Hi All,
I'm very much new to Spring framework. Can anybody help me with finding proper documentation detailing the various features supported by Spring framework.
We've a portal for our organization which is currently implemented in java on a framework provided by Novell and we are now looking to implement the same on Spring framework.
Please let me know if you want me to list the main features required by our portal in order to help me out.

You can very well use Spring framework with portlets (I am doing so right now). Your question needs to be more specific though. In general I can tell you the following:
1. Go to to get details about the framework
2. There are a few intro to spring articles
3. Arguably spring framework can do pretty much everything a commonly seen J2EE application running inside a container can do. This includes remoting, transactions, working with such framework as Hibernate to do persistance, working with struts/JSF to handle presentation layer and more

If you list your specific requirements, I might be able to help you more. What are you using? WebSphere Portal? - Coming soon!
I agree. Here's the link:
