Did you know that you could use POJO programming with the Spring Framework? Learn everything there is about the Spring Framework with our Java Spring Tutorial!

Spring – An overview

Spring is an open source framework based on the Java platform and provides a comprehensive support for developing robust applications in Java in an easy manner. Spring is an excellent framework to learn and master and it has several key advantages. Here are some of the benefits of the framework:

  • Enables Programming in POJO
  • A thriving support community
  • Aspect Oriented Programming Support
  • Dependency Injection
  • Improved testing options when compared to other frameworks owing to dependency injection
  • Simplified JDBC.
  • Integration with other frameworks like hibernate

Our Java Spring tutorial course content has been prepared based on Spring Framework version 3.0 or above.
