Spring/Hibernate engagements in the wild?
Can anyone provide some examples of the classic Spring/Hibernate stack in large scale engagements? I'm looking for sites which have high performance and load requirements and the like.
(Basically, one of our architects has been trying to argue that Spring and Hibernate are a poor choice of architecture for a site with high-performance requirements. While said architect has claimed he has a "gut feeling", I'd rather provide some positive counterexamples to refute this claim)
