  • Spring Framework 1.1 RC2 released

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

    Dear Spring community,

    I'm pleased to announce that Spring Framework 1.1 Release Candidate 2 is available. This will be the last release candidate for 1.1; release 1.1 final can be expected very soon.

    Among the new features in this release are:
    • the new HTTP invoker remoting strategy, which uses Java serialization over HTTP (combining the strengths of RMI and Hessian)
    • RemoteInvocationFactory and RemoteInvocationExecutor strategies for HTTP/RMI invoker, for additional invocation context
    • basic JSF support in the form of a JSF VariableResolver implementation that is aware of Spring-managed middle tier beans
    • form simplification macros for Velocity and FreeMarker, providing HTML input macros etc for easy form building
    • DispatcherServlet looks for handler adapters, handler mappings, exception res., view res. in ancestor contexts as well
    • HibernateTransactionManager and HibernateInterceptor support per-transaction entity interceptor instances
    • WebLogicJtaTransactionManager which can resume a WebLogic JTA transaction even if it was marked rollback-only
    • MimeMessageHelper provides "addInline" methods for adding inline elements with content IDs (referenced via "cid:xxx")
    • Errors interface provides "pushNestedPath"/"popNestedPath" methods, for convenient handling of temporary nested paths
    • Spring's Resource objects support a "createRelative" operation, for resource paths relative to the given one
    Important changes and bugfixes include:
    • a constructor argument value without index will now just be considered once, rather than matched multiple times
    • introduced BeanDefinitionReader interface and reworked XmlBeanDefinitionParser SPI (warning: not backwards-compatible)
    • fixed TransactionAspectSupport's after-returning behavior to always call commit even if transaction is not new
    • SchedulerFactoryBean reschedules triggers in case of "overwriteExistingJobs", to update triggers of persistent jobs
    • fixed JmsTemplate102's "doSend" implementation to properly work with a JMS 1.0.2 API jar in the classpath
    As always, see the changelog for details.

    I'd like to encourage everybody to give 1.1 RC2 a try: The reason why it has not been marked 1.1 final yet is simply the further addition of new features which have not been fully reviewed.
