Central polls page
UPDATE: polls have been moved to www.springframework.org. We will continue to improve these kinds of features to allow you to continue telling us what you'd like to see in Spring. Because we wanted even more feedback, also from people not registered to the forum, we decided to move the polls to www.springframework.org. For now, this means no background info for new polls anymore (we haven't yet discovered a way to add links to poll answers or something like that), but this will be improved later on.
To get a feel for what parts of the Spring Framework you're using, from now on, we will be hosting a series of polls on the forum. Each poll will not only ask you a very simple (multiple choice) question, but also give you some insight into the techniques the poll is about. If you have a good idea for a poll, just send me a private message. Discussions about the poll itself can be done in the comments of course.
Last but not least, we very much value your feedback and will be using all of it throughout the further development of the Spring Framework. So we appreciate it a lot if you could take the time to fill out polls!

I just wanted to say I really think this is a great idea! I'm really interested what polls you've got lined up and what people have to say.

Thanks Karl, that's good to hear.
If you have any suggestions for polls that might cause a little discussion, they're always welcome .

Poll topic suggestions
I think the polls are a great idea!
Here's a first shot at a list of general (perhaps not so provocative) topics that could be used for polls:

- validation: custom Validators, Commons Validator, Bean Validation (Spring Modules), Valang, Hibernate Validator, etc.
- Deployment environment: Tomcat stand-alone, Resin, JBoss, BEA, WebSphere, etc.
- Ajax integration: custom/in-house code, YUI, Dojo, DWR, Backbase, JSON-RPC, etc.
Like I mentioned, these might not necessarily lead to great, in-depth discussions; however, I'd be very interested to see what members of the Spring community are using the most in these categories.

I've always got suggestions . Out of interest was there a plan here e.g. are you working through the reference manual or is it just random things?

I'd like to see a poll on "Which part of Spring do you dislike more?". It would be very useful to improve all framework.
My two cents in a very bad English....

it can sound silly, but...
what about of best practices with spring?
example codes, templates , suggestion etc etc
integration with other frameworks
what tools are recommend (xdoclet,myeclipse,appfuse.. etc etc)
ask for some people (voluntaries), share basic examples, maybe traduction for other languages etc etc
or a simple question , why work you with Spring?
when work you with Spring/J2EE both or alone .... ?

Here's an example of a poll I'd like to see in future:
Q:"Which is the biggest problem you have to deal with when you use Spring?"
- Manage the complexity of XML-based configuration files
- Performance issues...
- Create data access layer
- Lack of code generation tools for Spring
- I haven't any problem at all....
