Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring. As usual, we've got a lot to look at, so, without further ado...
- GigaOM has a nice roundup of some of the exciting and important tools in the big-data ecosystem right now. There are many different tools serving different segments of the use cases, and of course Spring Data is mentioned in there, too!
- The ODBMS Industry Watch blog and professor Roberto V. Zicari has a nice interview with Spring ninja David Turanski on Spring Data. Definitely a good read!
- Robin Varghese has put together a straight-forward blog on sending email with dynamic templates driven by Velocity. This seems to be a common use case, and it's always good to find more up-to-date resources. Many people will no doubt have found Matt Raible's post from 9 years ago on the same subject, which is also very illustrative but, alas, a little outdated. Nice to see this more updated approach to an old classic!
- Hey, this is interesting! Did you guys know there was a Spring for Delphi (also, I guess, referred to as Spring4D)? Me either... @_@ With that in mind, I found this post introducing some of the collection libraries that seem both very friendly and powerful in Spring for Delphi. Cool!
- Eren Av?aro?ullar? has a nice post showing how to use dynamic languages (in particular, Groovy) with Spring.
- Dinesh Rajput has put together a blog introducing some of the features unique to the Spring Batch 2.x generation, which - while Spring Batch 2.x has been out for years - is always worth a look!
The Java all and Sundry blog has a nice writeup on a piece of Spring MVC's machinery, the
- Alex Soto's back, this time with a post on unit testing Spring Data MongoDB with NoSQL Unit! Cool.
- The Java Success blog has a post introducing some of the landscape for enterprise integration solutions in the JVM community, and demonstrating some of the concepts of enterprise integration, specifically, with Spring Integration.
- The Develop and Conquer blog has a nice example with some trickery to inject a
java.util.Datevalue using the Spring Expression language and the
@Valueannotation. Very cool!
- Abhijit Ghosh put together a decent SpringMVC-based HelloWorld application using Tomcat, Maven, Eclipse (m2e).
