Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring. There is a lot to look at this week with much of the excitement around the just released Spring for Apache Hadoop project, which provides a very, very powerful Spring API integration for Apache Hadoop, an open source framework originally designed to support map-reduce style batch processing solutions.
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.What are you waiting for? Go! Check it out! When you're done, you might check out the other coverage of the event, as well. As you might expect, a lot of people blogged about it, too.
</LI> <LI> What are you guys doing in two days, on March 8th, 2012? I'll be at the Native Android Development with Spring for Android webinar that introduces native Android development practices, resource management and the Spring for Android integration library, which makes the whole process more natural for developers that wish to interface with services on the server side. There are, as usual, two editions, one <a href= "http://www.springsource.org/node/3482">for North America</A> and <a href = "http://www.springsource.org/node/3481">one for Europe</A>. Don't miss it! </LI> <LI> The inimitable <a href = "http://blog.springsource.org/author/ozhurakousky/">Oleg Zhurakousky</A> today <a href ="http://blog.springsource.org/2012/03/05/introducing-spring-integration-scala-dsl/">announced the Spring Integration Scala DSL</a>. The DSL extends the Spring Integration API to Scala developers using a very concise, idiomatic Scala-based DSL.
Just when you thought Spring Integration couldn't get any more concise!

<LI> If you're having trouble with a recently trusted, but misbehaving, PGP key in Spring Roo, then <a href = "http://whyjava.wordpress.com/2012/03/04/spring-roo-pgp-exception/">this solution is for you</A>. </LI>
