"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Spring is a lighter MVC architecture based framework which can be used for developing J2EE applications. However, it is just a framework available for use - it is not yet a Java EE standard or specification, and it cannot do everything that all EJBs can do (e.g., Message Driven Beans).
