Spring Simple Powerful Proven

Spring 2.0 has just been released. Ironically the same day we make a strategic decision to use Spring widely in new and existing projects.

The key benefits (unordered):

  • Modular Development
  • JSP Shortcuts
  • Best of Breed AOP
  • JMS Processing Support
  • Scripting Support
  • Tight Scheduler Integration
  • Transaction Support
  • Enterprise Ready
  • Easy Configuration
  • Annotation Based Exception Handling
  • EJB Utilities
  • Efficient JDBC

But the biggest thing is that simply making your code IoC friendly improves your design and deployment options. The enterprise integrations are a bonus after that. I just wish the beans files were as simple as pico to set up.
