Welcome back, Developing a Web Application in Java/J2EE is really really good, there are so many frameworks available out there. So today, in this article, let’s discuss one of the popular Java framework, Spring MVC and MyBatis/iBatis, using these two frameworks let’s create complete CRUD application

MyBatis is a Java persistence framework that couples objects with stored procedures or SQL statements using an XML descriptor or annotations. MyBatis is free software that is distributed under the Apache License 2.0. MyBatis is a fork of iBATIS 3.0 and is maintained by a team that includes the original creators of iBATIS.

The Spring Framework is an application framework and inversion of control container for the Java platform. The framework’s core features can be used by any Java application, but there are extensions for building web applications on top of the Java EE (Enterprise Edition) platform. Although the framework does not impose any specific programming model, it has become popular in the Java community as an addition to, or even replacement for the Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) model. The Spring Framework is open source.
