This Week in Spring - May 4th, 2021

Engineering | Josh Long | May 05, 2021 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How're you doing? I hope you're doing well, and that the Fourth (of May) is with you.

Today may be the 4th, but yesterday was the third of May, and that marks the 20th anniversary of the JdbcTemplate, which I think is super cool! Happy birthday, JdbcTemplate! The JdbcTemplate was important to a lot of people because it's one of those great little utilities that made it easy to justify pulling Spring into applications almost two decades ago. It also helped people learn a lot about some of the design patterns that Spring was trying to make commonplace.

As usual, we've got a ton of stuff to get to, so let's begin!
