Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Naheed for this link. ]

"Spring is a tightly architected set of frameworks designed to support the main goals of building modern business applications. Spring has a broad set of abilities, from connecting to databases, to transaction, managing business logic, validation, security, and remote access. It fully supports the most modern architectural design patterns.

"The framework takes away a lot of drudgery for a programmer and enables pieces of code to be plugged in or to be removed by editing XML configuration files rather than refactoring the raw code base itself. You can see for yourself; this is the best framework for the user provider within Sakai. When you log in, you may want to validate the user credentials using a piece of code that connects to a directory service such as LDAP , or replace the code with another piece of code that gets credentials from an external database or even reads from a text file. Thanks to Sakai's services that rely on Spring! You can give (called injecting) the wanted code to a Service manager, which then calls the code when needed."
