See how Spring Python works with Jython

I recently completed a patch that replaces the amara library with python’s default elementTree library. As much as I like amara’s API, its C-extension basis was unacceptable. I just merged the patch into the trunk, and verified it works with Jython 2.5.1.FINAL. When Spring Python’s 1.1.0.M2 release comes out, we will be Jython-compatible. With this…


Welcome Sven Wilhelm!

I wanted to introduce another team member: Sven Wilhelm. We just granted him commit privileges this week. Sven has been using Spring Python as a core piece of his team’s system. He has been doing a bit of work on making Spring Python work with Jython (which I’m VERY interested in!), as well as working…


Welcome Dariusz Suchojad

I want to welcome our newest team member: Dariusz Suchojad. He has coded several patches in the past, including support for SQLServer. You will notice his name in the credits at the top of the reference docs (http://springpython.webfactional.com/1.1.x/reference/html/index.html). I submitted a request today that he be given commit rights to Spring Python’s code base. He…

I recently upgraded Spring Python’s project page from being a statically generated maven-based website to a dynamic drupal-based CMS.


VMware set to buy SpringSource

Rod Johnson posted a blog entry today that is also sweeping the twitterverse, indicating that they “have signed a definitive agreement with VMware, who will acquire SpringSource”.

(This was based on my earlier post The Case forAOP in Python) Okay, maybe its a little stiff, but you have to admit that putting this together on a…

Is Spring Python a framework or a library?

I was tracking some comments, and recently noticed a thread of discussion (in English) on a python mailing list. This is a follow-up to someone else posting about his discovery of Spring Python through the news announcement from SpringSource. (I appreciated that the person also caught on to my article defending the usage of AOP…


Is Spring Python notable enough to keep its wikipedia article?

Spring Python has had a wikipedia article for some time. I know, I wrote it. Today, someone has proposed deleting the article, citing that  the it doesn’t establish its notability. I encourage anyone interested to put in their $0.02. However, please do NOT go rabid. Whether you think this fits wikipedia’s criteria for an individual…
