ModelGlue:Unity is a ColdFusion framework that comes with a lot of of functionality and power right out of the box. In this tutorial, we will download all of the files needed to install ModelGlue:Unity, set up the framework and test our configuration.
You can find the latest builds in zip file format at of ModelGlue:Unity at http://svn.model-glue.com/trunk/modelgluebuilds. Select the most recent build and save it in a folder.
Update: Make sure the version of the ModelGlue:Unity framework is at LEAST version 284.
You will run into errors if you use an earlier version of the ModelGlue:Unity framework.
You can find version 284 here. A complete list of builds is here. Note the builds are sorted alphabetically so if you want the most recent, pay attention to the LAST decimal number. I.E. modelglue_2.0.284.zip is a later version then modelglue_2.0.52.zip even though it appears above in the list.
Next, download Coldspring 1.0 into the same directory.
Update: These instructions assume you will have both frameworks in webroot.
Placing frameworks in webroot is standard and preferred practice. If for some reason you MUST place the frameworks in a directory apart from webroot, you will need ColdFusion mappings for ModelGlue and for ColdSpring. There are few good reasons to install the frameworks in a directory other than webroot. If you have a good reason to do this, then you know who you are and what to do about it.
Now, unzip the contents of modelglue_2.0.xxx.zip underneath your webroot. When complete, you should have 4 directories direct children of your webroot.
Next, unzip the contents of the coldspring.zip file underneath your webroot. When complete you should have a directory called ColdSpring as a direct child of your webroot.
Verify the directories were created properly then run http://localhost/modelglueapplicationtemplate
If everything has been installed correctly, you will see:
Model-Glue 2.0: UnityModel-Glue is up and running! Now Rejoice and tune in to the next tutorial.
