In this post we are going to talk a little bit about how to integrate Groovy (or another Scripting language like JRuby or BeanShell) within a Spring project. Achiving that is not really complicated, the only thing you need to do is add your Groovy scripts with a special schema within your application context. The example I am going to show you is uploaded to my Github account. You can find it right here.

In the following post we are going to talk about the Spring MVC project. But before that I have been thinking about writing some other posts about the Spring framework. I’m going to talk about some SpringSource projects such as Spring MVC, Spring Web Flow, Spring Security (O Auth) or Spring Faces to name a few. Moreover I’m planning to start writing about continuous integration and testing with (Hudson / Jenkins, Sonar, Cobertura, Selenium, Checkstyles, PMD, …). I’d also like write about Cloud Computing , as a novice developer in this particular subject, analyzing some frameworks and tools such as the Google App Engine (GAE) or Micro Cloud Foundry. But there is much left to all I have just mentioned so …. it is time to start with Spring MVC.

En el siguiente post vamos a hablar un poco de Spring MVC. Pero antes comentar que tengo pensado hacer una serie de post (el primero es este) sobre Spring. En concreto intentaré hablar un poco de proyecto de SpringSource como Spring MVC, Spring Web Flow, Spring Security (O Auth) ó Spring Faces. Además voy a hablar un poco de desarrollo e integración continua y pruebas (Hudson / Jenkins, Sonar, Cobertura, Selenium, Checkstyles, PMD, …). También me gustaría tratar temas de Cloud Computing , siempre como absoluto novato en la materia, analizando herramientas como Google App Engine (GAE) ó Micro Cloud Foundry. Pero para ello todavía queda …. así que empezaré con Spring MVC.
