IncubatingProject mission and goals:
The project provides a setup of a reference J2EE application based on the spring source framework configuration (www.springsource.org) with the following requirements:
- Maven build envionment
- Configuration for specific database (postgresql)
- Configuration for specific J2EE container (tomcat)
- Flexible unit testing outside J2EE container
- JPA persistence (toplink)
- Database transaction support
- Support of the spring source features:
* Spring Security
In essence this project is an extended spring source reference application. It can be used a starting point to jump into a new J2EE project and to learn the spring source application configuration.
The most important feature for me is the easy testability of new features. If I need a new feature in a real project I will test the new configuration/implementation in the reference application.
I've collected the individual configuration details from countless different blogs and source code samples. Now I think it is time to return this collected information to the public.
The source code is available but I have to document the solution before I can submit the source. Afterwards I would like to create a java.net blog to discuss the specific topics.
I hope these public discussions will keep the configuraiton up to date and point me to further/better solutions.
