Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring! If you're in the states, then I hope you're well rested from a hopefully very pleasant holiday weekend, because we've got a lot to cover this week! I hope you find this roundup useful. If you should ever want to peruse previous weeks' roundups, we've recently created a This Week in Spring hash tag for the blog archives. Anyway, we've got a lot to cover this week, so let's get on with it!
- Chris Beams has announced that the Spring Framework 3.2 RC2
has been released, consisting largely of bugfixes and refactoring as the project nears GA.
- Andy Wilkinson has announced the release and availability of the Spring Migration Analyzer,
a command-line utility that analyzes enterprise Java applications and produces a report describing the application and how it can be migrated to Spring.
Input an EAR file, get a migration effort report. It supports WebLogic, WebSphere, Java EE and JBoss in the milestone release, but we are looking for community support to make it better for GA!
