Does Spring Framework have features for automatically generating assets such as compressed and minified CSS stylesheets or JavaScripts, or image thumbnails?

When writing CSS stylesheets, I like to use Compass and Sass as these technologies greatly assist in reducing boilerplate CSS. Does Spring Framework support Compass and/or Sass, or perhaps an alternative that can be templated as a view?

Yes and no.

Spring 4.1 introduced a new set of resource resolvers and transformers. It doesn't directly address your concerns (Sass to CSS or Compass to CSS), but it provides the abstractions such that you could implement those yourself. It's too new to have been included in Spring in Action 4, but you can read a blog article about it at https://spring.io/blog/2014/07/24/spring-framework-4-1-handling-static-web-resources.

If we don't do the shopping, we won't have anything for dinner. And I've invited this tiny ad:
