Hello Everybody,

My question is;what are the helper and handler classes?Which part of the applications should be included in them.

I am reading a book about Spring framework and I'm facing these terms a lot.

Thanks for your help.

The helping and handling parts.

"Helpers" are just that--classes that help, like general utilities. A "handler" can be just about anything, like an HTTP request handler. They are very general terms and what they mean really depends on context.
