  • Spring Framework 2.0 M4 Released

    (2006/4/23) - We're pleased to announce that Spring Framework 2.0 M4 has been released. Here's Juergen's original announcement:

    -----

    Dear Spring community,

    We are pleased to announce that Spring 2.0 M4 has been released. Download | Docs | Changelog

    Spring 2.0 M4 is the fourth milestone of the next generation of Spring.
    The new and noteworthy include:
    • updated JPA support
    • named parameter support for JDBC acces
    • refined XML schema namespaces
    • auto-proxying for FactoryBean-created objects
    • and many other refinements noted in the changelog.
    This release also contains numerous fixes for issues discovered since M3. Users of previous milestones are encouraged to update. See the changelog for details on all M4 changes.

    With this release we are approaching a feature freeze for the 2.0 production target, with only a few further features and refinements planned for inclusion in 2.0. The next release will be Spring 2.0 Release Candidate 1 (RC1), scheduled for May.

    We will also release a 1.2.8 maintenance release within a few days, backporting all applicable fixes from 2.0 M4. (This is already available from mbranch-1-2 in CVS, awaiting final tests.)

    Enjoy and keep the feedback rolling in,

    Juergen

    Hi,
    Sorry for replying this thread as i could not figure out the best place for this question. Does Spring 2.0 M4 supports scoping of beans (i.e. Storing beans in HttpSession or any pluggable implementation) as mentioned in new presenatations with refernce to Sony as its users?

      Yep, see the reference 3.2.3. New bean scopes for more info.

        However, it is worth noting that post M4 the scoping implementation and usage model will change and the new scopes will become as "core" as prototype and singleton, unlike the M1 through M4 approach, which uses Spring AOP.

          Hi Rod,
          Nice to hear from you. Can you elobarate a little more about the mentioned change.

            You will still specify a ScopeMap, as at present. However, there will be an additional attribute, probably "scope," that will allow a managed scope to be set at bean definition level. No need to use a custom tag or proxy factory bean in most cases.

              The download page has a link to version "spring-framework-2.0-m4-with-dependencies-build.6-20060427.zip". Is that really an m4-build or is it a RC1-build with an incorrect name?

              Regards,
              Peter

                That's a build of the current CVS as of 20060427, so it is indeed a snapshot working towards "rc1", and badly named.
