Model-Glue – Web Application Framework

by Simon. Average Reading Time: less than a minute.

Model-Glue is:

  • An Implicit Invocation framework simplifying use of the Model View Controller design pattern in ColdFusion applications. It’s designed to be easy to use and play well with others, like Tartan.
  • Released under the Lesser GPL, meaning that it’s free to download, use, and alter.
  • A framework encouraging clear seperation of Model, View, and Controller
  • Lightweight enough to play well with others: it comes with out-of-the-box connectors to Paul Kenney’s Tartan Framework.
  • Akin to Mach-II, another II, MVC framework, but with slightly simpler functionality, and more clearly defined boundaries between Model and Controller.
  • Written by Joe Rinehart, a quasi-popular ColdFusion blogger with an interest in developing better OO applications in ColdFusion, with constant feedback provided by Doug Hughes of Alagad, Inc.

Frameworks can help promote good development practices, standards, and a sound foundation for creating an application.
