Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring! As usual, we've got a lot to cover so let's dive into it!

Quick reminder: if you're in the San Francisco bay area, be sure to join me tomorrow evening at the Oakland JUG where I'll be speaking about Spring and Spring Boot!

  1. Join us on February 11th for a webinar introducing what's coming in Apache Tomcat 8.
  2. Join Spring Data engineers Oliver Gierke and Thomas Darimont on February 18 for a webinar introducing Spring Data repositories best-practices
  3. Check out the replay of Spring MVC ninja Rossen Stoyanchev's talk from SpringOne2GX 2013 on WebSocket Applications with Spring Framework 4.0.
  4. Check out the replay of Spring Security lead Rob Winch's webinar introducing Spring Security 3.2
  5. Check out Mattias Severson's SpringOne 2013 session replay reviewing Spring MVC test APIs.
  6. Spring Security lead Rob Winch has a nice post on how cookies can be exploited if not properly secured.

  8. Les Cast Codeurs, a French language coding podcast (though, fairly well dominated by JVM technologies), interviewed Grails and Reactor committer Stephane Maldini, check it out!
  9. The Squadron blog has a nice post on how to use TLS (and the instructions are basically the same for SSL). This post is not specific to Spring, but if you're looking at Spring Security's X.509 support, then this article will be very useful.
  10. Mkyong is back with another post, this time on using TestNG with Spring.
