June 18th 5:00 for 5:15 - 6:30pm 2008 — Subject: Spring MVC - Not just a simple MVC framework

The Spring Framework has been around for several years now, revolutionizing enterprise development in Java, helping make testing easier, reduce complexity in applications, and increase performance and productivity.

And the number of sub-projects is astounding, including Spring Security, Web Flow, Web Services, Batch, LDAP and the good ol trusty MVC stack.

Spring MVC has been around since 2004 with great fanfare along with way. But only since late 2007 has the new annotation based MVC configuration been around.

Some of the topics which will be covered in the presentation:

This presentation does not try to answer the age old question 'which framework is better', instead it will explain the ins and outs of Spring MVC 2.5, including some of its more advanced features.
