By just looking at the number of the posting in the category, one can conclude that Spring framework becomes less and less popular. Why?

hi S.

I just don't think this forum serves as a "popularity poll".

If you have a technical question, you will probably better off at http://forum.springframework.org/

I don't see anything wrong with his question. And I think his observations are relevant.

hi Bear,

reply in picture is definelty showing something, I can't say its really hard to understand for the intermediate user but for beginners (beacuse of less knowledge in it). I am aslo a beginner in this framework and I am really interested to hear (regarding the status of this framework) that what Bear experience say about it.

Thanks.

The picture I posted is meant to convey, in a humorous fashion (life's too short for contention), that many people (myself included) having tried out the big frameworks like Spring, and find them to be "Rube Goldberg" machines that in trying to make things "easier", merely end up making simple tasks more complicated than they need to be.

I have used Spring recently. It is getting lots of traction lately & being used extensively in almost all the projects i have worked recently.

One thing even big spring enthusiasts attest is "DO NOT GO AFTER REWRITING WHOLD OF ENTERPRISE SYSTEMS INTO SPRING". It is better off to do any refactorings one aspect at a time.

Once you have some comfort level Spring is very easy to use & very powerful. I would think a dose of training will also help you to kick start.

Normally I'd agree with Bear about frameworks. But there are modules of Spring I really like that I believe actually make things simpler, for me at least. Specifically the dao and transaction modules really simply my service layer. But that's the only bits of Spring I use.
