Spring Java Development Platform Gets Scalability Boost

The SpringSource, GigaSpaces partnership will allow Java developers to build scalable software without worrying how to incorporate heavy traffic features into their application.

SpringSource, supplier of an easy to use, Java development framework, would like to make Spring-based flexible programming easier to scale upward.

The company said Tuesday that it is teaming up with GigaSpaces in a technology partnership to make Spring Framework work inside GigaSpaces eXtreme Application Platform.

GigaSpaces offers what it describes as a scalable application server whose services may expand in step with the addition of hardware to the cluster on which it's running. GigaSpaces XAP has the ability to cache data, multiply messaging capacity and increase application server services to meet rising traffic.

The technology partnership will allow Java developers using Spring to build highly scalable software without worrying about how to incorporate heavy traffic features into their application, said Greg Schott, SpringSource VP of marketing.

SpringSource recently purchased Covalent Technologies for its technical expertise in Apache Web Server and Apache Tomcat, a lightweight Java Servlet managing piece of middleware. Apache Tomcat and Web Server are frequently used with Spring Framework applications. The addition of the GigaSpaces partnership means another piece of specialized middleware will work for Spring developers, opening a new user group, said Schott.

"GigaSpaces will make the integration between the two seamless for the end user [developer]," said Schott in an interview. Spring Framework running inside GigaSpaces will have all the usual functionality of Spring, he said.
