Spring is an application framework and inversion of control container for java platform. Java application can use framework’s core features but there are extensions for building web application on top of java EE platform. This framework doesn’t impose any specific programming model.
Spring has relevance to the mobile application development company, spring allows usage of Framework in an android environment. Using REST Template , spring framework enable support for integrating spring social functionality into android apps.
Inversion of control and dependency injection: These are basically design patterns used to remove dependency injection from code. They make the code easier to test & maintain.
Advantages of dependency injection:
- They make the code loosely coupled.
- Easy to test code
Here are some advantages of spring framework for mobile industry:
Predefined templates: Framework provides templates for Hibernate, JPA technologies etc. So no need to write too much code. What spring does is? It hides basic steps of these technologies.
Suppose in JdbcTemplate we don’t need to write code for exception handling, creating connection, creating statement, committing transaction, closing connection etc. we just need to write code for executing query.
- Loose coupling: All spring applications are loosely coupled because of dependency injection.
- Easy to test: Spring framework don’t require server to test because dependency injection makes easier to test the application.
- Light weight: This framework is light weight because of its POJO implementation. Programmers don’t inherit any class or implement any interface.
- Fast development: Dependency injection feature of spring framework makes makes java development fast.
- Powerful abstraction: It provides powerful abstraction JavaEE specifications such as JMS, JDBC, JPA and JTA.
- Declarative support: Spring provides declarative support for caching, validations, transactions & formatting.
All these features are available in spring platform which makes it compatible for all java applications. If you run a business, don’t forget to try spring application. Hire Seasia Infotech experts to build spring application for you.
