    Question Spring Portfolio and Wind


    First Question:
    Below is a snippet from a technical document of Spring Framework:

    The Spring Expression Language (SpEL for short) is a powerful expression language that supports
    querying and manipulating an object graph at runtime. The language syntax is similar to Unified EL but
    offers additional features, most notably method invocation and basic string templating functionality.
    While there are several other Java expression languages available, OGNL, MVEL, and JBoss EL, to
    name a few, the Spring Expression Language was created to provide the Spring community with a single
    well supported expression language that can be used across all the products in the Spring portfolio.
    Its language features are driven by the requirements of the projects in the Spring portfolio, including
    tooling requirements for code completion support within the eclipse based Spring Tool Suite. That said,
    SpEL is based on a technology agnostic API allowing other expression language implementations to
    be integrated should the need arise.

    What is the exact meaning of portfolio?
    I found one of the meaning of portfolio from Oxford is: "the range of products or services offered by a particular company or organization", but it seems can not express the exact meaning.

    Second Question:
    About the pronunciation of "wind":

    In Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary 8th Edition, the pronunciation of "wind" is: "waind",
    In Longman DOCE 5th edition, the pronunciation of "wind" is: "wind",

    It sounds a little difference between Oxford and Longman. Which is correct? The Oxford pronunciation sounds like "wine" and it always makes me confusing.

    Re: Spring Portfolio and Wind

    The Oxford definition is exact. "The Spring Portfolio" means the range of products and services offered by the Spring corporation.
