SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Project Jigsaw in JDK 9: Modularity Comes To Java

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Simon Ritter, Azul Systems
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/project-jigsaw-in-jdk-9-modularity-comes-to-java-64849781

Project Jigsaw will bring modularity to the Java platform; something that will enable better security, performance and flexibility for deployment of applications. This talk will look at the fundamentals of how modularity in Java will work. Developers will need to understand that these changes go significantly further than just separating the standard class libraries into a number of discrete units.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Machine Learning Exposed!

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: James Weaver
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/machine-learning-exposed-64845395
The term “machine learning” is increasingly bandied about in corporate settings and cocktail parties, but what is it, really? In this session we’ll answer that question, providing an approachable overview of machine learning concepts, technologies, and use cases. We’ll then take a deeper dive into machine learning topics such as supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and deep learning. We’ll also survey various machine learning APIs and platforms. Technologies including Spring and Cloud Foundry will be leveraged in the demos. You’ll be the hit of your next party when you’re able to express the near-magical inner-workings of artificial neural networks!

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Developing a Geospatial Webservice with Kotlin and Spring Boot

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Sébastien Deleuze
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/developing-a-geospatial-webservice-with-kotlin-and-spring-boot

As described in this announcement I made on the Spring blog, it is now easy to create a Spring Boot application using Kotlin.

Thanks to a sample Geospatial messenger application, I will show how Spring Boot and Kotlin share the same pragmatic, innovative and opinionated mindset to allow you to build simple but powerful projects.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: High Performance Microservices with Ratpack and Spring Boot

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Dan Woods
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/high-performance-microservices-with-ratpack-and-spring-boot-64889596

Ratpack and Spring Boot are a match made in microservice heaven. Each brings its respective strengths to the task of building a compelling service for the cloud. Spring Boot’s incorporation of the Spring and Spring Cloud ecosystems make it an excellent choice for building service components; Ratpack’s nature as a reactive web framework and its emphasis on performance and efficiency make it a premiere choice for a durable web tier. When the two frameworks join forces, developers become unstoppable. This talk will showcase Ratpack and Spring Boot’s complementary integrations, and demonstrate, through live coding, building a high performance microservice.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: No outage database development with Spring Boot and Liquibase

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: Barrington-Hughes, Ramaswamy, Premier Healthcare Inc
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/no-outage-database-development-with-spring-boot-and-liquibase

Pavi and I work on a project in Premier where we’ve embedded Liquibase into the start of our Spring Boot applications to upgrade our database in-direct coupling with the code we are deploying.

Using a measured and planned approach to agile database development and careful refactoring of the database with more frequent but smaller changes, we facilitate having no outage deployments along with database schema upgrades.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Next Level Spring Boot Tooling

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: Martin Lippert, Kris De Volder, Andy Clement
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/next-level-spring-boot-tooling

The recent releases of the widely used Spring tooling for Eclipse have focused a lot on making Spring Boot app and microservice development easier and more effective. In this talk we will showcase the latest features for working with Spring Boot - using live demos and live coding. We will show the easiest ways to get started with Spring Boot, move on to advanced features for dealing with Spring Boot properties in property and YAML files (including greatly improved content-assist, validations, hover help), and demo the Spring Boot dashboard. This major innovation in the Spring tooling makes it extremely easy to deal with potentially many Spring Boot microservice projects in your workspace. We will demo all the new features, including advanced editing of Cloud Foundry manifest files and the ability to detect and merge configuration changes between your cloud runtime and your workspace projects. The talk is all about being more effective in your IDE when working with Spring Boot and turning your IDE into a microservice development center when working with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and a cloud-native runtime like Cloud Foundry.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Easy Consumption of Microservices

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speakers: - Ted Tollefson, Shawn Sherwood, Kroger
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/easy-consumption-of-microservices

Cloud Foundry makes it easy to deploy and run microservices. Now that you have your microservice running, how do you make it easy for other teams to consume it? Spring Initializr, Spring Boot, Spring Cloud Netflix and Cloud Foundry can be used together to make the consumption side easy and efficient. Client libraries can be offered in Spring Initializr. The generated Spring Boot application can be deployed to Cloud Foundry. Service discovery can be provided with Spring Cloud Netflix. The consuming project team can simply write their business logic. This talk will cover the steps to extend Initializr to accomplish easy microservice consumption.

Spring Roo 2.0.0.M3 released

On behalf on the Spring Roo team at DISID Corporation, I’m pleased to announce the third milestone of Spring Roo 2.0. This is the last milestone, from now on we’re going to work in the first release candidate.

M3 generates fully functional Spring applications, this release includes important changes in the architecture of the generated applications, that should be compatible with the improvements that the RC1 will introduce but it is not guaranteed, so the projects generated with the M3 might not been upgraded automatically by the RC1.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Testing with Spring Framework 4.3, JUnit 5, and Beyond

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Sam Brannen, Swiftmind
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/testing-with-spring-43-junit-5-and-beyond

Curious about what’s new in Spring’s testing support in 4.3 or what’s on the horizon in Spring 5 and JUnit 5? Then join Sam Brannen, Spring Test component lead and JUnit 5 core committer, to find out! The first part of this session will give attendees an overview of the latest core integration testing improvements in Spring 4.3 such as the new SpringRunner alias for the SpringJUnit4ClassRunner, the omission of @ContextConfiguration when it can be inferred, support for @Sql and @SqlGroup as composed annotations, limiting the context cache size within a test suite, and the new ContextCustomizer API for customizing a test’s ApplicationContext. The next part will cover recent improvements in Spring MVC Test such as server-side testing support for expectations on response headers, form data processing, JSON prefixes in response content, custom HTTP verbs, and verifying that a specific controller method was invoked as well as client-side REST testing support for indicating how many times a request is expected and expectations for form data in the request body. The focus will then shift to what kinds of testing features to expect in Spring Framework 5.0. And last, but certainly not least, Sam will dive into live examples using Spring Framework’s upcoming support for JUnit 5 for modern testing on Java 8 and beyond.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Going Reactive: Building Better Microservices

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Rob Harrop, Skipjaq
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/going-reactive-building-better-microservices-rob-harrop

Reactive provides developers with an elegant model for constructing applications out of communicating components that improves code readability, eases concurrent programming and supports fine-grained unit testing.

In this talk, we’ll see how this model is a natural fit for building resilient microservices. Specifically, we’ll see how to:
