The articlecover many aspects of the integration of Spring and DHTMLX trying to get the best of both worlds, including client and server site validation, MVC architecture, and URL mapping best practice. The DHTMLX Spring Adapter code presented comes from an open source library that will be included in the upcoming release of the DHTMLX Java Tag Library.
In the early days of the DHTMLX Java Tag library some developers of a large financial company asked me to give code examples with the Spring Framework. I have also received requests from blog readers to provide examples of using DHTMLX and Spring, so I am taking the opportunity to write a series of posts on the subject. I have dug up my old examples, updated them to run with Spring 3.1, DHTMLX 3.0 and Google App Engine and packaged in a simple web application. Part of the DHTMLX Spring Adapter code presented comes from an open source library that will be included in the upcoming release (sometime in 2012) of the DHTMLX Java Tag Library.
