  1. Spring-Annotation v1.0.2 just released (1 messages)

    with some contributions since the 1.0 release announced here on the TSS, now we are releasing the 1.0.2 version of the Spring-Annotation library. now with support for JSR 250 annotations and using the spring suport for XML Schema.
    Some additions to this new version: * Support for XML Schema Configuration, now you just need to put the tag to enable the annotation module * There is no need to create the empty to.properties anymore if all your classes are in some open directory, you just need it in the root of the jars you want to use the annotations * new @Alias annotation that enables the configuration of aliases to beans * Suport for filters in the loading of classes to enable the use in diferent contxts or modules, to enable this just use the tags includePackage or excludePackage inside the , both uses regular expressions to filter the package name. * The JSF module does not forces the use of the AspectJ loadtimeweaving anymore, working on a way to support both approaches * Now the annotation reading module supports the use of any kind of annotation, but there is no documentation of it for now, expect some news for the next release * Added support for some of the JSR 250 annotations, now you can use @PostCreate and @PreDestroy to specify init and destroy methods of your bean, and with the security module (very early stage) you can use the annotations @DenyAll, @PermitAll and @RolesAllowed to configure the secrity of your project * Started the port of some of the new JSF features, like the new Scopes (flash and conversation) to the basic web module * now there is no need to add a RequestContextListener to your web.xml it is already included in the dummy.tld inside the web module * Some more unit tests written for the framework, there is a lot missing yet. * The litle existent documentation is a litle bether, and the JavaDocs are starting to be written
    all the development team would love to hear from the readers what they think of this project, and from the way the project is progressing. please take a look at the examples, do some tests and tell us what do you think, and how can it be improved. We know that there is not much documentation at this time, but we are working on that (any help will be very welcome). the project site. here an English version of the release announcement. and here a Brazilian Portuguese version of the release announcement.
  2. How does this interact with pitchfork, which is another spring project that supports JSR-250 annotations (along with the rest of JSR-220)? Secondly, I'd strong recommend a spellchecker, statements like 'litle existent documentation is a litle bether' while hilarious and encourage people like me to say mean things about you, they probably won't contribute much to your project's success.
