More than 3 million developers use Spring's well-understood, open-source platform to build enterprise integration and rich Web applications for virtual and cloud environments. Spring minimizes vendor lock-in, enables code to run in diverse environments, and helps applications retain value as environments and business priorities change. Spring's Inversion of Control (IoC) container enables Java components to be centrally configured and wired together, making code more portable, reusable, testable and maintainable. Spring's consistent programming and configuration model separates application logic from the complexity of platform services and deployment. It
Spring Mobile, Spring Android, and Spring Social extend the framework with new capabilities and the ability to run on the newest generation of devices.
vFabric Platform components are engineered to leverage the efficiencies of Spring-built applications.
Spring Insight Operations, available with vFabric tc Server Spring Edition, provides a dashboard view of Spring application performance metrics in real-time. Developers can test, tune, and debug applications from their desktops, without changing code. Automatic instrumentation of Spring applications running on tc Server expose application performance from both general and fine-grained perspectives.
To encourage agile development and testing, vFabric tc Server and Spring Insight are tightly integrated with SpringSource Tool Suite™ (STS), an eclipse-powered development environment that includes the latest Spring (Core, Rich Web, Integration, Batch), Groovy, Grails, and Roo technologies as well as OSGi tools.
vFabric tc Server Spring Edition includes commercial support for Spring-built applications, as well as for vFabric tc Server.
Developers can incorporate vFabric GemFire data caching into their Spring applications with minimal code, providing globally distributed, highly available data.
vFabric RabbitMQ-based messaging solutions incorporate core Spring concepts, enabling developers to easily add AMQP messaging to their applications.
