Spring Framework 3.0- New and Notable Contact: Thea Lavin, email@example.com, (415) 512-0770
Abstract The Spring Framework is the most popular application programming framework for Java/Java EE development, with widespread adoption across many industries. Spring enables POJO-based development in any runtime environment, while making it easy for developers to access advanced enterprise services. The current Spring 3.0 release, while backward compatible, introduces significant new features and enhancements that make Spring more powerful and extensible, yet simpler to use. If you’re a Spring user, you should understand these features and how they may benefit you; if you are not yet a Spring user, you may find Spring significantly more compelling.
Rod is the father of Spring and is one of the world’s leading authorities on Java and J2EE development. Rod’s best-selling Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development (2002) was one of the most influential books ever published on J2EE. The sequel, J2EE without EJB (July 2004, with Juergen Hoeller), has proven almost equally significant, establishing a comprehensive vision for lightweight, post-EJB J2EE development.
Rod regularly speaks at conferences in the US, Europe and Asia, including JavaOne, JAOO, JavaZone, O’Reilly OSCON and The Server Side Symposium. He was awarded “Rock Star” status at JavaOne in 2005 and 2007, and delivered keynotes at the JavaWorld conference in Tokyo and the JAX conference in Munich.
Rod currently serves in the JCP on the Expert Groups defining the Java EE 6, Servlet 2.4 and JDO 2.0 specifications. His status as a leader in the Java community has been recognized through his invitation to Sun’s Java Champions program. Rod continues to be actively involved in client projects at SpringSource, as well as Spring development, writing and evangelism.
