The first public beta of Model-Glue:Unity is available for download. It has many of the same capabilities as Ruby on Rails and ColdFusion on Wheels, as well as:

  • Automatic record validation.
  • Allows implicit invocation, where one event can fire multiple controller methods, instead of a single page mapping directly to one controller mapping.
  • No need to learn pluralization rules.
  • Separation of labels and messages into XML files for internationalization.
  • Customizable “scaffolds” via XSL.
  • Pluggable framework via ColdSpring.
  • And more.

Joe Rinehart has blogged details, and also posted a YouTube video of using it to create a blog.
And talking about Joe and Model-Glue, he’ll be presenting ColdFusion and Model-Glue at an Adobe Developer Week session tomorrow, and there are still a few attendee slots left. If you want to learn more about Model-Glue, don’t miss this opportunity.
