<LI> Last year in April, I spoke at the <EM>Great Indian Developer Summit</EM> in 
Bangalore, India. The show was amazing and - I've just been made aware - some of the videos 
are starting to trickle online.  One talk I gave was <a href ="http://cloud.dzone.com/articles/spring-and-cloud-foundry"><EM>Spring and Cloud Foundry: a Marriage Made in Heaven</em></a>, which you can watch online. Unfortunately, they don't seem to also have the slides! 
     You can get the slides from my <a href="http://slideshare.net/joshlong">SlideShare.net profile page</a>. There are multiple permutations of this deck. Enjoy!

We released two new SpringOne2GX session replays, Automated Provisioning of Spring Apps to EC2 & VMware vCloud, and Addressing the Big Data Challenge with a Graph: Spring Data Neo4j. Did you miss Jan Machacek's fantastic talk, Akka Eye for the Spring Guy or Gal, from SpringOne2GX 2012? This video is also available on InfoQ! The Java Code Geeks blog has a nice dissection of the way Spring MVC's RequestMappingHandlerMapping class works. Roy Clarkson and Craig Walls' talk, Extending Spring MVC with Spring Mobile and JavaScript, is also now available on InfoQ! Want to take baby steps in learning core Spring 3.0? This blog's for you!
Brian's Java blog has a fairly exhaustive introduction to building a SOAP-based web service using Spring Web Services. Definitely worth a read if you need to build contract-first, document-literal SOAP webservices! Mark Reddy's written a nice blog on how to

use Spring's autowiring capability in conjunction with the @Qualifier annotation.

</li>   

The Kruders blog has an (I confess) very introductory look at how to setup a Spring MVC project with Log4j, but, sometimes, this is exactly what you need!

The Java Creed blog has a nice introduction to Spring's caching support as of 3.1.
