Sydney Spring User Group April 2008 Meeting
Wednesday, April 30, 2008 from 6:30 PM to 7:45 PM (EST)
Sydney, New South Wales
The Sydney Spring User Group will have Paul Chapman presenting, "
"Spring 2.5: Enhanced productivity and production power"
Spring 2.5 continues its established theme of simplicity and power, offering a range of new capabilities that support developers building large, complex, mission-critical enterprise applications.
In this session, Paul will be exploring a subset of the new capabilities present in Spring 2.5, along with some of its sister products that have recently been released. Aimed at existing Spring users, this session will introduce new capabilities including automated component scanning, expanded annotated metadata services, and the considerable advancement of convention over configuration in Spring’s web framework.
Whilst these improvements considerably enhance the productivity of application developers and lower long-term maintenance cost, Spring 2.5 also significantly improves the production and runtime experience. Paul will demonstrate some of these production runtime enhancements, including OSGi bundle support and the new Spring Advanced Management Suite (AMS).
Paul’s session will be intensely demonstration oriented, focusing on refactoring an existing Spring 2.0 application to leverage the new Spring 2.5 capabilities. As such, the session will clearly communicate how these improvements reduce the amount of both Java code and XML now required, plus provide solid guidance for attendees on how to approach upgrading their existing Spring 2.0 applications.
Registration and refreshments open from 6:00 pm, with the formal meeting kicking off at 6:30 pm and finishing around 7:30 pm. There will be opportunities for networking both before and after the meeting.
