I thought I would take the opportunity to provide a general “what’s new?” guide. There are actually too many new features and improvements to cover them all in a single post, but I will focus on some of the highlights. We will be posting more blogs as we get closer to the 2.0 GA release. For now, this post is roughly based on a session that Oleg and I presented last week at SpringOne. That presentation was mostly demo-driven, and the code is available in our Git repository.

Introducing GORM for Gemfire

One of the many reasons for the rise of NoSQL datastores is the need to scale applications beyond their traditional comfort zone in the relational world. The irony is that Gemfire has been doing exactly this long before the term NoSQL was even coined by providing scale to some of the largest financial organizations in the world.

Gemfire is far more than a cache, but a complete data fabric with support for Grid Computing, Map/Reduce, continuous queries and transactional write-behind.

For those of you who attended the keynote at the hugely successful SpringOne2GX conference this may be old news. For the rest today I am pleased to announce the availability of the GORM for Gemfire plugin for Grails.

SpringOne2GX 2010: Driving Java Innovation into the Cloud

We are currently celebrating our 6th SpringOne 2GX developer show—since last year, also a celebration of Groovy and Grails. As always, it’s great to hang out with the developer community that has made Spring the phenomenon it is. This year, we not only have record attendance (doubled over last year!) and a fantastic roster of partners (headed by Google, and Accenture), but an unusually large number of initiatives to share with our community.

With so many topics to discuss this could easily turn into the longest blog post in history. Instead, let’s address some of the highlights, focused around the continuing mission of Spring: Portability and Productivity through Innovation.

Spring 3 on a Java EE 6 server

Spring on Java EE 6 - a viable combination? Can you easily continue to use Spring when you have a Java EE 6 server to deploy to? At this year’s edition of the SpringOne conference which kicked off just a few hours ago, I’ll once again be presenting a session on Spring and EE 6: now with a focus on GlassFish 3 as an actually available (and at this point, still the only available) EE 6 server for production environments. As a sneak preview, here are four key considerations taken from that presentation…

SpringSource has just released a new milestone version of SpringSource Tool Suite: 2.5.0.RC1. STS provides the best Eclipse-powered development environment for building Spring and Grails powered enterprise applications.
