Spring Framework 2.5 Introduces New Configuration Approaches and Enhanced Annotation Support
Latest Version of Spring Delivers Ultimate Component Model Solution for Enterprise Java Development

SpringSource, formerly known as Interface21, a provider of trusted open source software for building and deploying mission-critical enterprise applications, announced the release of version 2.5 of the Spring Framework. With a focus on delivering enhanced annotation options, this latest release completes Spring 2.0’s mission of providing the most flexible, most comprehensive configuration model for both Java 1.4 and Java 5.

Spring 2.5 extends the framework’s core themes of flexibility and power by providing an extensive set of configuration approaches, with an emphasis on comprehensive support for configuration annotations. Building on Spring’s current support for XML schema namespaces and various configuration annotations, this latest version introduces support for JSR 250’s @PostConstruct, @PreDestroy and @Resource, Java EE 5’s @WebServiceRef and @EJB, and Spring’s own @Autowired.

Spring 2.5 allows developers to employ configuration annotations at varying levels, from configuration hints in component classes to self-sufficient components which express their entire configuration through annotations. At the same time, the framework maintains its support for the classic Spring configuration approach. By combining a high degree of choice and flexibility with the underlying power and unmatched scalability for which the Spring Framework is well-recognized, Spring 2.5 raises the bar in enterprise Java development, providing the ultimate configuration solution.

 “With each release of the Spring Framework, SpringSource aims to push the envelope in providing solutions for the growing range of enterprise development and deployment challenges, while continuing to deliver the full power of Spring,” said Rod Johnson, CEO of SpringSource and founder of the Spring Framework. “By providing a truly comprehensive configuration model, we believe Spring 2.5 accomplishes that aim and further establishes Spring as the de facto standard for enterprise Java development.”

 Additional key features and enhancements of Spring 2.5 include:

  • Comprehensive support for Java 6 and Java EE 5 APIs
  • Enhanced support for web controllers
  • Improved testing capabilities
  • Autodetection of components in the class path
  • Extended AspectJ integration
  • Enhanced messaging support
