Wow! Last week's SpringOne 2GX event was sensational. It was an amazing time, and it was - as usual - great to see the Spring community going so strong. I can't wait until the videos from the event start to appear on InfoQ.com.
We've got a lot to cover this week, though, so let's get into it! </P>
Don't tell anyone, but even if you missed SpringOne 2GX, the decks for all the talks should be on SpringOne2GX.com, and the videos for all the talks will be on InfoQ.com soon.
To tide you over in the short term, the deck from SpringSource CTO Adrian Colyer's keynote - "Spring yesterday, today, and tomorrow" - is available online. Thanks Adrian!
<LI> One of the many big announcements that came from the SpringOne2GX event was that of <a href= "http://neo4j.org/spring/">Neo4j 2.0</a>. If you're curious to learn more about how Spring (through the <A HREF= "http://www.springsource.org/spring-data/neo4j">Spring Data Neo4j project</A>) can work with Neo4J, check out <a href= "http://neo4j.org/spring/">this page</a>. </LI>
At <a href= "http://www.springone2gx.com">SpringOne 2GX</A> just last week, <EM>two</EM> different people approached me about their use cases for multi-tenancy with Spring and Hibernate. Ken DeLong, who I met last week, has written a <a href= "http://www.jroller.com/kenwdelong/entry/multi_tenancy_using_spring_and">blog post on the strategy he took</A> and was kind enough to share with us. Nice job, Ken, and thanks!
Understanding Spring Security and Role Based Access Control. I think this is useful because it points out some of what's possible with Spring and Spring Security, and you're free from there to pursue the specifics after. Good stuff!
</li> <LI> There are lots of goodies in Spring 3.1, but one that has received a lot of attention is the updated testing support. Testing's an important part to enterprise software development, and Spring's always made this important task as easy as possible. Check out the Java Code Geek's blog on <a href= "http://www.javacodegeeks.com/2011/10/spring-3-testing-with-junit-4.html">Spring 3 Testing with JUnit 4 with <CODE>ContextConfiguration</CODE> and <CODE>AbstractTransactionalJUnit4SpringContextTests</CODE></A>.
<LI> Cobalto Labs has just announced the first release of their first version of the Scala Primavera project, which aims to bring the <a href= "http://www.cobaltolabs.com/index.php/blog/scalaprimavera-ver-0.1/">Scala language's expressiveness to Spring</A>. Check it out, fellow Spring-loving Scala-heads!
