  4. Our pal Boris Lam is back, this time with two posts on how to use Spring Data MongoDB and JSF together.

  6. Cool demonstration: Spring Insight plugins for Spring Integration and RabbitMQ.
  7. The syntx blog has a nice post on how to add HTTP Basic authentication using Spring Security to Spring MVC-secured resources.
  8. Krishna's Blog has a nice post introducing unit-testing the Spring Security layer with the InMemoryDaoImpl.
  9. You know, I was looking for something like this just the other day! Mark's Blog has a nice post on the workflow of the various objects in servicing an incoming HTTP request in Spring MVC. Is this stuff you could easily figure out by sticking a breakpoint in a controller and just looking at the call stack? Sure. But it's also stuff that's very convenient to reference in a pinch and it's nice to see it all laid out in order with a little bit of narrative.
  10. The Dinesh on Java blog has a nice post on how to setup Spring Security.
  11. The Lucky Ryan blog has a really à propos post on migrating XML-based Spring MVC configuration to the Java and annotation centric alternative.
  12. The Java Code Geeks blog has a very nice post on exception handling when dealing with REST services
  13. Our pal Roger Hughes is back, this time with a nice writeup of a few of the various lifecycle techniques for Spring beans.
  14. The CommonJ blog has a nice post on passing request parameters to Spring MVC from JavaScript. This one is faintly related to Spring MVC, but close enough! :)
