We have begun implementation of two new exciting Spring Modules! The first one will be the Service Orchestration module and the second one will be Spring AJAX
The SO module will allow the developers to create a workflow-style structure, where the transitions carry business logic. In the transitions — I’m sure you’ll forgive me for the slightly non-technical description — you will be able to call any number of services; naturally, the transition will be able to participate in a JTA transaction.
This is a buzz-word like no other, but it is still very clumsy to create rich applications using the Spring Framework. We propose to create a module that will allow declarative AJAX handling code. The handling code will work with AjaxSessions and JsonViews by default, but there will be nothing stopping you from creating much more complex AJAX handling structures. Along with the Java-side support, we will give you JSP tag libraries to handle all mundane AJAX code.
