Ow... my freaking ears! I wish this new crop of Aussie female singers would stop sounding like crusty old gumboot wearing shielas whose idea of a good night out is having a big piss up at the Yass B&S. Oh wait... that sounds all right. No, what I mean is that it is your nasal passages are useful for breathing with, not singing through.
We've been using the Spring framework for several months now. For those of you in the know you'll forgive me, but I am very impressed with this marvelous framework and want to encourage everyone to take a look at the introductory article that got an update today.
If you are new to Spring you may find things like "IoC ", "AOP", "Dependency Injection" and "Method Injection" sounding far too alien for your tastes. My advice is to just go with the flow and give it a shot. At the end of the day, you will find that using this framework helps you write cleanly architected applications - Simple is good!
