Building Web Applications with Spring MVC

A session at Central Iowa Software Symposium

Saturday 4th August, 2012

3:15pm to 4:45pm (CST)

In this session, we'll start with the basics of Spring MVC development, focusing on how to leverage the new annotation-driven model. With that foundation set, we'll continue by exploring the new features in Spring 3.0 and 3.1 to build RESTful web applications that can serve both human-facing content as well as resources that are consumed by machine clients.

From the very beginning, Spring has included Spring MVC, a web framework built around the Spring Framework. Originally based on a rich hierarchy of controller classes, Spring MVC served developers well, but began to look a little long in the tooth compared to other web frameworks.

Starting with Spring 2.5, Spring MVC took a major evolutionary step, breaking away from the rigid controller class hierarchy model to embrace a more flexible annotation-driven model. Often referred to as Spring @MVC, this new model has continued to improve with Spring 3.0 and Spring 3.1.
