ABOUT THIS SESSION:
Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Jan 21 will be "Introduction to ColdSpring", with Brian Rinaldi.
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
The ColdSpring framework for ColdFusion was originally modeled after the Spring framework for Java for handling dependency injection (DI), inversion of control (IoC) and aspect oriented programming (AOP). However, this complex sounding terminology often obscures the incredible usefulness of the framework for people new to it. This presentation will focus specifically on what problems you will encounter in a service oriented architecture that ColdSpring can help you solve. We'll cover the basics of configuring ColdSpring and how to use DI, IoC and AOP to solve real world problems.
