30-day Public Review for Service Component Architecture Spring Component Implementation Specification Version 1.1

The OASIS Service Component Architecture / J (SCA-J) TC [1] members have produced a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted it for 30-day public review:

Service Component Architecture Spring Component Implementation Specification Version 1.1
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
23 May 2011

Specification Overview:
The SCA Spring component implementation specification specifies how the Spring Framework [SPRING] can be used with SCA. This specification extends the SCA Assembly Model by defining how a Spring Framework application context provides an implementation of an SCA component, including its various attributes such as services, references, and properties and how that application context is used in SCA as a component implementation type. The goals of this specification are:

– Coarse-grained integration: The integration with Spring is at the SCA Component level, where a Spring application context provides a component implementation, exposing services and using references via SCA. This means that a Spring application context defines the internal structure of an implementation.

– Start from SCA Component Type: Use of Spring Framework to implement any SCA Component that uses WSDL or Java interfaces to define services, possibly with some SCA specific extensions.

– Start from Spring context: Generation of an SCA Component from any Spring application context and use that component within an SCA assembly.

TC Description:
The SCA-J TC defines the Java ™ language binding for SCA components based on the SCA Assembly specification. The specifications include POJO/Spring client and implementation specification, a common annotations specification, an EJB binding specification and the J2EE integration specification.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts tomorrow, 29 June 2011 and ends 29 July 2011.
