Chapter 37. Development Methodologies > Other Methodologies and Frameworks

Other Methodologies and Frameworks

The next four methodologies to be investigated are not quite as well known as Fusebox. cfObjects was architected by Ralph Fiol of ActiveTier Technologies in late 1999 and introduced to the ColdFusion developer community in early 2000. Blackbox was developed by Dan Chick (with assistance from Joel Mueller and Mike Imhoff) in 1999. As you might expect from Blackbox's name, it has some similarities to Fusebox. Similarly, some analogies exist between SmartObjects and cfObjects. SmartObjects was developed by Benjamin Pate in the summer of 2000. Like cfObjects, SmartObjects allows you to write object-oriented ColdFusion applications. Switch_Box was developed by Joseph Flanigan and is an interesting blend of some Fusebox elements and some object-oriented concepts.

cfObjects and SmartObjects

cfObjects is a fascinating framework that brings the basic principles of object-oriented programming to the ColdFusion development environment—a markedly non–object-oriented platform. cfObjects brings the promise of being able to separate presentation from application logic, originally described in SmallTalk's Model-View-Controller architecture.
