Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring. As usual, we’ve got a lot to look at this week so let’s get to it..
- The video from Chris Beams’s recent webinar
on the various styles of dependency injection that Spring supports
is up. Chris is a core Spring framework engineer (and all around good guy). This video is definitely worth a
watch especially if you still think Spring configurations requires XML.
- After you’ve watched Chris Beams’ amazing webinar, you might check out Steve Schols’ blog, which
offers a perspective on
which approach to dependency injection (constructor- or setter-based injection) to take, and relates them to
relevant support in the Spring framework. The Spring framework, of course, supports both setter- and constructor-based injection, but it’s nonetheless interesting to see one person’s perspective of the tradeoffs in using one or the other.
- Carlo Scarioni has put together a great post introducing how
to create custom
Spring 3 XML namespaces. The XML namespace mechanism is one that is available for public consumption: you don’t have to be a
SpringSource engineer to wrap your API in an XML namespace and make it available for consumption by other
engineers. XML namespaces can pack a lot of punch! It is common to see open source, third party APIs also expose an XML
namespace, and it’s easy enough to do that every team should consider exposing one of their own.
- Ken Rimple, co-author of Spring Roo in Action, has put together a wonderful
blog on how
to unit-test Spring Roo addons.
- Matt Vickery is at it again, this time with an amazing post on
to use the dynamic duo of Spring Integration’s
- Avner has written a post about
sharing Spring MVC localization with the client side.
- The VoltDB blog has a great post on using Spring’s
@Scheduledannotation to run
- Arjen Poutsma has announced
the availability of Spring Web Services 2.1.0.RELEASE. The new release
includes many updates to third party dependencies, and mainly marks the stabilization point
of the 2.1 line.
- The Hyperic blog has an interesting post on the updates to Hyperic as part of the larger, recent vFabric 5.1 line that
support Tomcat 7</A>. </LI>
