Allow for MessageSenders to use URI as result of UriTemplate
Support opaque URIs in UriComponentsBuilder
Remove deprecations in WS Adapter after upgrade to Spring 3.1.1
Make UriVariableTests work offline
In org.springframework.integration.ws.MarshallingWebServiceOutboundGateway the field 'uri' doesn't work the same way the 'deafultUri' works in org.springframework.ws.client.core.WebServiceTemplate
The linked issue SWS-795 describes the problem around URITemplate
Mark, can you take a look into Arjen's PR https://github.com/SpringSource/spring-framework/pull/148 and say here a comment about Spring Integration 3.0 and Spring Framework compatibility?
Will we support Spring 3.1 or just move to 3.2?
Does it makes sense for Juergen to backport of Arjen's improvement?
