Simplifying Enterprise Applications with Spring, Part 1
Developing enterprise applications isn't easy. You not only have to worry about constantly evolving business logic, but also need to address infrastructure concerns ranging from transaction management and security to manageability and integration with diverse external applications. Spring, the most popular lightweight enterprise application framework, comes to the rescue by simplifying the common needs of enterprise applications. This session (part 1 of 2) presents the core concepts of the Spring Framework.
In this session we discuss the motivations behind the Spring approach to creating enterprise applications. We cover the core ideas such as POJOs, dependency injection, container configuration, testing, and aspect-oriented programming. We also show how all of these concepts work together using a simple application. By the end of this session, you will have a clear idea of what Spring is and what it can do for you.
