This Year in Spring

Welcome back to the final installment of This Week in Spring for 2011. It’s incredible to think that we’ve been doing this for a year already! Where has the time gone? Time flies when you’re having fun, as they say…

The hope has always been that these roundups would make it easier for developers to take the pulse of the Spring community. Between the announcements and releases and content from SpringSource and VMware and the incredible deluge of content authored by the community, there is always something interesting happening, somewhere.

Video: Introduction to using MongoDB and Spring on Cloud Foundry

In this video Jared Rosoff from 10gen and Thomas Risberg from SpringSource show what the combination of MongoDB and Cloud Foundry has to offer to Spring developers. They develop a sample application combining MongoDB and the Spring Data project, and show how to build and deploy it to the cloud. After 60 minutes, you too will be ready to develop and deploy to the cloud your own Spring applications that use MongoDB.
