Dear Spring Community,
We are pleased to announce that the third milestone release of the Spring Android project is now available!
Spring Android supports usage of the Spring Framework in a Android environment. The 1.0.0.M3 release focuses on extending the use of Spring Social in native Android applications. This includes:
- Support for Spring Social 1.0.0.M3 through the new Spring Android Auth module, which includes a SQLite datastore for persisting API connections. Spring Social is currently supported in Android version 2.3.1 (API Level 9) and higher.
- Updated RestTemplate (client) support, now at the level of Spring Framework 3.1.0.M1.
To get the software, download the release distribution, or simply add the maven artifacts to your project. To see the features live, check out the spring-android-showcase (updated for 1.0.0.M3):
git clone git://github.com/SpringSource/spring-android-samples.git; cd samples/spring-android-showcase; more README
In addition to the reference guide, Roy Clarkson has authored two blog posts to help you get started developing Android applications:
