public interface Spring4limits
If you absolutely need to use Java 16+, you can remove Spring from the Smart GWT server by removing all of the Spring JARs from your WEB-INF/lib server directory:
and then removing the Spring configuration from your WEB-INF/web.xml:
<!-- standard spring configuration --> <context-param> <param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name> <param-value>/WEB-INF/applicationContext.xml</param-value> </context-param> <listener> <listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class> </listener>Note that Spring 5, which is compatible with JDK 16+, can be used in your application. You just can't use
Smart GWT's built-in Spring support, such as the "spring:" DMI target.
