Come to this session to see Spring 3.1's new configuration enhancements in action.
Spring 3.1 offers a wealth of useful new features designed to ease application configuration. In this session you'll learn about the new Environment and PropertySource abstractions, bean definition profiles, Hibernate 4 support, and others. You'll learn why you should consider the new @Enable* annotations (a Java config alternative to XML namespaces) for your application and how to configure Web and even JPA applications without XML. We'll use a range of examples throughout to demonstrate the new capabilities.
