Actually the latest version of cfcgenerator includes creation of the ColdSpring XML file needed to handle all the dependency resolution. Have you had a look at that?

This goes along the lines with the sticky above. Unfortunately, things are not very well-thought here at work. Templates are somewhat organized but not intuitive enough.
I would like to pick a framework and start creating things in an mvc environment.
I just installed ColdSpring - Model Glue. When I run one of the samples "Rich Widgets", I was horrified when I saw the amount of templates in the ColdFusion debug and noticed a 3735 ~ 5600 ms of load time. This is currently running on localhost. Why so much overhead?
Another sample application: form-validation
Way tooo slow.
The above form form is submitted to an "action event" that handles the form submission named "form.validate":
The "form.validate" event does a few things. Here's its XML:
<message name="needFormValidation" />
<result name="validationErrors" do="page.index" />
<result name="success" do="form.submitted" redirect="true" />
I have worked with Fusebox 3 a long time ago and haven't had a chance to use another framework. Any insight will be appreciated.

I use Coldbox MVC. But any mvc framework is a good idea to me.

We're using Mach II and as someone that's not only new to the applications that are already in place but also ColdFusion, troubleshooting and even understanding the workflow is really difficult. I love MVC, but one drawback is that it really makes it difficult for a new person to come on and work on a project that uses it. Maybe that's just my bias because I'm learning the language and the system as I go.

Mach-II is probably the most "Java-like" of all the CF MVC frameworks. Personally, I would say learn the language and features first and THEN add in things like MVC frameworks, IoC (ColdSpring), etc. Trying to do both at the same time will be difficult.

I am currently using fusebox 5.5 [no xml] for my apps. I find it makes dealing with "oh, thats cool can you make it do....." alot easier.
I have recently started to dabble in Frame Work 1 but am having a tough time getting things to work properly. Riaforge, the wiki, and the api, end up confusing me every time i read them [5x so far]
