first.. is this the best place to ask a dev question? I dislike adding issues in Github and not sure where else to ask..
second.. Any plans to update the version of spring being used? its quite old (3.0.5 was release in October of 2010)...
third. Do you have any tests for Spring MVC controllers? In the Web Module I see a couple of servlet tests.. I see a bunch of DAO and Service tests in Core module.. but don't see any for Spring MVC Controllers.. Just spent the better part of a day trying to add one but can't seem to nail down loading your application context.. its definitely exposing my "ran away from Java 5 years ago" rustiness with Java and Spring.. was hoping there was something there (especially given you do have a bunch of controllers.. there should be some tests somewhere)..
