Engineering | Josh Long | May 15, 2012 | ...

Welcome back to another installment of This week in Spring!. We've got a lot to cover this week, as usual. So, onward!

  1. Rossen Stoyanchev has just released part two and three of his blog series introducing Spring MVC 3.2's new features. In the first installment, Rossen introduces how to make a Spring MVC @Controller asynchronous. In the second post, Rossen introduces how to add long polling to an existing web application. Long polling is useful in any number of scenarios where you want to simulate server-side push with client-side applications.

    penned an article that helps you take your first steps on Cloud Foundry with a simple Spring application in the new JavaTech Journal, the online magazine from the producers of the JAX conference.
