Spring reached its maturity
This year, Spring Framework reached its maturity 🎉 – it’s been 18 years since its debut in 2003. Today, it is the most popular application development framework for the corporate Java™. Millions of developers use Spring to create high performing, easily testable and reusable code. jtendo does so too.
Spring Framework supports not only Java, but also Groovy and Kotlin. Especially the latter is gaining more and more fans among jtendo engineers.
Spring makes programming quicker, easier, and safer. Inversion of Control (IoC) and Dependency Injection (DI) provide the foundation for Spring Framework’s broad set of features and functionalities. Spring has the tools to help you whether you are building cloud-based, reactive microservices for the web or complex streaming data flows for international enterprise.
The most popular Spring Framework projects include:
- Spring Data
- Spring Security
- Spring Cloud
- Spring Web Services
- Spring Boot
Everything becomes even easier and faster with Spring Boot project. Spring Boot helps you build Spring-based production-grade applications and services with minimal effort. It provides production-ready features such as health checks, metrics and externalized configuration with absolutely no code generation and no requirement for XML configuration.
With the help of Spring Initializr, we can easily generate the structure of the Spring Boot Project.
Spring has a huge, diverse, global and active community that provides continuous feedback based on a wide range of real-world use cases. Guides created by the community are designed to get you productive as quickly as possible, using techniques recommended by the Spring team.
The spring.io website contains many step-by-step tutorials that show how to use Spring Framework modules effectively.
It is worth to highlight that the Spring Framework is open source released under version 2.0 of the Apache License.
In the telecom industry, applications are required to be reliable, work stable, and handle heavy traffic. Spring Framework has been used by jtendo for many years with success in developing platforms for our customers from all over the world. The direction in which the framework is developing and our previous experience indicate that we have made a good choice.
