Spring Framework 4.1.3 / 3.2.12

One of the best open source MVC frameworks in the Java community, a lightweight, powerful, layered tool for Java/J2EE application development
The Spring Framework provides a complete suite of software development tools that accelerate the entire building, running and management of Java enterprise applications.

Combining MVC with AOP and DI (IoC), Spring is an advanced toolkit that can be a replacement or addition to the Enterprise JavaBean (EJB) model.

Spring works by taking care of all the complex code logic that resides in the underbelly of any enterprise-ready Java software, freeing the developer to focus more on the application-level business logic.

The Spring Framework comes with lots of documentation, examples, tutorials and free plugins to extend default functionality.

Main features:

  • Built on the MVC architecture pattern
  • AOP functionality
  • The most complete lightweight container
  • Common abstraction layer for transaction management
  • JDBC abstraction layer that offers a meaningful exception hierarchy
  • Integration with Toplink, Hibernate, JDO, iBATIS SQL Maps and many more
  • Support for mobile client platforms
  • Supports many modern technologies like REST, HTML 5, conversations and AJAX
  • Dependency injection support
  • Cloud infrastructure ready
  • Many security features
  • Extendable via plugins
