SpringSource Extends Leadership Position in Enterprise Java with Spring 3.0

SpringSource, a division of VMware, Inc., (NYSE: VMW) and the leader in Java application infrastructure and management, today introduced Spring 3.0, a major new version of the world’s most popular Java development framework that is used by more than three million developers worldwide. Spring 3.0 includes powerful enhancements that make the leading Java programming model ideal for building even the most sophisticated web and service-based applications.

Spring 3.0 removes the complexity from enterprise Java without compromising developer programming power. Developers can gain further efficiencies when using the Eclipse-based SpringSource Tool Suite, the best development environment for building Spring-powered enterprise Java applications, which has been updated to support new Spring 3.0 functionality.

Today at the SpringOne 2GX conference, the annual gathering of developers and the SpringSource community, Rod Johnson, the founder and creator of Spring, will discuss the latest Spring release, SpringSource’s commitment to the developer community, and the company’s position as the undisputed leader in enterprise Java, during the show’s opening keynote.

“Spring 3.0 makes it even easier for developers to build flexible, high-quality applications while providing a foundation for innovation in other open source projects and commercial products,” said Johnson, general manager of the SpringSource division of VMware. “Spring 3.0 together with SpringSource’s runtime environments, including SpringSource tc Server, provides the most productive and highest performing development platform for enterprise Java.”

Spring 3.0 enables developers and organizations to build the latest rich web and service-based solutions on a mature, extensively tested and open application platform. The newest version of the platform features simpler development of rich web applications with full REST support as well as streamlined configuration of Spring beans and a new expression language. Since Spring 3.0 is backwards compatible with Spring 2.5, the upgrade process is quick and easy.

“SpringSource continues to deliver the technology designed to provide enterprise Java developers with a highly productive environment for creating enterprise Java applications,” said Brad Shimmin, principal analyst, Current Analysis. “The continued momentum behind Spring is undeniable, and with the Spring 3.0 release, developers now have even more reasons to use this popular development platform.”

A more in-depth overview of Spring 3.0 is available on the SpringSource blog. Spring 3.0 is available for download here.

Spring 3.0 is just one highlight of SpringOne 2GX, which takes place in New Orleans from October 19-22 and aims to bring SpringSource’s development community up to speed on the latest products and services. Numerous speakers during the show will discuss various aspects of Spring 3.0 and how it can aid overall application development, including a few specific sessions:
