Welcome back!! Welcome aboard !!
Just to shake your brains, lets have a recap of the what I am doing here…
My plan is to “KnowMore” about Springs Framework and share my understanding and gain knowledge from experts and gurus on my way. Its as simple as that.
But before I start understanding the core, thought to know HOW springs came into existence and WHY it is still so lovable for developers across the world ?? Any guesses..?
No..!! Yes..!! Its a framework..!! Easy to write code..!! Easy to build application..!!
Before I start sharing the WHY it still the “Love Of Developers”, allow me to explain in brief HOW it came up ?
Before 2002, we have JAVA EJB, EE Applications which were in market for quite a long time. But with evolution of developers, so evolve spring as a product which is very LIGHTWEIGHT and runs on a web container e.g TOMCAT not in application server, Simple java POJO based development(I hope that all Java geeks will be here on board…)
First milestone release came in 2003, then on an average of 15-18 months, springs upgrade itself..with 2004 comes the Spring 1.0 version. By 2006 it releases Spring 1.2.6 and by fall of 2006 Spring 2.0 was released. About 8 months later spring 2.5 was released with a enhancement of using Annotation for configuration and XML configuration (please wait it is coming in soon). This trend move on with 3.0 in 2009 and the current stable version is 4.0 which supports Java SE 8, Groovy 2, and whole lot of things…
Now WHY ?
Well!! I keep it to the next in this series…
Thanks for being with me..
