2.1. Stack of TERASOLUNA Server Framework for Java (5.x)

2.1.1. Summary of Software Framework of TERASOLUNA Server Framework for Java (5.x)

Software Framework being used in TERASOLUNA Server Framework for Java (5.x) is not a proprietary Framework but a combination of various OSS technologies around Spring Framework.

../_images/introduction-software-framework.png

2.1.2. Main Structural Elements of Software Framework

Libraries which constitute TERASOLUNA Server Framework for Java (5.x) are as follows:

../_images/introduction-software-stack.png

2.1.2.1. DI Container

Spring Framework is used as DI Container.

2.1.2.2. MVC Framework

Spring MVC is used as Web MVC Framework.

2.1.2.3. O/R Mapper

This guideline assumes the use of any one of the below.

Note

To be precise MyBatis is a “SQL Mapper”, but it is classified as “O/R Mapper” in this guidelines.

Warning

Every project must not adopt JPA. Use of JPA is difficult for situations in which the table design is, “most of the tables are not normalized” or ”the number of columns in the table are too many”.

Furthermore, this guideline does not explain the basic usage of JPA. Hence, it is pre-requisite to have JPA experience people in the team.

2.1.2.4. View

JSP is used as View.

Use the following to standardize the view layout.

2.1.2.5. Security

Spring Security is used as the framework for Authentication and Authorization.

Tip

In addition to providing a mechanism of authentication and authorization in Spring Security 3.2, the mechanism has been enhanced to protect a Web application from malicious attackers.

For mechanism to protect Web applications from malicious attackers, Refer,

2.1.2.6. Validation

2.1.2.7. Logging

  • The SLF4J API is used for Logger.
    • The Logback API is used for implementation of Logger.

2.1.3. OSS Versions

List of OSS being used in version 5.4.1.RELEASE.

Tip

From version 5.0.0.RELEASE onwards, adopted the mechanism of importing <dependencyManagement> of Spring IO platform.

By importing the <dependencyManagement> of Spring IO platform,

  • Spring Framework offering library
  • Spring Framework dependent OSS library
  • Spring Framework compatible OSS library

dependencies resolved and OSS version to be used in the TERASOLUNA Server Framework for Java (5.x) is following the rule of Spring IO platform definition.

Furthermore, Spring IO platform version is Brussels-SR5 specified in version 5.4.1.RELEASE.
