Bob Brewin, CTO at Sun, on Spring

Java, Tech Add comments

James Governor of RedMonk interviewed Bob Brewin at JavaOne on a bunch of topics.

I found it interesting that Bob seemed to sweat a little when James said that Spring Wins and that Sun needs to step it up (as BEA and Oracle have).

Bob didn’t really answer the question, but instead likened the situation to Hibernate “in the spirit of how things worked with Java persistence”.

That sounds like pushing Spring down a JPA / standards path… which would definitely be a win for Sun, on many ways. It doesn’t seem as easy a fit as JPA, since Spring is overarching and gets into so many APIs… to fix them.

    hi dion,

    is it in Spring and interface21’s interests to work with sun to get some of spring stuff into java ? That would dilute their advantage, doesn’t it ?

    my 2 cents,

    Perhaps I’m misunderstanding but isn’t it more appropriate to say that Spring makes bad API’s look nicer? It doesn’t really fix them, does it?

    Not sure we’re talking about that. I think we’re more talking about integrating stuff with Spring like has been done for Hibernate and countless other products?
