Perhaps you’ve already heard of some of the new features like flash attributes, code-based configuration, partial validation with Hibernate Validator 4.2, and many others. This talk aims to be your comprehensive source of all that you can take advantage of in this release. We’ll use code snippets, provide pointers, and highlight the things you need to know without spending too much time on individual topics. At the end we’ll discuss what’s in store for Spring MVC 3.2.
This presentation is for seasoned Spring MVC developers and for those curious to make the most of the release. Rather than faithfully covering every change, we’ll take a deeper look at the new @MVC infrastructure classes, what has motivated the changes and what possibilities they have created. We’ll discuss pros and cons of the MVC Java config and the MVC namespace and we’ll see how to make advanced customizations with each. We’ll show examples of testing annotated controllers with the new spring-mvc-test project available on github, and more. Last but not least we’ll allow time for questions and discuss what’s planned for Spring MVC 3.2.
