Spring XML Namespaces for Fun and Profit
Spring 2.0 introduces the new concept of XML-based configuration namespaces. These namespaces allow you to define domain specific languages for configuring your applications. This session will walk through the business case behind these namespaces as well as note Spring's own use of this system to simplify common configuration tasks. The session will finish with a live coding example of how to implement an XML namespace for your own application. This will include XML Schema definition, parser implementation, and packaging in a jar file for use by consumers.
Through this session you'll learn about how Interface21 is enhancing the development experience for those building Spring based software components. You'll see how Interface21 has heard the calls for a simpler XML based configuration and developed a simple and powerful way to extend the standard configuration mechanism.
