Spring is becoming the de facto framework for enterprise Java development. In this BOF we will talk about the Spring open source product portfolio and discuss the touch points between Eclipse and Spring ranging from server-side OSGi applications based on Spring Dynamic Modules and Equinox to development tools for Spring applications on the Eclipse platform. We will then discuss the landscape of both open source technologies, such as the Spring Framework, Spring IDE, Mylyn and their integrations as well as the commercial offerings that build on them.

Adrian Colyer is the CTO of SpringSource, the company behind the Spring Framework. A member of the Eclipse Architecture Council and the OSGi Alliance Enterprise Expert Group, Adrian founded the "Spring Dynamic Modules for OSGi Service Platforms" project (formerly known as "Spring OSGi") in 2006. In addition to OSGi, Adrian is well known for his contributions to AspectJ and to the Spring Framework. In 2004 Adrian was voted one of the top 100 young innovators in the world by MIT Technology Review. He's not getting any younger, but he is still innovating...

Christian joined SpringSource, the company behind the popular Spring Framework, in 2008 as a Senior Software Engineer and is a member of the tools team based in Vancouver. Since 2004 Christian is the lead of the Spring IDE (http://springide.org) open source project that provides development tools for the Spring Portfolio.
 
He has been developing Java enterprise applications since 1997. During this time, Christian designed complex software architectures with a focus on multi-tiered, web-based, client-server applications using enterprise Java technologies and the Spring Framework.

Prior to joining SpringSource, Christian worked as consultant and project manager for one of the leading global technology consulting firms in the financial sector in central Europe.

Mik Kersten is the President and CTO of Tasktop Technologies, lead of the Eclipse Mylyn project, committer on the AspectJ project, and member of the Eclipse Architecture Council. While a research scientist at Xerox PARC, Mik implemented the first aspect-oriented programming tool support with AspectJ plug-ins for JBuilder, NetBeans, Visual Studio, and Emacs. He then created Mylyn and the Task-Focused Interface technology while completing his PhD at the University of British Columbia. Mik's passion is building Eclipse-based tools that offload our brains and make it easier to get creative work done.
