About The Mach-II Project

Mach-II is a powerful, object-oriented, open source MVC framework for CFML engines that focuses on easing software development and maintenance. Mach-II was the first object-oriented framework for CFML engines and continues to innovate with new features designed to help CFML engine developers build and maintain large-scale applications more easily.

To discount a couple of points of confusion right away, in our case Mach-II does not refer to a razor or breaking the sound barrier (as an aside, attempting to shave and break the sound barrier at the same time isn't advisable). In the context of the present discussion, Mach-II is a powerful object-oriented CFML framework that will help you build highly flexible, maintainable CFML applications. Sounds great, right? It is! Let's explain a couple of these ideas just a bit further.

  • Mach-II is powerful Mach-II is used on numerous large, high-traffic sites including portions of adobe.com. Mach-II is based on many tried-and-true principles of application architecture that have been used successfully both in desktop and web application development for years.
  • Mach-II is flexible Mach-II allows you and helps you to write highly modular CFML applications, meaning your code is highly reusable, stable, and easy to debug.
  • Mach-II applications are highly maintainable One of the great benefits of Mach-II is not only in the process of development itself but the end result. If you're lucky, your application will spend a lot more time in maintenance mode than it does in development. By using Mach-II you can not only lengthen the overall life-span of your application, but you'll make the maintenance cycle much less painful.

Is Mach-II the fountain of youth for your CFML applications and the great cure for spaghetti code of which you've been dreaming? It just might be! Once you get the hang of Mach-II you'll be amazed and how much more easily and quickly you can build world-class web applications, as well as how easily you can change and add to these applications because of the best development practices supported by Mach-II.

The Mach-II framework is developed and maintained by an active group of contributors and team members. Mach-II is proven in numerous large-scale CFML applications, and it has an active user community. Improve your CFML development by downloading Mach-II today.
