do you think Spring framework usage dominates EJBs in the near future.

From what I've heard (from a Spring adept ),
EJB3.0 does indeed improve a lot compared to 2.X, but it is still pretty heavy.
I hope Spring is going to get widespread.

Hi Satou,
It seems that you are using Spring. I'm new to Spring and referring to the book - Spring In Action.
I'm not able to run the samle code given in this book.

Can you please help me getting started with the same.
We are looking forward to use Spring for a portlet based portal application.

Please suggest some good references - easy to follow as i'm a fresher.

Thanks in Advance,

Please don't use someone else's thread for your own agenda. What you have done is considered thread hijacking and can be considered bad netiquette.

Please feel free to ask your question in a brand new thread. That way, this post will stay on topic.

As a Spring user I'd have to say that it's not really about "Spring vs EJB". So I'm not sure your question will ever be answered...

Spring is an application framework that covers a lot of turf that isn't EJB specific. So even if you are currently using EJB, I'd suggest you take a look at it.

I apologize for that. I was not aware of the process to put queries on JavaRanch.

I want to close this thread as the question is not meaningful.

In our system Spring dominates EJB indeed.
It does that mainly by serving as a frontend to an EJB system, in which most or all calls to EJBs have to go through a Springmounted application layer.

I agree. Here's the link:
