Hey Chris,

the springframework is using POJOs extensivly. How does the approach in Spring fits to your book? What do you think about frameworks in general and spring specifically?

Thanks a lot,
Thomas

Thomas,

I really like Spring a lot and I write about it extensively in my book.

Some of my favorite features include:
* A very flexible dependency injection mechanism
* Spring AOP for providing services such as transaction management, connection management, security etc etc.
* Spring ORM classes such as HibernateTemplate, which significantly simplify the implementation of DAOs.

I had my first real look at Spring at TheServerSide Symposium back in 2004. At the conference I realized that Spring was an extremely useful framework. So much so that the monday after the conference we started using for all new development. I never regretted that decision because development was so much easier and faster.

Thanks a lot, Chris!

Exactly the answer I was looking for and it proves me, that it was a good idea to start learning spring once ago.
