May 2008 – Spring Web MVC 2.5 and Beyond

TITLE:
Spring Web MVC 2.5 and Beyond

ABSTRACT:
Spring MVC is a popular web framework, and the core platform for powering Spring-based web applications. Also building on the Spring MVC platform are a number of interesting extensions.

  • Spring MVC 2.5 introduces significant new features that simplify the core MVC programming model, including support for annotated @Controllers.
  • Spring Web Flow 2 adds significant new features for implementing conversational flows within a Spring MVC-based app.
  • Spring Faces, a new module, provides groundbreaking support for JavaServerFaces in a familiar Spring MVC environment.
  • And last but not last least, Spring Javascript, a new module, integrates leading UI toolkits such as Dojo and Ext into a Spring environment.

Come to this meeting to see the killer new features in Spring MVC 2.5, Spring Web Flow 2, Spring Faces, and Spring Javascript in action, all working together in an integrated reference application. This meeting will also provide a brief overview of what is in store for Spring MVC 3.0.
