I am seeing a growing number of blogs, forum threads and comments dealing with IBM Rational and its support (or lack thereof) of Spring technologies.
According to IBM, "most [Spring] features install successfully" into RAD 7.5.x (the latest I could find, welcome to an update), though this is obviously not always the case. As seen in the above-referenced forum thread, some community leaders are even recommending working around company mandates to utilize Spring with other tools and then faking it when the boss is looking.
As someone on the MyEclipse Bling team and therefore someone who attempts to solve this issue with a commercial alternative, I am admittedly biased.
But, how are you solving this problem? As more and more developers at an enterprise level move towards Spring technologies, is IBM getting in the way, helping or something in between? If you use Spring, how would you (or do you) solve this problem?
