From framework to platform
07/14/2014 at 09:33:33
When I started my career as a Java developer close to 10 years ago, the industry is going through a revolutionary change. Spring framework, which was released in 2003, was quickly gaining ground and became a serious challenger to the bulky J2EE platform. Having gone through the transition time, I quickly found myself in favour of Spring framework instead of J2EE platform, even the earlier versions of Spring are very tedious to declare beans. What happened next is the revamping of J2EE standard, which was later renamed to JEE. Still, dominating of this era is the use of opensource framework over the platform proposed by Sun. This practice gives developers full control over the technologies they used but inflating the deployment size. Slowly, when cloud application become the norm for modern applications, I observed the trend of moving the infrastructure service from framework to platform again. However, this time, it is not motivated by Cloud application.
