There’s a great article over at the server side about Spring as the new Java EE.
I favored Spring and Hibernate over the more widely sanctioned Struts and EJB combo a long time ago. It’s always nice to see I’m not the only one embracing change and the article covers nicely similar transitions in the Java conference space.
Despite course titles like: Embracing the Standard: Migrating a Spring/Hibernate Application to Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 5, there was a lot of Spring sessions at Java One this year. Appropriate timing by The Server Side and a good read.
