Matt, Based on the posts you've been making in the Spring forums (raising a lot of good issues and ideas, I might add :) ), can I assume that the upgrade to Spring 2.5 takes advantage of annotation-based controllers? Or is that something you're working on for a future release of AppFuse? Thanks! Peter

Peter - we're not using Spring MVC 2.5's annotations in AppFuse 2.x yet. I might consider it when ControllerClassNameHandlerMapping understands @Controller and defaults the URLs. I'd rather have controllers mapped by conventions than having to use @RequestMapping annotations everywhere.

AppFuse Light 1.8.1 will include Spring MVC's annotations. I hope to release it sometime this week.
