The Spring Framework is an open source application framework for Java.  This framework has taken the Java software community by storm.  Its popularity continues to rise and expand to other development communities like .NET.  Spring provided the technology to develop everything from small, stand-alone applications to large complex, enterprise systems out of simple POJOs (plain old Java objects).

In this class, students are exposed to the light-weight Spring container, configuration, foundational API, and general Spring architecture.  Not just a class that focuses on theory, this course is loaded with practical labs and deals with configuration, maintenance and architectural issues.  After taking the class, developers will immediately be able to utilize the Spring Framework in their new or existing applications.
