Releases | Thomas Risberg | September 30, 2004 | ...

We are pleased to announce that Spring Framework 1.1.1 has just been released. This is a bugfix and minor enhancement release.

Among the new features in this release are:


element for XML bean definitions

  • support for non-public classes and non-public init and destroy methods
  • bean factory regards bean references for correct destruction order (not requiring "depends-on")
  • bean factory detects JDK 1.4 and Commons Collections for linked/identity map creation
  • factored out the "publishEvent" method into the ApplicationEventPublisher interface
  • included new "test" package in mock JAR, offering superclasses for tests requiring Spring contexts
  • added "applyQueryTimeout" method to the JdoDialect interface
  • added "addAttribute" and "getAttribute" methods to RemoteInvocation
  • explicit support for EHCache via EhCacheManagerFactoryBean and EhCacheFactoryBean
  • SimpleMessageConverter102 handles BytesMessage without JMS 1.1's "getBodyLength" method
  • added JmsGatewaySupport convenience base class
  • added ServletForwardingController and ServletWrappingController
  • BindStatus and BindTag can be created without Errors instance in the request too
  • changed MessageTag's "arguments" attribute to Object
  • added "javaScriptEscape" attribute to MessageTag
