Have you tried out Avalon yet? Have a success story you want to share? If so, edit this page and post it below!
I recently did a rewrite of a small application and ported it over to Avalon. The app had undergone several revisions and was starting to get crufty. I knew it would work better under Avalon, but the results surprised me: - The complete rewrite took under two weeks. The last major revision took over a month - Due to using Avalon's configuration package, 38 classes were eliminated. (they had been generated with exolab's castor product) - Originally the application had 11736 lines of code, 7863 lines were from the castor generated classes, leaving 3873 lines of original code - After Avalonization, the entire project had only 1686 lines of code, cutting the original size in HALF! - Several new features were added and the entire design updated to be more modular - We even got a small performance speed boost This is another reason why Avalon rocks! Thanks again guys! - jaaron (06/09/2003)
I recently implemented Avalons IoC framework for my Bug Tracker. I was able to clean up my code by removing all those nasty singletons and factory classes
