Webinar: Spring Integration Done Boot-ifully

Speaker: Glenn Renfro

With the increase in the number of devices that emit information it has become ever more important to be able to retrieve this data and process accordingly. In response to this need, MQTT has become the defacto lightweight transport for connecting an "Internet of things". With that being said, how do your applications support for eventing, messaging, and scheduling? Utilizing Spring Boot and Spring Integration you will see how to create an application with a scheduler that will retrieve data from a web service, cleanse and emit the data via MQTT. Then we'll show you how to create an application also written using Spring Boot and Spring Integration, that will capture the MQTT events and record the results. From this discussion you can see how to use these tools and take advantage of them for your own big data projects as soon as you return to the office.

Webinar: Spring Batch 3.0.0

Speaker: Michael Minella

The Spring team is gearing up for a major rev of Spring Batch - Spring Batch 3.0.0 RC1 which introduces JSR-352 support, among other features. Adopting a Java EE standard that was directly based on Spring Batch to begin with is fortunately, fairly straightforward for us. JavaEE7 compliance updates and expands the scope of Spring Batch 3.0.0 to combine JavaEE7/352 compliance with years of Batch's battle-tested, proven-in-production codebase. Of course, there is a wealth of capability and features that go far beyond the specification into distributed processing and beyond. In this webinar, project lead Michael Minella will cover Spring Batch's implementation of JSR-352 as well as some of the new features in the 3.0 release.

Webinar: Abstracting PaaS services to be portable with Spring Cloud

Speaker: Ramnivas Laddad

Developing an application to a cloud platform involves working with a deployed application's environment and connecting to services. Spring Cloud, a new project, simplifies these tasks in a variety of cloud platforms including Cloud Foundry and Heroku. Spring Cloud makes it possible to deploy the same artifact (a war or a jar) to multiple cloud environments. It supports multiple clouds through the concept of Cloud Connector and provides out of the box implementation for Cloud Foundry and Heroku, and extension points for other cloud platforms. In this talk, we will introduce the Spring Cloud project, show how you can simplify configuring applications for cloud deployment, discuss its extensibility mechanism, and put it to good use by showing practical examples from the field.

SpringOne2GX 2013 Replay: Free Yourself with CloudFoundry: A Private Cloud Experience

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2013 in Santa Clara, CA.

Speakers: Mike Heath, Shawn Nielsen, Mike Youngstrom - LDS Church

Cloud Foundry makes managing and deploying applications incredibly simple. However, deploying Cloud Foundry itself can be a challenging task. We will be sharing what we learned deploying Cloud Foundry and what it took to win over our organization. Learn from our experiences deploying Cloud Foundry with BOSH and integrating with our existing enterprise infrastructure. We will discuss: Developing and customizing Cloud Foundry while staying in sync with the open source repositories Building custom Cloud Foundry services using Java and Spring Improved gathering application diagnostics by simplifying JMX and remote debugging support in Cloud Foundry Enhanced security and auditability with application level firewalls Come learn from our successes as well as our mistakes.

SpringOne2GX 2013 Replay: Build Your Very Own Private Cloud Foundry

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2013 in Santa Clara, CA.

Speaker: Matt Stine

This session will focus on how you can build your very own Cloud Foundry private PaaS running in your own data center or on AWS or even on OpenStack on your own Mac mini. You will learn how the Cloud Foundry BOSH tool constructs a full Cloud Foundry instance from a bare bones virtual machine and continues to coordinate and manage the entire PaaS cloud once it is operational. If you want the convenience of developing against your own private custom PaaS within your company, then this session will give you all the steps you need to get started.

Spring Boot 1.1.0.M2 Available Now

Spring Boot 1.1.0.M2 is available now in the Spring repositories. There are quite a few new features and plenty of new documentation:

  • Groovy Template and Velocity support for MVC and offline rendering.

  • Big changes to the HealthIndicator interface and the existing implementations, e.g. all database backends (like Mongo etc.) have a default HealthIndicator and the Actuator aggregates them all up into a single readout.

  • Support for Spring Data Solr and Spring Data Gemfire, and upgrade to
    the Spring Data Dijkstra release train

  • Support for multiple DataSources through a convenient
    DataSourceBuilder abstraction, plus a similar feature for JPA
    EntityManagerFactories

  • Upgrades to various new versions of existing dependencies,
    e.g. Spring Batch 3.0, Spring Security 3.2.4

Spring for Apache Hadoop 2.0 RC4 released

We are happy to announce that Spring for Apache Hadoop version 2.0 RC4 is now available.

Now includes simplified support for building YARN applications


We are getting close to a GA release of Spring for Apache Hadoop 2.0. Based on feedback from using the Spring Boot support for YARN in the Spring XD project, we have refined the programming model we use for developing YARN applications.

The challenge

We keep challenging Janne to make the model simpler. The latest challenge was to make it possible to write a single Java source file plus one configuration file and keep it under 50 lines. I think we came pretty close:
