A number of improvements in the upcoming Spring Framework 3.0.4 release need to be integrated into Roo scaffolded MVC applications:
- Spring DispatcherServlet can now mapped to / in the web.xml
- thereby we can remove the URL rewriter dependency, affecting all front-ends such as Spring MVC / JSP, GWT and Flex
- A new Resource handler has been integrated into SFW 3.0.4 (based on the ResourceServlet used by Spring JS)
- Update to Spring JS (as part of the Spring Web Flow 2.1 release) now uses Dojo 1.4.3
As part of this work Roo trunk will temporarily use Spring Framework 3.0.4.BUILD-SNAPSHOT until SWF 3.0.4 is made public in the maven repos.
