  • Spring Framework 1.1.3 released

    -- as originally posted by Juergen Hoeller on the mailing list --

    Dear Spring community,

    I'm pleased to announce that Spring 1.1.3 has just been released. This is a bugfix and minor enhancement release in the 1.1 series; most importantly, JDK 1.3 compatibility is fully restored. Among the new features in this release are:
    • added "setResourceLoader" method to GenericApplicationContext, for overriding the default resource loading strategy
    • added FileSystemResourceLoader, resolving paths as file system resources rather than as class path resources
    • BeanWrapperImpl automatically registers a default ResourceArrayPropertyEditor
    • added CustomCollectionEditor, by default registered to convert between Set, SortedSet and List (when necessary)
    • added "fileEncoding" and "propertiesPersister" properties to PropertyResourceConfigurer
    • reworked DefaultListableBeanFactory's "getBeansOfType" to return FactoryBean instances when passed a FactoryBean type
    • DefaultXmlBeanDefinitionParser resolves "set" tag as LinkedHashSet on JDK 1.4, falling back to HashSet on JDK 1.3
    • factored out AbstractRefreshableApplicationContext as base class of AbstractXmlApplicationContext
    • added "setIgnoreUnknownFields" method to DataBinder, enforcing request parameters to match fields when turned "false"
    • added "execute(ConnectionCallback)" method to JdbcTemplate, allowing any kind of operation on a given Connection
    • added DB2SequenceMaxValueIncrementer, implementing the DataFieldMaxValueIncrementer interface for a DB2 sequence
    • fixed Hibernate/JTA synchronization to also work with EJB remote transaction propagation (with >1 thread involved)
    • added "transactionConfigClass" and "transactionConfigProperties" customization properties to SqlMapClientFactoryBean
    • added optional "proxyInterface" property to JndiObjectFactoryBean, for exposing a proxy rather than the plain object
    • added "lookupOnStartup" and "cache" properties to JndiObjectFactoryBean, allowing for lazy lookup on first access etc
    • added "codebaseUrl" property to HttpInvokerClientInterceptor, specifying a URL for dynamic class download
    • added support for dynamic class downloading to AbstractHttpInvokerRequestExecutor and its subclasses
    • DispatcherServlet by default cleans up request attributes after include request (configurable via "cleanupOnInclude")
    • UrlBasedViewResolver supports a "forward:" prefix too, for forwards to other controllers through special view names
    • added "attributes" (Properties) and "attributesMap" (Map) properties to UrlBasedViewResolver, for static attributes
    • InternalResourceView performs an include if the response has already been committed (-> forward not possible anymore)
    • JstlView and TilesJstlView respect a JSTL "localizationContext" config in web.xml, checking those messages first
    • added overloaded "createVelocityContext" and "exposeHelpers" methods to VelocityView, with passed-in servlet response
    • added "toolAttributes" property to VelocityView, taking attribute name / tool class name pairs for tools to expose
    • added JasperReportsXxxView to allow for convenient rendering of CSV/HTML/PDF/XLS web views with Jasper Reports
    • added MappingDispatchActionSupport class, as convenience subclass of Struts 1.2's MappingDispatchAction
