Spring Framework is in the air
,----[ Quote ]
| Although Java itself was only offered up to open source last month, many
| open source development projects have arisen around Java already. One of
| the better known ones, the Spring Framework, will be the subject of a
| technical conference this week.
| Meanwhile, the new open source path for Java received Johnson's (of
| Spring) endorsement.
| "We welcome this move. We think it's good that Sun is recognizing
| the central importance of open source to today's enterprise software.
| We think that Sun has done a pretty good job to date in its
| stewardship of the Java language, but involving a broader
| community has a potential to further increase the penetration
| of the Java platform and accelerate innovation in the language,"
| Johnson said.
