Picture 4.pngI have reached a new Milestone. More than three years ago I blogged about a framework called Rome. This is a framework that enables you to create Rss feeds without to much hassle. I found the framework and created a base class that was put into springmodules. This blogpost Creating-an-rss-feed-with-spring-and-Rome explains what I have done.

A few weeks a go I was at Denmark and I talked to Arjen Poutsma. He told me my classes were going to be used in the springframework. Looking back at these classes they have been changed a lot. Still I am proud to have made a contribution to a framework that is used so often.

When you are going to use Springframework version 3, have a look at these classes:

  • org.springframework.web.servlet.view.feed.AbstractAtomFeedView
  • org.springframework.web.servlet.view.feed.AbstractRssFeedView
  • org.springframework.web.servlet.view.feed.AbstractFeedView

See you next time …

    Heh.

    Actually, I wrote my own version first, only to find out that yours in spring modules. It seemed only fair to add the author tags, as the code was surprisingly similar :)

    I saw this as part of the spring-framework fisheye feed. I really like this! What else do you have up your sleeve?
