Spring in Action
Spring has been one of the most exciting frameworks to emerge in the past few years. With Spring you can decouple your application's objects, enrich them with AOP, and apply transactional boundaries and security to them declaratively. It simplifies data access, remoting, web services, and JMS. It comes with its own web framework. And, even though Spring eliminates much of the need for EJBs, it will still integrate nicely with any EJBs you may have lying around. What's not to love?
Everyone's favorite Java framework continues to improve, with significant enhancements in Spring 2.5 and many more coming in Spring 3.0. Maybe you've already seen or read about Spring and perhaps you've even developed applications using Spring. But have you seen the latest that Spring has to offer.
In this example-driven presentation, I'll lead a guided tour through the key features of Spring, with an emphasis on the Spring's core facilities of Dependency Injection and Aspect-Oriented Programming. Whether you're a Spring newbie or a seasoned Spring developer, there'll be something new for nearly everyone.
