We are pleased to announce the release of Spring
Framework 1.0.1.

This is a bugfix and minor enhancement release;

the most
important fixes and new features are:

    Struts ActionSupport and
    DispatchActionSupport base classes, for
    easy access to a Spring context

  • added
    Struts ContextLoaderPlugIn and
    superseding Don Brown’s Spring Struts Plugin

    class for Tiles to be compatible
    with both Struts 1.1 and Struts 1.2

    Hibernate/JTA synchronization
    cleanup in case of Hibernate
    flushing failure on commit

  • added
    support for transaction-scoped
    Hibernate Sessions with plain JTA
    or EJB CMT, without JtaTransactionManager

  • fixed
    JdbcTemplate’s "queryForList"
    to correctly handle a single row
    with a single column as result

  • XmlApplicationContexts
    support file
    patterns as config locations (e.g.

We particularly
encourage users of Spring’s
Hibernate/JTA integration to
update promptly, to avoid any issues in case of flushing failures.

switch to the new integration classes.
