Presentation: Introduction to Spring.NET

| by James Vastbinder Follow 0 Followers on Mar 07, 2008. Estimated reading time: less than one minute |

The origins of the Spring.NET Framework come from the Java world where the Spring Framework has become the de facto standard for enterprise application development.  In 2004, Dr. Mark Pollack began work on the building of a .NET based counterpart he coined, Spring.NET as he felt the core concepts in the Spring Framework extended beyond the Java Platform and were just as applicable to .NET.

Spring.NET is an Open Source framework that facilitates loosely coupled architectures by delivering a lightweight container.  Through Spring.NET, developers gain access to Aspect Oriented Programming, ADO.NET facilities, declarative transaction management, portable services abstractions and integration testing. 

The presentation, An Introduction to Spring.NET, was filmed at QCon.

No transcription by Carlos Adolfo Ortiz Quiros

I would like to understand everything said in the presentation. I know how to write English, but I am not a native speaker, and I am learning English these days and a transcription as you used to make would be a hit (ok, it on screen it cannot be present the offer a link or better, Closed Caption for the service).

You name it.

I love it. by paul atwork

I have used Spring.NET and tried to compare it to a typical 'anemic domain' architecture you might build in ASP.NET. I love it. I especially like using the Spring.Web (MVC) tools over the ASP.NET controls. Much easier to use.

I wish this was the industry standard.

Microsoft are moving to LINQ as their ORM, and I think you are seeing or will see Spring.NET copies also coming from Microsoft. (Of course you will eventually see a Grails copy too ;-)

Thanks to Mark !!


Very interesting by Dima Mazmanov

Very interesting presentation.
There are many aspects that became clear to me.
I think another presentation is necessary which compares Spring.NET to other similiar frameworks. I think that kind of presentation will clarify the decision of choosing appealing AF.

bad online presentation by Mitch Etter

I would have loved to see the whole presentation all the way through, but the example code was difficult to read in the video and the camera shaking made me ill. The presentation is not for online viewing.

Does anything original come from the .Net folks? by John Jimenez

I only see or read about technologies ported over from other worlds to .NET, particularly from the Java/JEE world. Are there any original ideas in the .NET space? It seems like these folks are content w/ just standing on the shoulders of giants. Maybe I'm wrong. Is there anything that these folks have contributed to the development ecosystem?

I don't think there is a framework that can compare with full stack of But as to IoC container, there are better ones: NInject, Castle Winsor, Structuremap, Autofac, etc.'s way is too java and not too much of C#'s new language features are used. This can be considered a advantage and dis-advantage, based on where you stand. But the wide area of technology integration is still unique in
