The ColdSpring framework, originally developed by Chris Scott and Dave Ross, was created to help developers manage their components and any dependencies (objects or data that the components depend on). Modeled on Java’s popular Spring framework, ColdSpring has been widely accepted by objectoriented developers in the ColdFusion community—in two separate surveys of the community, about a third of the respondents said they use ColdSpring. All of the popular MVC frameworks support ColdSpring integration, including Model-Glue, Fusebox, Mach-II, and ColdBox. Indeed, Model-Glue uses ColdSpring internally to configure the framework itself. In this article, Chris Scott explains what ColdSpring does and how you might use it in your development.
