It has been interesting to follow the recent communications made by Rod Johnson as you can transparently read SpringSource's strategy.

Max and I will be at JavaPolis next week. I don't know what Max is doing there but I will talk about Hibernate Search and JSR-303 Bean Validation, both talks on Thursday the 13th.
