What's in Spring 3?

One session talked about the upcoming Springframework 3.0. It is more annotations, support for validation in JPA/Hibernate beans. Most interesting is that Spring will solve the REST-problem in Java. Python and Ruby has already solved it. JAX-RS does not solve it in Java. It does not support a way to negotiating what format the result should be in (JSON, XML, HTML etc). Spring 3.0 solves this. So this will be very usefull. Spring 3 will be available early this summer.

The conference has ben good so far. Two days to go. I have also attended a talk about performance tuning of Tomcat and a more detailed talk about Roo wich I mentioned from the keynote.
