Have you seen the announcement that our CEO Rod Johnson has been elected to the JCP Executive Committee? If not you can read the press release here.

So, what is the relevance? I think a couple of points here:

In the land of Giants
SpringSource has been named to the JCP’s Executive Committee joining such industry giants as SAP, IBM, Ericsson, Nokia and Philips.  For years, SpringSource has been bringing change to the JCP from the outside.  Now, we have the opportunity to bring change from the inside out.

Thought leadership and validation
SpringSource has revolutionized enterprise Java and become a very influential thought leader in the market.  In fact, this one of the major reasons for me to join SpringSource beginning this year. The election to the JCP validates the important role SpringSource plays in enterprise Java and demonstrates that SpringSource is leading the evolution of enterprise standards. 

The importance of standards
The JCP sets the standards in enterprise Java and standards provide our customers with assurances against vendor lock-in. SpringSource’s proven innovation and demonstrated understanding of how to operate in a open development system will bring a fresh light to the Java Community Process and help make the standards process more transparent and accessible for end users.


We recently released our dm Server, the modular, OSGi based Java server and I received a lot of questions on what OSGi really is. If you are having this same questions, please have a look at a presentation of our CTO Adrian Colyer and Costin Leau at Parleys to learn how at SpringSource look at OSGi. Run it, click it!

Are you struggling to diagnose and solve application performance issues?

Would greater modularity, hot deploy/undeploy, versioning and code reuse help you?

Are you looking for an easier way to track and repair issues in test and production?

Are you unsure that the Spring code you write follows industry best practices?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, join SpringSource, the company behind Spring, the de facto standard in enterprise Java, for a webinar outlining ways to build, run and manage Spring-powered enterprise applications more productively, securely and with the greatest uptime.
In this webinar, SpringSource co-founder and original Spring contributor Colin Sampaleanu will present a  hands-on overview of SpringSource Enterprise, which includes certified, tested and indemnified software coupled with advanced production and development capabilities and support.  In this webinar, you will learn:
  • Ways to monitor and manage the Spring framework and dm server
  • Tools available to analyze runtime errors and automatically lookup resolutions






  • How to “open the black box” to monitor your Spring-powered applications more effectively
  • Development tools to inspect and review Spring code
