This Week in Spring - October 7th, 2014

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week, I’ve been at the Couchbase Connect conference talking to developers about Spring Data Couchbase (and Spring Boot, Spring XD, Spring Session, and more..). Fun show, fun crowd! Next week, I’ll be at JAX London and Geekout UK, so be sure to say hi if you’re around.

Now, with that, let’s get on to the roundup..

  1. The good Dr. Pollack just announced the 1.0.1 release of Spring XD, the easiest way to build data-integration and ingestion solutions. It may be only a 1.0.1 release, but make no mistake: there are some very cool features in this release, including improved administrative and administrative UI features.

Streaming JSON Patch from Spring to a React UI

We’re exploring ways to help developers create rich, modern front-ends that integrate easily with Spring back-ends. If you attended SpringOne this year, you’ve already seen some of the things we’ve been working on:

  1. Hypermedia support in Spring Data REST presented by Greg Turnquist, Oliver Gierke, and Roy Clarkson
  2. RaveJS: Spring Boot concepts for JavaScript applications by John Hann
  3. Differential Synchronization and JSON Patch by Craig Walls and me

In short, We want to make it easy to communicate efficiently between a Spring back-end and a client and to easily integrate the best and most popular client-side technologies.
