    What do you say to people who don't trust any release 0x1.0.0 products? ;-) Peace, Cameron Purdy Oracle Coherence: Data Grid for Java, .NET and C++
  3. GWT + Spring[ Go to top ]

    Here is a very good tutorial about GWT and Spring integration. http://technophiliac.wordpress.com/2008/08/24/giving-gwt-a-spring-in-its-step/
  4. a colleague and i have written a white paper about GWT. it covers all the important parts, including spring/hibernate. source code for a demo and the white paper are fully available at: http://www.maxant.co.uk/whitepapers.jsp or http://blog.maxant.co.uk/pebble/2010/01/25/1264446000000.html

    Does it support JUnit 4.5? I couldn't find it in the release notes.

    JUnit 4.5 will not be supported until Spring 3.0

    Spring was/is a very powerful framework for enterprise web development. In the beginning, it drove the whole J2EE community on lot of new / innovative items. But its been some time that a new idea or innovation have been observed other than bug fixes.

    Yes, but it does not make Spring less good :).

    What I'd really love to see if some integration between Spring and GWT, just as Spring provides some support for Struts/JSF. There are numerous blogs out there with half-way-there solutions for doing this, but I'd love to see GWT and Spring teams come up with a standard solution. Mike

    To say the truth I didn't find a really good solution yet. Probably that's because In Hosted mode GWT uses it's own web.xml Have you find one that works for you?

    But its been some time that a new idea or innovation have been observed other than bug fixes.
    I have to disagree with you, Shahzad. Spring 2.5 brought important innovations to the table, including comprehensive annotation support (including JSR-250 annotations), auto-detection of Spring components, and greatly simplified configuration. Integration with OSGi makes Spring a natural choice for use in dynamically modular environments and apparently everyone is going to be using OSGi in enterprise Java. Additionally, the upcoming Spring 3.0 will include REST support and a unified expression language. In the year since 2.5 was released, innovation around Spring has accelerated in other projects as well. Spring Web Flow 2 was released this year with innovations in progressive AJAX, JSF integration and simplification, and modular flow definition. Spring Batch was introduced and it brings an intelligent, robust framework to bulk processing that is easy to use. Also, just last week the 1.0 release candidate for Spring Integration was announced, providing concrete implementation of Enterprise Integration Patterns to developers that are familiar with Spring. Perhaps these new ideas don't touch the type of project that you are working on, which I can understand, but they are certainly more than just bug fixes. Adam FitzGerald SpringSource
  17. Spring and Seam[ Go to top ]

    Seam supports Spring Bean integration (see chapter 15 of Seam in Action). Seam also provides bijection, conversation context and business process context among many other interesting technologies. I'm not sure what the official Spring solution is to the LazyInitializationException (perhaps Open Session in View filter strategy - http://www.hibernate.org/43.html). With Seam, LIEs are no longer an issue when you use a Seam Managed Persistence Context and FlushModeType.MANUAL (i.e. persistence context does not close until the conversation is ended after em.flush() is called). Unfortunately, the JPA 2.0 expert group does not want to add MANUAL flushMode to the spec. But anyways, the idea here is that OSGi seems to be an interesting technology that SpringSource has adopted and using for Spring dm server 1.0. Perhaps taking advantage of Seam and Spring is the way to go. I was happy to see that Spring Web Flow already supports the conversation context idiom via flows. Been around for a while apparently. Just wish there was much less xml in Spring apps (but then it would be more difficult to unit test and use AOP). Has bijection been added to this latest version of Spring?
