Java EE or Spring Framework – Rule #4

July 9, 2013

Java EE

I came across a Java EE / Spring Framework post on DZone the other day.

It wasn’t the first, and it won’t be the last.

I want to get in the ring, but first we need some rules.

Rule #4 – The Importance of Specifications & Standards

Specifications and standards are important. In fact, they are important to SpringSource / Pivotal and Spring Framework developers.

Spring Framework relies on or integrates with the following Java EE technologies:

  • JAX-WS
  • JAXB
  • Servlet
  • JSF
  • JSP & EL
  • JSTL
  • Dependency Injection
  • Bean Validation
  • EJB
  • JCA
  • JPA
  • Common Annotations
  • JMS
  • JTA
  • JavaMail
  • JAXP
  • JDBC
  • JMX
  • JAF

That’s 11/15 Java EE Web Profile technologies.

That’s 20/38 Java EE Full Profile technologies.

Feel free to suggest a rule via comments or Twitter (@jboss_tm).


Feel free to join the conversation over at reddit (link).

Science Fiction or Fantasy

Science Fiction. In fact, it bothers me to no end that book stores put science fiction and fantasy books in the same section.
