Learning Spring MVC

February 16th, 2010 No comments

Today is my first day in a four day training – Rich Web Applications With Spring. It’s a pretty intensive day from 7AM to 3PM which covered the following:

  • Quick start with Spring Tool Suite  and reference application.
  • Spring MVC essentials, including architecture, controllers, conventions.
  • Using layouts and views, including composite views with Apache Tiles, and multiple rendering technologies like Excel, PDF in addition to the HTML.
  • Processing form pages, including data binding, validation, and form tags.

I used Java Servlet and JSP about 10 years ago while working on a NMS project. At that time, there was no good MVC framework for developing a large web application. You had to program against the Java Servlet APIs directly. Jason Hunter’s book Java Servlet Programming was my favorite book.
