Fix test

The rework of 314b069 in a7fec6a has created a lazy proxy to make sure
that the need for an exception cache resolver come as late as possible.

Unfortunately, the test that was only failing on CI because of an early
lookup has not been updated accordingly. This is now the case.

Spring Framework

The Spring Framework provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications -- on any kind of deployment platform. A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.

The framework also serves as the foundation for Spring Integration, Spring Batch and the rest of the Spring family of projects. Browse the repositories under the Spring organization on GitHub for a full list.

Downloading Artifacts

See downloading Spring artifacts for Maven repository information. Unable to use Maven or other transitive dependency management tools? See building a distribution with dependencies.


See the current Javadoc and reference docs.

Getting Support

Check out the spring tags on Stack Overflow. Commercial support is available too.

Issue Tracking

Report issues via the Spring Framework JIRA. Understand our issue management process by reading about the lifecycle of an issue. Think you've found a bug? Please consider submitting a reproduction project via the spring-framework-issues GitHub repository. The readme there provides simple step-by-step instructions.

Building from Source

The Spring Framework uses a Gradle-based build system. In the instructions below, ./gradlew is invoked from the root of the source tree and serves as a cross-platform, self-contained bootstrap mechanism for the build.


Git and JDK 8 update 20 or later

Be sure that your JAVA_HOME environment variable points to the jdk1.8.0 folder extracted from the JDK download.

Check out sources

git clone

Import sources into your IDE

Run ./ or read as appropriate.

Note: Per the prerequisites above, ensure that you have JDK 8 configured properly in your IDE.

Install all spring-* jars into your local Maven cache

./gradlew install

Compile and test; build all jars, distribution zips, and docs

./gradlew build

... and discover more commands with ./gradlew tasks. See also the Gradle build and release FAQ.


Pull requests are welcome; see the contributor guidelines for details.
