Wow guys! December 4th already! Time sure flies when you're having fun!
Welcome back to another installment of <EM>This Week in Spring</EM>. This week, I'm in Beijing for <a href="http://springonechina.cloudfoundry.com">SpringOne China</a> and, next week, I'm off to India for <A href="http://springoneindia.cloudfoundry.com/">SpringOne India</a>. If you're in Beijing, Bangalore or Hyderabad, I'd love to see you at these events!
Alright, let's get on with this week's roundup!
</LI> <LI>Martin Lippert's announced that the <a href="http://www.springsource.org/node/3757">Spring Tool Suite and Groovy Tool Suite 3.2.0.M1 have been released!</a> </li> <LI> Tobias Trelle is back at it again, <A href= "http://blog.codecentric.de/en/2012/11/spring-batch-mongodb/">this time</a> with a blog on how to use Spring Batch with MongoDB, including working code <a href= "https://github.com/ttrelle/spring-batch-mongodb-support">at his GitHub repository
<LI> The All and Sundry blog has a <a href="http://www.java-allandsundry.com/2012/11/spring-test-mvc-with-spring-32rc1.html">nice post on how to use Spring's Test MVC framework in Spring 3.2</a>. </lI> <LI> The <EM>Kruders</EM> blog has an interesting post on how <a href= "http://kruders.com/spring-mvc/configure-multiple-handler-mappings-in-spring-mvc/">to configure multiple handler mappings with Spring MVC based on a priority</a> </lI> <LI> The <EM>WikAdz</eM> blog has an interesting video on
Spring's autowiring capabilities.
<A href= "http://article-stack.com/education/tiles-framework-what-why-and-how-to-integrate-with-spring-framework.amty"> integrating Spring with Apache Tiles</a>. Apache Tiles is a nice way to manage complex layouts in web applications and can be used wit other view technologies besides <CODE>.JSP</CODE> like <a href= "http://www.thymeleaf.org/">Thymeleaf</a>. It's also worth noting that Tiles gives you a nice, central place to make decisions about what content is rendered based on the type of request. This is useful, for example, when using Spring Mobile to render mobile form-factor appropriate content or more desktop-browser centric content. </lI> <LI> Dinuka Arseculeratne over at the Java Code Geeks blog has an interesting article on integration testing <a href= "http://www.javacodegeeks.com/2012/11/how-cool-is-integration-testing-with-spring-and-hibernate.html">data access logic with Spring</a> and Hibernate. Very cool! </lI>
