    The global medical device company that I work for operates business systems built using Spring, Hibernate, Oracle.

    They're reasonably big systems, used almost 24x7 by offices in the US, UK/Europe, Australia, Japan and various other countries.

    There's no way that only a few of us developers could have built the systems, with their various email, scheduling, remoting, and web interfaces to the high standard that it is built without Spring. By high standard, I am reflecting on the reasonably low number of bugs compared with previous projects I've been in.

    - Spring makes it easy to do simple things quickly.

    - Systematic way to do everything so that software architecture doesn't go off the rails once the usual barrage of enhancement requests come flooding in as the business really begins using the application.

    - Even though the terms have been around for a long time, it seems like Spring pulls it all together and provides a lingo for describing how a system can be put together. You can have quite a short conversation with another Spring developer and convey a lot of information about how you intend to build a component.

      I completed work on the British Trust For Ornithology's new sales site a few months ago, and it has now gone live - http://blx1.bto.org/btos

      This is a Spring/Hibernate/Oracle/OC4J based application and since it has gone live I have had no reports of instability etc. They don't get hits in the millions, but the site is one of the more popular sites in the UK for birdwatchers apparantly so the load is fairly reasonable.

        Nice site, Cowboy Bob! Looks and feels great!

        May I ask what view technology you implemented?

          Certainly. It's just using JSP with standard JSTL includes. The site isn't really complex enough (header, footer, side nav, content) to warrant anything more heavy duty.

          I used Andromda - http://www.andromda.org/ - to generate my DTOs, DAO stubs, and Spring service stubs from a UML diagram which is a great time saver.

          Shameless plug : I also used a bunch of extension modules that I've open-sourced to do security, auto-generated breadcrumbs etc - http://mpsc-modules.sourceforge.net

            Thanks for the info and for sharing the extension modules!

              Site using Spring

              We completed an assessment some time ago now - about 12 months - which drove us to Spring, Hibernate/iBatis, and Struts. We evaluated JSF, Tapestry, Shale, SpringMVC, and a few others. It's always a bit emotional to select a winner, for us Spring MVC was real neat - but de facto pushed us to Struts. We use an interWoven CMS system, Verity (now Autonomy) Search system, and use BEA Server with Oracle 9i/10G.

              The sites will be hit about 30M/times a day - with most of the 7M registered users in the Oracle/SiteMinder security store logged in to access faults,orders, sla's, jeopardy management, etc..

              We talked to BEA almost 14 months back on this, and have migrated 2 of our portals of BEA portal - onto Open Source components as above - one is live with huge implications on the industry using Spring and above combinations - 2 others going live within 3 months and 9 months respectively.

              We have no regrets - worked greatly - should have spent some more time on meetings, conferences, etc - but u live and learn - so Spring is well alive and on our portfolio of software components to use
