The Spring framework is an application framework that provides a lightweight container that supports the creation of simple-to-complex components in a non-invasive fashion. Spring's flexibility and transparency is congruent and supportive of incremental development and testing. The framework's structure supports the layering of functionality such as persistence, transactions, view-oriented frameworks, and enterprise systems and capabilities. Spring makes JEE development easier. Spring simplifies common tasks and encourages good design based on programming to interfaces. Spring makes your application easier to configure and reduces the need for many JEE design patterns. Spring puts the OO design back into your JEE application, and it integrates nicely with JSF.

Skills Gained

  • Explain the issues associated with complex frameworks such as JEE and how Spring addresses those issues
  • Understand the relationships between Spring and JEE, AOP, IOC, JDBC, Hibernate, JSF, Struts, JMS, and EJBs.
  • Discuss the challenges to adopting Spring
  • Write applications that take advantage of the Spring container and the declarative nature of assembling simple components into applications.
  • Understand what the Spring Expression Language brings to the table and how to use it.
  • Understand and work with various options for integrating persistence into a Spring application including the recently incorporated Object XML Mapping (OXM) functionality.
  • Work with Spring's support for transactions
  • Understand and work with various options for integrating view-oriented frameworks for web applications into Spring.
  • Understand what the SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) provides in supporting advanced Spring development
  • Optionally work with the STS and SpringSource’s tc Server

Good training material and good instruction. More time needs to be provided for the lab work.

Thank you for training on AWS development. Course was good and encouraging but labs need to be improved and provide more information and ask students to more work than provide solutions.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

Excellent facilities, excellent staff.. and the coffee is good too! Thanks for helping to advance my career and the career of my colleagues!

Brandon was a great instructor. The virtual course materials and labs provided were very informative.
