Folks- I am new to Spring and trying out an example from Craig Walls' new book, "Spring in Action 3". It uses javax.inject.Inject. I am using Tomcat 7.0.10 and was getting an 'Import not found' error. I got a reply (thank you) in the Tomcat forum that Tomcat is not fully Java EE 6 compliant.
My question is...
Does this mean one may not use Spring 3 with Tomcat 7?
or is there an alternative to javax.inject.Inject I could use?
As I'm new to Spring, was it a mistake going with the 3rd Edition? should have tried 2.5 first?
I work for a small company and we cannot afford Webpshere or WebLogic, I thought we could go with Tomcat+Spring, with a small budget what are our options as far as an Application server is concerned?
I understand this may not be the right forum to ask, sorry for that.
Spring 2.5 works on Tomcat w/o further contortions, but I think it should be possible to use Spring 3 as well. If that class/package is all that's missing, you can get it from http://code.google.com/p/atinject/
