This Week in Spring

Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring! I'm still reeling from last week. If you were there, you know what I mean, if not, then look forward to the videos coming out over the coming months. There's so much stuff to see.

For those of you who were at the show and sought me out because of This Week in Spring, it was really great to meet you all!

The world keeps on spinning of course, so let's look at some of what's happened this last week.

  1. Jennifer Hickey has announced that Spring Data Redis 1.1 has been released. The new release provides support for pipelining, data type conversion, and a modified API for adding or removing multiple List, Set, and Hash elements all in one call. Great stuff, check it out!
  2. AspectJ, Scala, Cloud Foundry, and Spring framework ninja Ramnivas Laddad has just announced the first cut of the Spring Cloud project, which in turn is a revolutionary API that takes the cloudfoundry-runtime library previously used with Cloud Foundry applications to the next level, opening the doors for support of multiple providers. Nice job, Ramnivas! And, dear community, if you want to see more, now's the time to check out the code and sound off!
  3. Over on the @GoPivotal blog, Stacey Schneider has put together a very nice post on her experiences at her first SpringOne2GX last week. Great read, and I echo her sentiments, even though this was not my first SpringOne2gx! :)
  4. Didn't get enough Data-love last week? Spring Data ninja Oliver Gierke just announced the latest cuts of two community modules: the first milestone of Spring Data Couchbase lead by Michael Nitschinger and the 1.0 GA of Spring Data Solr lead by Christoph Strobl.
  5. I put together a blog that introduces some of the things required to make the Spring Social binding that Roy Clarkson and I demonstrated last week at SpringOne2GX work with Spring Android, specifically as concerns the loading of certain classes in Spring core, Spring Security and Spring HATEOAS. Check it out!
  6. Groovy/Grails, and Spring, Tool Suite ninja Martin Lippert has just announced the latest iteration of STS and GGTS, versions 3.4.0.M1, has been released!
  7. Our pal Tobias Flohre is at it again, this time with two great SpringOne2GX wrapup posts. The first looks at some of the Spring XD, Batch and Hadoop technologies demonstrated, and the second looks at Spring Boot and the Spring IO platform.
  8. Rossen Stoyanchev, the genius behind the websockets support in Spring 4, has put together an amazing slate of demos using WebSockets and STOMP (which you can work with from RabbbitMQ!) and he showed these demos off last week at SpringOne2GX 2013 to wide acclaim. Nice job! If you missed it last week, at least check out the code, now.
  9. The blog has a nice (French-language!) interview with my pal Eric Bottard, a (French-speaking) developer on Spring XD. Good read!
  10. The fine folks over at IntelliGrape have put together a nice roundup of their favorite talks from SpringOne2GX on day 2. Check it out!
