SPRING - I have been skipping this to the core till last year. I haven't even accepted any projects using the spring framework till last year. But one fine day, i was told by my Architect that we soon have to migrate a project from Struts to Spring. Since i have no other option left, i started learning it. But to my surprise, i started liking it to the core and with in no time, we migrated a small project to Spring. With that experience, i myself suggested using Spring framework in other project and successfully implemented that too.. Today whenever i remind my initial days, i smile to myself. I don't know whether i can share it here. But thought of to post my initial memories with Spring.
Spring 3 Security for sure would be having some exciting things to learn. Looking forward to implement a project with it soon.
