Hi there,
Considering the widespread usage of Spring I suggest starting a new section for Spring under products. This will ease the search for specific discussions about Spring. There might not be not much discussions going on about spring at present. But Im sure that it will not be the case in the future.

Forums are created based not upon the widespread usage or popularity of a subject or product, but on the amount of traffic it generates here. And frankly, Spring doesn't seem to be generating enough buzz to warrant its own forum at this point.

Not so sure about that myself, but if that does happen then breaking Spring out into its own forum would be considered.

Lots of traffic jams during Summer vacation. Don't know about Spring.

I also doubt that it's going to get more traffic at the ranch.

Why?
Why do you think that Spring will not receive
much interest. I was under the impression
that it was gaining a lot acceptance within the
j2ee community !!!

Have a look at the Application Frameworks forum, where Spring questions currently are concentrated. Not exactly a hub of activity.

I think Javaranch is stratified enough as it is. I have a hard enough time figuring out which forum may contain the answer I am looking for.

I find the opposite. Lots of people I know have tried it, but most end up not really seeing the utility of it.

I think this may be an effect of a technological "echo chamber"

There is a forum here dedicated to Agile Methodology, but I rarely see it being used on client sites, even with very technologically savvy companies.

Everytime I've attended a Java meeting there is a lot of talk and excitement about JSF, but again I have yet to encounter it in the wild.

This seems to happen a lot in the Java community. There is a lot of hype and excitement over a product, concept, etc. but then you don't see many instances of it being used in the real world. Not to say that they are worthless or not worth pursuing, but having a bunch of Java developers in a room talking about how great it is does not equate to actual use in the field.

I think Spring has a lot of potential and generates lots of excitement, but we currently have one project in the entire Dallas office where I work that is using it. None of our other clients are using it, have expressed interest in it, or even have any need for it. Yet every Java developer in our office is interested in it, including me. Reality versus hype is still running parallel to each other in our office.

That depends on which module we are talking about. I think Spring's DAO and AOP modules are heavily used. SpringMVC is hit or miss. Some of the other components are very niche.

The thing about a Spring specific forum is would we then have to break it up into all the different modules? That could be a whole forum all on it's own. Oh wait, that already exists.

It's been almost 4 years since I am loging in back to Java Ranch And it is nice to see that Java ranch has indeed started a seperate section for Spring.
