Next update of rapid app development tool arrives

Spring Roo 1.2.0 delivers first release candidate

The SpringSource team may have been hibernating for a few months but with good reason. Today they certainly had a spring in their step, publishing the first release candidate of the next iteration of their rapid application development tool.

Spring Roo, the open source tool received a big update and a nitrous charge back in September but after listening to community feedback, the team were only happy to oblige with their user's request. The two main updates are multi-module Maven project support and PrimeFaces/JSF 2.0.

They've also listened the community's desire for more annotation flexibility - creating the new @RooJpaEntity and replacing the old @Rooentity with @RooJpaActiveRecord. SpringSource heartily encourage testers and feedback for RC1 in hope of seeing a full release in the near future.

Keep up to date with any latest updates via their Twitter account - @springroo
