Better, Faster, Lighter Java
Bruce A. Tate, Justin Gehtland - O'Reilly Media, 06/2004
In 'Better, Faster, Lighter Java' the authors argue that the old heavyweight architectures are unwieldy, complicated, and contribute to slow and buggy application code. As an alternative means for building better applications, the authors present two "lightweight" open source architectures: Hibernate - a persistence framework that does its job with a minimal API and gets out of the way - and Spring - a container that's not invasive, heavy or complicated.
