Hi Craig,
I developed a project based on Spring2.5 and IBatis2.3 , do you advice the migration to the new major release of Spring? Do you think it's worth it ? Is spring2.5 compatible with Ibatis 2.3 ?

Regards
Sandro .

I absolutely recommend moving to Spring 3 from any older version of Spring. My reasons are explained in several other posts on this forum, so I won't repeat them here. In short, Spring 3 affords several key benefits in terms of bean wiring and REST support to make it worth the move.

As for iBatis support...I don't use iBatis that much any more, but I do know that Spring's ORM module is compiled against iBatis 2.3.4. So, yes, I believe it will work with iBatis 2.3.

Hi Craig:

In Spring 2.5, several classes and methods — for example, paged list holders in Spring MVC — have been deprecated and scheduled for removal in Spring 3.0. Are there any guidelines not only to merely migrate existing applications to Spring 3.0, but also to migrate them in an optimal way, through usage of non-deprecated API components?

Thanks,

Jeff
