Experience Springframework

Today was the big day with my first usage of the spring framework. And I am starting to like it very much. After reading "Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development" by Rod Johnson (Wrox, 2002) already a while ago, this was on my To-Do list, but up to now I never found the time to dig deeper into it and solve something with it.
For today I only used the JDBC package with stored procedures (Oracle) and it took me a while to get it all running (I even guess that it took me longer than plain JDBC code would have). But the time and effort was worth it. The mailinglist and the forum of the spring framework have been a useful ressource for removing some problems.
Now I think about using it for wiring up the application as well to gain some flexibility and to dig deeper into spring. The quality of the documentation and the framework itself are outstanding. Big compliments to the spring dream team.
I highly recommend J2EE developers to take a look at the spring framework for help in the solution domain of J2EE.
