Is Spring 3 compatible with Google App Engine?

What are the features of Spring 3 which can be used with Google App Engine? Will they be supported out of the box without tweaking?

Thanks and good luck with the new Spring In Action book. ;)

The short answer is yes. You can take a look at this post. As far as I understand, any java app can work on app engine. Spring is no exception, and as far as I understand, spring is not supported out of the box by app engine, so you are free to use whatever version you want to use.

It seems other people are answering before I can...and that's fine with me, especially since I don't have an authoritative answer on Spring 3 and GAE (I'm kinda new to GAE...just setup my account 2 days ago and still haven't done anything with it.)

But, from what I understand, Spring 3 should work just fine on Google App Engine, so long as you don't do anything that creeps beyond GAE's special constraints (no file system access, Big Table, etc).

Thanks Alaa and Craig! I'm also new to GAE and I'm always excited to hear other people's view about it especially when it comes to using popular frameworks such as Spring.
