    									 <A href= "">		 integrating Spring with Apache Tiles</a>.
    											 Apache Tiles is a nice way to manage complex layouts in web applications 
    											and can be used wit other view technologies besides <CODE>.JSP</CODE>  like 
    											 <a href= "">Thymeleaf</a>. It's also worth noting that Tiles gives you a nice, central place to
    											make decisions about what content is rendered based on the type of request.
    											This is useful, for example, when using Spring Mobile to 
    											render mobile form-factor appropriate content or 
    											more desktop-browser centric content. 
    												<LI> Dinuka Arseculeratne over at the Java Code Geeks blog 
    													 has an interesting article on integration testing
    													<a href= "">data access logic with Spring</a> and Hibernate. Very cool!
