Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This morning, I had the joy of presenting with my pal Joram Barrez on using the Activiti BPMN workflow engine with Spring (and Spring Boot). That talk should be online in the next few weeks or so. I'll also be co-presenting with Joram this week at the Alfresco Summit (on the very same topic). If you missed SpringOne2GX 2014, check out the Day 1 and Day 2 wrap ups where can learn about NetFlix, Spring Boot and microservice architecture, among many other things.
- The replay of the webinar talk that I gave last week, Bootiful Microservices with Spring Boot (and Spring Cloud), is now available online. This talk - because of Boot and the subject matter - got a lot of attention and so this was actually available online within a few days (not the usual week or two) of my having presented it! Enjoy!
- I'm really digging some of the posts that've come out of the Codeleak.pl blog of late! First up, this post on unit testing e-mail integration code written atop Spring Boot - check it out!
- Shortly after the microservice talk, I received a tweet pointing me to a recently added talk on how a Polish company builds microservices with Spring. The talk's mostly high level, with a spattering of Spring here and there. This is a cool talk and, at 30 minutes, easy to consume quickly).
- Rafał Borowiec over on the Codeleak.pl site has done a really nice job! He followed up his previous post (on unit testing e-mail) with a look at Spring Boot's
- Rafał also put together this nice post on using validation groups to validate Spring MVC models and this other post on testing that a given Spring MVC model has registered global errors
- Biju Kunjummen has put together a nice post on customizing
HttpMessageConverters in a Spring Boot application
- Adrian Matei has put together a very nice post on building Spring Batch applications with Java configuration and Spring Boot
- My pal and Spring ninja Greg Turnquist has a nice post looking at his very imminent book on Spring Boot. I can't wait! Greg's a smart and passionate guy, and if you ever read his Spring Python book, you know he's a fun read, too!
- The Develop and Conquer blog has a great post on consuming Active Directory LDAP from Spring Security in a Spring Boot application - check it out! He has quite a few nice posts (like using ActiveMQ and STOMP support behind Spring 4's websocket support) on other topics, too, so do check it out!
