Spring is coming to the now-verdant hills of San Jose. Not only has the season come to the Diablo range of mountains that borders our fair city, but the framework popularized by Interface21 and Rod Johnson is showing up in a big way as well. Spring is being broadly used in WebLogic customer sites. As I travel around to customer sites, it seemingly comes up everywhere. I have seen it in large government agencies, financial companies, and internet companies. I have seen it used by small consultancies and the large systems integrators.
