Don't miss the day 1 and 2 keynotes from Adrian Colyer, Jurgen Hoeller, Mark Pollack, Graeme Rocher, as well as exciting sessions we've highlighted on in the last 4 weeks: Going Async - Push Notifications, Client-Side UI Smackdown, Decomposing Applications for Deployability and Scalability, How to build Big Data Pipelines for Hadoop using OSS.

    	 <A href = "">Gary Russell has put together a nice blog on the new support for retry in Spring Integration</A>.  The support for retry capabilities originally comes from Spring Batch's support for retrying  
    	 operations, and was then factored out to the <a href="">Spring Retry</A> project. Now, you can take advantage of it in Spring Integration flows!
  5. Gunnar Hillert has a nice post on how to use the new adapters in Spring Integration 2.2 to work with JPA.
