SpinFW is a framework inspired by Sean Corfield's ColdFusion framework, FW/1.
The easier way to build the framework is to use Maven.
After you have checked out the source, do the following:
cd spinfw-framework mvn install
This should then download the dependencies and install SpinFW to your local maven repository
