Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning Spring Programming Tutorial," an introductory course designed for Java developers interested in learning to work with the Spring cluster of projects designed to facilitate various aspects of Java development.

Spring is a collection of open source projects focused on addressing issues programmers encounter when developing in Java. Spring encompasses a large variety of projects, but these projects rely on a core set of utilities known as the Spring Framework.

Infinite Skills' "Learning Spring Programming" is designed to provide Java developers with a solid basis in working with Spring by teaching the essential features of the basic framework, including the inversion of control (IOC) container, data access, and Spring Web MVC.

Course author Kevin Bowersox is a web application developer currently working at the NAVSUP Business Systems Center, where he develops J2EE applications that support logistics and supply chain operations for the US Navy and Department of Defense. He began coding at age 14, and has spent the last seven years working primarily in Java development. His wide range of proficiencies include CSS, HTML, Java, Javascript, SQL, and XML, along with frameworks such as Hibernate, JQuery, and Spring, among others.

Bowersox begins by explaining inversion of control in Spring, explaining the frameworks approach to dependency injection, and looking at the benefits of the Spring IOC container.

The course then explains Spring Beans, how Spring manages objects within the IOC container, looking at constructor injection, setter injection, bean instantation, and auto-wiring with XML, among other topics.

The course then explains how to configure the IOC container, looking at annotation configuration, auto-wiring with annotations, and more.

Subsequent chapters explain Java configuration, working with data in Spring, particularly its relationship with MySQL, and finally, configuring Spring MVC.

"A while back, I attended a Spring training session and a conference on Spring, and through my interactions there, I got very interested in the project as a way to take the headaches out of a lot of common coding tasks," Bowersox says. "I found that the people using Spring were really interested in writing good code, and that their projects were very innovative."

"The bottom line is that Spring can help you become a better developer. You're going to see your code become more organized, more modular, and more maintainable. Spring will help you focus on business logic, and worry less with plumbing code and error handling. Your development will become faster and cleaner."
