Subject RE: Hibernate
Date Thu, 28 Jun 2012 23:00:04 GMT
A couple of points,

1. Spring is under Apache license
2. Spring provides pretty good JDBC wrapper like SimpleJdbcTemplate to free developers from
managing DB connections and JDBC prepared statements (We used to run into memory leaking issues
with our home-grown JDBC wrapper)
3. Transaction management
4. Spring is open and easy to plug in 3rd party ORM modules
5. You also get Spring AOP for free.
