A paper that introduces developers to Blossom, Magnolia's Spring module
The Spring Framework is the de facto standard programming model for enterprise Java applications, used by two-thirds of all Java developers. Blossom is a Magnolia module that allows developers to use the Spring Framework and Spring coding idioms with Magnolia. It adds a full set of enterprise content management features to Spring developers' existing toolkit, allowing them to rapidly deploy integrated solutions encompassing multiple back-end business systems.
This paper introduces Blossom and explains how it enables developers to combine all the benefits of the Spring programming model with the built-in versioning, workflow, staging and security features from Magnolia.
