The SpringOne 2006 conference is soon, from June 15 to June 16 at the Metropolis in Antwerp, Belgium.
The open source lightweight enterprise Java-based Spring Framework has been one of the two novel evolutions in Java development in some time (with the other being Hibernate). Spring has been a primary motivating force behind the needed evolutionary steps Sun’s Java EE 5 (and EJB 3) and J2SE 5 platforms needed to take to be lightweight and agile.
Rod Johnson and Spring have also actually showed that open source can be adopted successfully by corporations in the enterprise. Spring is proven. And SpringOne is likely going to be a show that illustrates this further and how Spring can be leveraged, maximized, and used efficiently in all kinds of different environments.
