Routing is this thing about mapping URLs to controllers, right? But in fact, there is a lot going on.

In this talk, we will see how routing actually works and then look at extension points like ParamConverters, custom request listeners and have a look at the CMF dynamic router that loads routes from databases or other sources on the fly.
