Spring framework 1.2 RC1 released

Some more jars that I’m adding to the 7000 already at iBiblio (see
my previous entry 😉 ) are the ones from Spring framework 1.2 RC1, just
released by Juergen

Dear Spring community,

It's Spring time :-)

I'm pleased to announce that Spring 1.2 RC1 has just been released.
This release introduces a number of major new features:

* finer-grained distribution jar files, alongside the full spring.jar
* AOP Alliance interfaces are now contained in spring-aop.jar and spring.jar
* XML bean definition improvements ("ref" and "value" shortcut attributes etc)
* improved AOP TargetSourceCreator mechanism (supporting LazyInitTargetSource too)
* transaction annotation support for JDK 1.5+ (annotation called "Transactional")
* improved WebLogicJtaTransactionManager (transaction names, isolation levels)
* SqlRowSet support for JDBC (in conjunction with JdbcTemplate's "queryForRowSet")
* Hibernate3 support (in orm.hibernate3; Hibernate 2.1 support is still available)
* JMX support for export of Spring beans as managed resources and for MBean access
* Commons Attributes and JDK 1.5+ annotations for JMX MBean export

This release also contains many minor enhancements, for example:

* factored out BindingErrorProcessor strategy for ServletRequestDataBinder
* improved ParameterMethodNameResolver for Web MVC MultiActionController

For a detailed list of enhancements and bug fixes, see the changelog.

This release candidate is already considered stable and recommended for development use.
We expect Spring 1.2 final to be released in late April.

Watch out for the Spring Web Flow preview release to follow later this week
(for use with Spring 1.2)!
Web Flow will also become part of the nightly build at that time.



Just let me know if any spring dependency is missing and I’ll add it.
