Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week the Spring team is at JavaOne! There's been, and will be, lots to see! We're also hanging out at the booth, talking to as many users as possible. Check out the link I just give listing all the cool Pivotal (and non-Pivotal) talks at JavaOne. (Ahem. Naturally, I personally would love it if you made my talk - Spring4TW! - tomorrow morning at 8:30am at Parc 55, Cyril Magnin II/III!).
In addition to IoT, Big Data, and Microservice demos using NetFlixOSS on Spring, students were doing the coding challenge to build a REST service with Spring Boot and pushed to Pivotal Web Services in < 15 minutes to get the preshavedyak hoodie from American Apparel, and learning about the best PaaS for Java available on the market today; Java 8 / Tomcat 8 support was released just days ago, and there is strong support for Spring, Groovy and Grails.
