I’m sure most of you reading this blog will have seen the announcement of the SpringSource Application Platform yesterday. If not, be sure to check out Rob’s blog post which describes some of the motivation, programming model, and roadmap.
A couple of common questions are being asked that I’d like to address straight away in this post. After that I’ll describe two other exciting announcements that complement the SpringSource Application Platform itself but that didn’t grab the headlines yesterday: the SpringSource Enterprise Bundle Repository and the Application Platform tools for Eclipse. Together these complete the story around OSGi-based enterprise application development with Spring.
