This Week in Spring - August 26th, 2014
Holy cats! Can you believe how close we are to SpringOne2GX? Last year we made a huge splash with the announcements of Spring Boot and Spring XD, both of which have recently hit 1.0 releases. I happen to know the next level looks like, and you're going to want to see it. Register now if you haven't already!
- Spring ninja Greg Turnquist wanted to replace one of the services used in the guides with something more family-friendly and so stood up a bespoke substitute using Spring! This is a really nice read, check it out!
- I hope you'll join me September 16th for a webinar looking at building microservices with Spring
- On September 23rd, join Joram Barrez and I for a webinar looking at how to build process-centric Spring applications with the open-source BPMN2 engine, Activiti
- Patrick Grimard did a really nice job introducing how to build Spring Boot applications using IntelliJ IDEA. Pretty obvious, I hope, but it's nice to have it in one place.
- The GeekAbyte shows how to implement a
HandlerMethodArgumentResolver in other to resolve and inject objects into Spring MVC controllers. This is a really powerful technique if you need it.
- This looks interesting - a (Swiss?) German workshop on building modern web applications using Spring IO and Angular.js. I wish I could go! Check it out if you're in the area - I'd love to know how it went and if the recording and/or slides are going to be available.
- Our pal Tomasz Nurkiewicz is at it again, this time with a look on building a URL shortner ("the new 'Hello, world!' in the IoT/microservice/era world" - ha!) in 42 lines of code. So... go, check it out!
- (Aforementioned Spring ninja) Greg Turnquist's writing a book on Spring Boot for PACKT, and he's just posted a summary of the latest chapter (on security) on his blog. This is exciting stuff - definitely intriguing, check it out! Rock on, Greg! (Did I mention he'll be at SpringOne2GX, too?)
- Pankaj Kumar introduces a simple Spring Data MongoDB example in this post
- This (Japanese-language) post (appears) to introduce basic dependency injection with Spring). Could do...
- This (Portuguese-language) post introduces how to create a Spring Security context in unit tests. This approach works, but readers should definitely check out some of the cool stuff Spring Security lead Rob Winch has been unveiling to support unit-testing secure applications recently...
- A few years ago I blogged about the amazing things the Alibaba group is doing to meet China-scale demand with Spring. They built an (open-source) framework called Dubbo (which sits on top of Spring), and this (Mandarin-language) post has a (simple) example demonstrating its use. Very cool!
I am personally super excited to see Greg, Rob, the rest of the Spring team, and of course all of you, at SpringOne2GX! Register now if you haven't!
