Webinar: Spring Boot and JRebel 6.0

Spring Boot and JRebel 6.0

Speaker: Adam Koblentz, JRebel and Josh Long, Pivotal

Spring Boot, the new convention-over-configuration centric framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring's flexibility with conventional, common sense defaults to make application development not just fly, but pleasant! Spring Boot gives you a huge leg up over normal starter projects, now let's give you another boost by adding JRebel. With JRebel, the average Java developer saves over 1 work-month per year by using JRebel to skip rebuild, restart, and redeploys of their application. JRebel 6 launches on November 4, 2014 and includes complete Spring Boot integration. Join Spring's Josh Long and ZeroTurnaround's Adam Koblentz and learn how to combine Boot with JRebel and get more done, in less time with less configuration.

Webinar: Building “Bootful” UIs with Spring Boot and Vaadin

Speaker: Josh Long, Pivotal and Vaadin

It's been a long day, but you've done it: you've got a Spring Boot powered backend and now you need to build the UI that'll power the workforce and deliver next week. Vaadin, a UI framework that marries the ease of use of server-side Java and the rich, dynamic nature of client-side JavaScript, integrates well with Spring Boot and offers UI polish that would be hard to secure any other way. Join Spring developer advocate Josh Long and Vaadin evangelists for a look at how Vaadin and Spring Boot can get you to production quicker, and easier.

Webinar: Security for Microservices with Spring and OAuth2

Speaker: Dave Syer

Security for Microservices with Spring and OAuth2 OAuth2 is a lightweight security protocol that is well-suited for use with HTTP, the protocol at the heart of many modern architectures. Spring Security OAuth2 has a load of new features, not the least of which being the `@Configuration` support in version 2.0. Combine these with Spring Boot and you have a platform which can get you a secure HTTP service application in about 20 lines of code. This presentation shows how the combination of rapid development and production-ready features in the modern Spring stack are a perfect mixture for developing secure components in a system composed of microservices. We explore the new features in Spring OAuth2, guide you through the choice of which to use and when, and show how easy they are to enable quickly.

Webinar Replay: Process Driven Spring Applications with Activiti

Speakers: Josh Long and Joram Barrez, Activiti

Slides: https://speakerdeck.com/joshlong/process-driven-applications-with-spring-boot

Today's applications are complex, distributed systems that - taken together - produce results. Tracking the flow of work through that system, however, becomes increasingly more painful as automated- and human-driven tasks are integrated into business processes. Business can't react to what it can't see. Business can't measure what it can't see. "Workflow" describes the sequence of processes through which a piece of work passes from initiation to completion. Workflow systems, like Activiti, describe and then execute these processes. Activiti is an open-source, Apache 2-licensed workflow engine that works with Spring and Spring Boot. In this webinar, join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long and Activiti-ninja Joram Barrez for a look at how to distill, describe and reuse complex business processes using Spring (and Spring Boot) and Activiti.
