Role of SPRING in Enterprise Application Development


Spring makes the Enterprise Application Development simple and productive as possible. Examples of this philosophy can be seen in Spring's approach to JDBC, ORM, JMX, dependency injection, and many other important areas of enterprise application development. Spring also distinguishes between making something simple, and making it simplistic. The elusive combination is to provide simplicity and power. One source of complexity in enterprise applications arises from the implementation of features and requirements that impact multiple parts of the application. Code relating to these features ends up scattered across the application code, making it harder to add, maintain, and understand. Spring 2.0 makes it much simpler to implement such features in a modular manner, greatly simplifying the overall application code and in some cases making it tractable to implement requirements that otherwise would just be too painful to code. 

A typical enterprise application - say a web app - is structured in a number of layers. A web layer with views and controllers, a service layer presenting the business interface of the system, a data-access or repository layer responsible for storing and retrieving persistent domain objects, and working alongside all of these, a domain model in which the core business logic resides.
