Spring Python 0.2.0 is released

P: n/a
Spring Python is an offshoot of the Java-based SpringFramework and
AcegiSecurityFramework, targeted for Python. Spring provides many
useful features, and I wanted those same features available when
working with Python.

The site is, with information
about source code, releases, and mailing lists.

The following features have been implemented.
* DatabaseTemplate - Reading from the database requires a
monotonous cycle of opening cursors, reading rows, and closing
cursors, along with exception handlers. With this template class, all
you need is the SQL query and row-handling function. Spring Python
does the rest.
* InversionOfControl - The idea is to decouple two classes at the
interface level. This lets you build many reusable parts in your
software, and your whole application becomes more pluggable.
* AspectOrientedProgramming - Spring Python provides great ways to
wrap advice around objects. It is utilized for remoting. Another use
is for debug tracers and performance tracing.
* DistributedRemoting - It is easy to convert your local
application into a distributed one. If you have already built your
client and server pieces using the IoC container, then going from
local to distributed is just a configuration change.
* PetClinic - A nice sample web application has been built
utilizing CherryPy as the web container. Go check it out for an
example of how to use this framework.
* ApplicationSecurity - Plugin security interceptors to lock down
access to your methods, utilizing both authentication and domain
* SpringWiki - Wikis are powerful ways to store and manage
content, so we created a simple one as a demo!

You have managed to peak my interest. I'll be dabbling with this in the next
few hours. This looks very promising, keep up the good work.

I have managed to update the site documentation on ApplicationSecurity
(the newer module in this release). Took me awhile, and one time I
accidentally browsed to another site and lost what I had started.
Well, it is in there now at http://springpython.python-hosting.c...cationSecurity

I think the word you're after here is "pique"
(although I suppose "peak" kind of makes sense
as well:-).
