Didn't know where to post, sorry for thread stealing. http://blog.springsource.com/2008/10/07/a-question-of-balance-tuning-the-maintenance-policy/
Well, It's good news but still does not gurantee that SS will not do such "screw-ups" in future. Seeing the amount of backlash, I hope SS has learnt its lesson. Personally I think if Spring were to merge in JEE at some point in time as a spec, it would have a far greater adoption as companies would no longer be reluctant to go for Spring. Surely it would not hurt SS revenues as they will still be best-of-breed consultants in this area and maybe even manage to sell some Spring DM licenses.
ADF Faces Rich Client is indeed impressive. Especially the newer data visualization components. It really is the best looking and most comprehensive set of JSF components that I, personally, have seen to-date. The framework as a whole is really nice. I wrote an article on it a few years back but it has really come a long way. ADF is included with the license of an Oracle app server. I think its 5k to deploy on another app server - which is unfortunate - but not unexpected. Mike

The "downside" however is, that IE6 is out of the game. A wise decision if you ask me. I wish I had that luxury for the stuff I am working on. IE6 + DHTML-Ajax is like a pig you nail wings onto and then you have to push it down a mountain with the customer demanding that the pig has to start to fly....

Looks nice, but could not see any maven support out of the box. This would be a major hindrance to Jdeveloper adoption at least in our company.
