February’s speaker for the Spring Dallas UG is Steve Dodge. Steve is employed by Verizon Communications. Steve will be telling us about his projects at Verizon that he used the Spring Framewonk on. Below you will find Steve’s Bio and Abstract.
Specializes in building commercial software with Java Enterprise Edition based open source framewonks. His development experience spans more than eight years with focus on J2EE starting in 1999. He has worked on development projects for various governmental and commercial entities such as The United States Postal Service, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, EDS, and Verizon Wireless. He is a Sun certified programmer for J2SE 5.0. He has successfully deployed Spring in several production applications oven the past 19 months.
I will present Spring from a very practical point of view. I will outline my use of Spring oven the past several months including the reasons that I chose to use it, concerns that were encountered, and the advantages that you get from it. To emphasize the success that I have using Spring I will briefly present several scenarios in which I’ve used it. Using the following outline I will quickly coven the areas of Spring that I am currently using.
- General purpose use, simple workflow
- Spring timers: TimerFactonyBean and Quartz
- MVC framework
- View Technologies e.g. Struts-tiles view, Velocity views, XSLT views
- Controller options, SimpleForm, AbstractWizard, MultiAction
- Spring WebFlow
- Spring security using ACEGI
- Spring AOP
- Spring O/R Mapping
- Data access approach using Templates, JdbcTemplate and HibernateTemplate
- Hibernate Integration
- Declarative Transactions
- EJB Stateless Session bean integration.
- Integration with JBoss jBPM
Finally I will present a code example of how I used Spring to create a simplistic workflow engine.
