Course Description

Understand the core principles of Spring, and of Dependency Injection (DI)/Inversion of Control. Use the Spring Core module and DI to configure and wire application objects (beans) together. Understand and use the complete capabilities of the Core module, such as lifecycle events, bean scopes, and the Spring API. Work with the DAO and/or ORM modules to create a well structured persistence layer with JDBC or Hibernate. Understand and use Spring 2.0's powerful new AOP capabilities for programming cross-cutting concerns across multiple points in an application. Understand and use Spring's transaction support, including Spring 2.0's easy to use tx/aop XML configuration elements, and Java 5 annotations. Understand how Spring MVC works, and how to build well-structured Web applications with it. Understand the basics of Spring Security, and how to secure Web apps and Spring managed beans with it.
