and the featured speaker will be me! I'll be looking at ColdBox, Mach-II and Model-Glue - talking about their similarities and their differences - and showing demos of each framework. Please see the event listing on Adobe Groups for more details and to RSVP (you must login with your Adobe ID to RSVP!).

Is Choice A Good Thing?

April 06, 2009 · 19 Comments

The last week has seen some big announcements in the CF world! On March 31st, Gert announced the open source release of Railo, the next day Mark Drew announced he has joined Railo as CEO of the new Railo UK and then this week Peter Bell announced that he has also joined Railo and will be heading up the new Railo US operation. I've been using ColdFusion since 2001, back when I worked at Macromedia and my team of Java and C++ developers first encountered CFML in the form of very early builds of what went on to become CFMX (6.0). We were pretty skeptical at first.

Is Model-Glue Dead?

March 23, 2009 · 28 Comments

Back in Summer 2005, Peter J. Farrell asked is Mach-II dead? There had been very little action on the framework for ages and Model-Glue was the "new kid on the block" and was surging in popularity. A few days later, he proclaimed Mach-II is dead as a call to arms. The result was that Matt Woodward took over the Mach-II project and Peter became lead developer. Since then Mach-II has gone from strength to strength with 1.8 in development now and 2.0 in the planning stage.

Mach-II 1.6.0 Release Candidate 1

November 11, 2008 · 1 Comment

I just noticed that Mach-II 1.6.0 Release Candidate 1 has just been released! I remember looking at early builds of 1.6.0 some time ago and being very impressed by the additional features. It's great to see it reach RC status (in time for MAX?). You can read the What's New in 1.6 wiki page to learn about the recent additions. I had already used the publish/subscribe listener invocation (more like Model-Glue), the improved Application.cfc integration and the ColdSpring Property (which replaces the old Plugin). The major new features in 1.6 are caching and logging which were not in the early build I was using, unfortunately (for me!). Official support is provided for Adobe ColdFusion MX 7 / 8, Open BlueDragon 7+, New Atlanta BlueDragon 7+ (but not BlueDragon.NET - which I was a bit surprised by). They're hoping to add official support for Railo soon - but have heard that it runs just fine on that engine.

Frameworks, Frameworks Everywhere

May 09, 2008 · No Comments

Kay Smoljak is running a series of interviews with framework developers and has a summary article on SitePoint that includes a survey of people's framework usage. It's going to be a great series of articles and makes interesting reading (FarCry and COOP have been covered so far with Fusebox, Mach-II, Transfer and ColdBox coming soon - and Model-Glue and ColdSpring et al to follow). The survey will only be open for a few more days so rush over and make your voice heard!
