Spring Geek Night at Technopark Zurich


Yesterday, I was at the spring geek night in Zurich. Sam Brannen, the author of the Spring TestContext Framework and previously a member of the SpringSource dm Server development team, has presented the new features of Spring 3.0.

With Spring 3.0 nearly everything is annotable. So, for all those who hate XML with Spring 3.0 you can now declare all things in your code.

A very magic stuff are these meta-annotations. Means, "annotate your annotations" and use the combination of it.

Normally you have done something like this.

public class CustomerService{

Then you can define the combination.

public @interface TransactionalService {}

Now you can use this new annotation for your services.

public class CustomerService{

I know this is a Java feature, but I've never realised that's possible.

Zurich is such a wonderful city. I've been there once and I was amazed by the energy it gave me. There are so many things to do all the time. I bet this festival was great. dana

I like to see that these events take place in diverse locations, because each interesting city in the world must attract through quality conferences and events. I'll try to participate next time myself to this event, especially if it takes place in Zurich.
