I am happy to announce that the first milestone release (1.0.0.M1) for Spring for Apache Hadoop project is available and talk about some of the work we have been doing over the last few months. Part of the Spring Data umbrella, Spring for Apache Hadoop provides support for developing applications based on Apache Hadoop technologies by leveraging the capabilities of the Spring ecosystem. Whether one is writing stand-alone, vanilla MapReduce applications, interacting with data from multiple data stores across the enterprise, or coordinating a complex workflow of HDFS, Pig, or Hive jobs, or anything in between, Spring for Apache Hadoop stays true to the Spring philosophy offering a simplified programming model and addresses “accidental complexity” caused by the infrastructure. Spring for Apache Hadoop, provides a powerful tool in the developer arsenal for dealing with big data volumes.

The full itinerary's provided on the linked page, but if you're in (or near) Shanhai, Beijing, Tokyo, London, Moscow, Kiev, San Francisco, Portland, Austin, and Washington D.C., then you should not miss this event - <a href="http://opentour.cloudfoundry.com/" target="_blank">the tour will be in your backyard!</A> I hope to see you there, as always.
In the recent Messaging for Modern Applications webinar, Tom McCuch explained how the landscape of enterprise messaging has changed and discusses what new styles of solutions are emerging. Tom covers emerging messaging application architectures, AMQP & RabbitMQ as messaging solutions and the rise of Spring Integration for messaging use cases and as a DSL for Spring-based applications.
