I'm at cf.Objecive() right now and so far things look pretty promising for the future of ColdFusion. I'm especially excited about the use of Hibernate, Ehcache, implicit getters and setters, explicit local scope, and full scripting of components. Granted I've known about most of this stuff since Max, but it's refreshing to hear about it again.

Spin Move!

I decided to play around with the ColdFusion/ColdSpring/Spring/Groovy/Hibernate stack again. So far I've got 4 out of 5 working in a very simple test project without too much of a headache. I'm actually pretty surprised how easy it was to hook up Spring to ColdSpring as a parent bean factory. Now I just need to get Hibernate working, which should be interesting since I've never played with it before. I'm pretty excited since I'm thisclose to using transient objects in ColdFusion without worrying about performance.
