SpringSource is introducing a Java application platform intended to alleviate the perceived “bloat” of legacy Java application servers.
The SpringSource Applications Platform, its beta unveiled today, is intended as a simpler alternative to the way in which Java applications are created. The platform is built on a combination of open-source technologies—Apache Tomcat, the Eclipse IDE, OSGi and the Spring Framework—that is designed to create a complete enterprise application stack for developing, deploying and maintaining Java applications, said Rod Johnson, CEO of SpringSource, the commercial sponsor of the Spring open-source framework.
The key to the SpringSource Application Platform’s appeal is its modular design, said Johnson.
