Most people agree that the future of computing is in the cloud. However, what does that imply about how you develop or migrate existing applications to the new environment? Leveraging the lightweight and portable Spring framework appears to be a requirement to creating such applications. However, is that enough? Furthermore, is the cloud of the future in your private data center or in the public infrastructure? Will nirvana be achieved when we create the hybrid cloud to capture the best of both private and public clouds?
