Spring Scala project is here in order to bring the power of Spring framework in Scala. It combines the best of two worlds, Spring framework and Scala. Using a pure Java framework like Spring in Scala would feel awkward, so Spring Scala was introduced as a first-class citizen.
Standard operations apply such as wiring up beans in XML (declaratively) and wiring up beans in Scala (programmatically). Additionally, Spring templates can be used in Scala in order to facilitate any sort of data access, or resource handling in general.
As of availability, a first milestone of Spring Scala is available for download here.
This seems totally cool and definitely worth a try. You can find more information and detailed examples in the official announcement page.
