Earlier this year your humble TSS.NET reporter met with Interface21’s Mark Pollack in a noisy press room just off the show floor at Microsoft TechEd 2007 in Orlando, Fla. As a major steward of Spring.NET, Pollack is at the center of some of the more interesting interop activity these days. TheServerSide Interoperability blog now makes a discussion with Pollack available in MP3 podcast format.
He talks about the Spring framework. Spring.NET is a .NET implementation of said framework that leverages years of work on a Java implementation of Spring that supports Aspect-Oriented (AOP) practices. Thus, Pollack is an individual whose expertise spans multiple platforms.
This framework may find a special role in mixed Java-.NET enterprises. With the .NET version of Spring, data access abstraction methods can extend beyond the Java platform, Pollack said. In effect, some .NET and Java developers may find a common ground, and this may reduce the inevitable ‘reinventing of the wheel’ common in many two-platform IT shops.
Keep tuned, the yearly Spring conference is set for December.
