SpringSource, the company behind Spring, today announced that job requirements for Spring continue to soar, with Spring overtaking Enterprise JavaBeans as an enterprise job requirement.
As tracked by indeed.com, the demand for Spring as a job listing requirement has overtaken the legacy enterprise Java standard, EJB, in job listing requirements. A chart of the comparison is shown below
“There’s a landslide of Spring adoption, and the most accurate way to measure true adoption is in the demand for Spring developers and architects in the workforce,” said Rod Johnson, CEO of SpringSource. “Downloads reflect software evaluation as well as commercial use; job requirements show spending on projects of business importance. Overtaking EJB makes it clear that organizations are moving en masse to Spring, with thousands of Spring jobs listed every day. Spring is now at the forefront of a whole new application infrastructure, overtaking the stack one level at a time, removing bloat and inefficiencies.”
