Open source ColdFusion

Rinehart offers DHTML custom tags component, jComponents 1.0, for a fee. The component looks great but for a fee? I'm not sure about this, but I guess we all have different value system. You can get about the same set of custom tags plus the power of DHTML form client with qForms, all for zero fee. And it's absolutely free: Rich DHTML client.

I think ColdFusion communitity should start adopting the spirit of open source development before losing it all to open source projects like Spring and Mono.

They're free for end-user use, but at the time I developed them and released 0.5, I wasn't sure enough of their main engine and wanted to retain control through the 1.0 release. Mainly, I knew I needed to rework the engine, and didn't want to deal with all sorts of branches in the source tree.

They may go LGPL sometime in the next year. Depends on if there's still a demand after some of the new rich forms stuff is available.

Keep up with the good work, Joe! Sorry for being biased, it's only that I think there should be more open source development on ColdFusion to gain market share of developers.
