Spring Python 0.6.0 has been released

P: n/a
Spring Python 0.6.0, the python offshoot of the Spring framework and
Spring Security, has been released (http://

for more details. BTW, if you click on the release notes link, there
is a report
pulled from JIRA (our new bug tracking software) showing the issues.
For more details,
you have to create an account at, and then
surf to Spring
Python. There, you can see it all nicely bundled at

Spring Python is moving forward in tremendous ways! Working with the
build team
in England, we have gotten things integrated with a continuous
integration server.
See, and then surf into
the Spring Python
parts to see our results. This is great! Just check out
for archived sample of the success of this project. If you look
closely, you may
notice that MySQL and PostGreSQL test cases have been commented out.
That is because
we don't have support for those RDBMS's on CI at this point in time.
be alarmed. I have run tests with and without thos test suites, and
the difference
in code coverage is 85% vs. 83%. Hopefully, in the future, we can get
an integration
environment that includes those tests as well.

This project focuses on quality. That is why I started this project
using TDD practices
and intend to proceed in this fashion. By integrating with CI, we now
have true
visibility into this. Another goal is to get code coverage metrics
captured. Tools
have been updated and show a measurement of 83% at this point in time.
I don't
know the industry average, but I'm willing to bet it is way below
that. I am
personally test infected, and I want to see the number higher.

The next immediate thing is to update Spring Python to support
CherryPy 3.1. We
are way behind and need to catch up. I have been working with Sylvain,
author of
"CherryPy Essentials: Rapid Python Web Application Development", and
are close to getting PetClinic and all the supporting components of
Spring Python
working. This is exciting because integrating with 3rd party web
frameworks opens
doors for Spring Python.

Have any ideas of where you think Spring Python can go? Send me a
