Three advantages of integrating Struts into Spring

Three advantages of integrating Struts into Spring

There are so many advantages of integrating a Struts application into the Spring framework. These three points I got from Mr.George Franciscus’s article in Developerworks.

1. Spring was explicitly designed to resolve some of the real-world problems of JEE, such as complexity, poor performance, testability, and much more.

2. The Spring framework includes an AOP implementation that lets you apply aspect-oriented techniques to normal object-oriented code.

3. Some might say that the Spring framework just handles Struts better than Struts handles itself šŸ™‚

Spring in Action, Second Edition

Spring in action 2ndĀ editionSpring is a fresh breeze blowing over the Java landscape. Based on the principles of dependency injection, interface-oriented design, and aspect-oriented programming, Spring combines enterprise application power with the simplicity of plain-old Java objects (POJOs).

In this second edition, Spring in Action has been completely updated to cover the exciting new features of Spring 2.0. The book begins by introducing you to the core concepts of Spring and then quickly launches into a hands-on exploration of the framework. Combining short code snippets and an ongoing example developed throughout the book, it shows you how to build simple and efficient J2EE applications. Read more here
