In its 3.2 and 3.3 generations, the Spring Framework focuses on core features for asynchronous processing and message-oriented architectures, as well as enhancements to its caching support and its language support. The Spring Framework project also comes with a new Gradle-based build and a new GitHub-based contribution model. In this session, we’ll discuss key features in this year’s Spring 3.2 and next year’s Spring 3.3, including support for upcoming standards such as JCache, JMS 2.0, and not least of all Java 8’s language features. We’ll also explain how we’re tracking Java EE 7.
Opting for a shorter release cycle, Spring Framework 3.2 is scheduled for release in December 2012, with the next generation of Spring Framework to follow in Q4 2013. This session presents the current plan for both generations and discusses the motivations behind them.
