Primary Use Case: Spring is used as a J2EE framework for our Java applications server side. We are using MVC, Hibernate, and Security. • Improvements to My Organization: Spring has a speedy development process with a lightweight framework. We have found Spring is easy to use and learn.  • Valuable Features: Dependency Injection is one of the major features which makes our life easier using Spring.
