With over 3 Million users/developers, Spring Framework is the leading “out of the box” Java framework. Spring addresses and offers simple solutions for most aspects of your Java/Java EE application development, and guides you to use industry best practices to design and implement your applications.
The release of Spring Framework 3 has ushered in many improvements and new features. Spring Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach, Second Edition continues upon the bestselling success of the previous edition but focuses on the latest Spring 3 features for building enterprise Java applications. This book provides elementary to advanced code recipes to account for the following, found in the new Spring 3:
- Spring fundamentals: Spring IoC container, Spring AOP/ AspectJ, and more
- Spring enterprise: Spring Java EE integration, Spring Integration, Spring Batch, jBPM with Spring, Spring Remoting, messaging, transactions, scaling using Terracotta and GridGrain, and more.
- Spring web: Spring MVC, Spring Web Flow 2, Spring Roo, other dynamic scripting, integration with popular Grails Framework (and Groovy), REST/web services, and more.
This book guides you step by step through topics using complete and real-world code examples. Instead of abstract descriptions on complex concepts, you will find live examples in this book. When you start a new project, you can consider copying the code and configuration files from this book, and then modifying them for your needs. This can save you a great deal of work over creating a project from scratch!
What you’ll learn
- How to use the IoC container and the Spring application context to best effect.

- Spring’s support for remoting technologies (RMI, Hessian, Burlap, and HTTP Invoker), EJB, JMS, JMX, email, batch, scheduling, and scripting languages.
- Integrating legacy systems with Spring, building highly concurrent, grid-ready applications using Gridgain and Terracotta Web Apps, and even creating cloud systems.
- Building modular services using OSGi with Spring DM and Spring Dynamic Modules and SpringSource dm Server.
- Delivering web applications with Spring Web Flow, Spring MVC, Spring Portals, Struts, JSF, DWR, the Grails framework, and more.
- Developing web services using Spring WS and REST; contract-last with XFire, and contract–first through Spring Web Services.
