We look at basic Spring support for JPA, Spring Boot’s auto-configuration and supported configuration properties, mapped superclasses, auditing (using Spring Data’s JPA auditing facility) and journaling (using the Hibernate Envers project and Spring Data Envers).

Hi Spring fans! In this installment of Spring Tips we look at the Spring support for the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API. Spring’s support for JDBC is one of many reasons a lot of people first started using Spring 15+ years ago! If you aren’t committed to a full-blown ORM and/or want to leverage the full power of JDBC, then this video is for you!

Hi Spring fans! Whew! What a wild week it’s been! I landed in Kiev, Ukraine, last Thursday to present at the epic JEEConf in beautiful Kiev. Then, this weekend it was off to Dublin, Ireland and Belfast, North Ireland, where I had the privilege of speaking to some of the amazing Pivotal customers (like Liberty). I concluded today here in Belfast and tomorrow it’s off to bella Barcelona, Spain for the Spring I/O conference.
As usual, it’s been a crazy awesome week in the Spring community so without further ado let’s get to it!
It feels like SpringOne Platform was only yesterday, and I’m so excited by what’s coming in September! It’s yet another excuse to chat, exchange, share, have a drink, and enjoy quality time with the Spring and Reactor communities, contributors and users alike.
I’ll tell you a secret: as the project Reactor lead, this is one of my favorite places to capture amazing feedback and translate it into pull requests. I like spending hours replaying the software history with folks, talking about efficient distributed systems (or “microservices”) because–Bingo! Reactive is all about these stories!
