SpringOne2GX Replay: Spring Batch Performance Tuning

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Gunnar Hillert, Chris Schaefer Slides: Data / Integration Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-batch-performance-tuning

In this presentation we will examine various scalability options in order to improve the robustness and performance of your Spring Batch applications. We start out with a single threaded Spring Batch application that we will refactor so we can demonstrate how to run it using: * Concurrent Steps * Remote Chunking * AsyncItemProcessor and AsyncItemWriter * Remote Partitioning Additionally, we will show how you can deploy Spring Batch applications to Spring XD which provides high availability and failover capabilities. Spring XD also allows you to integrate Spring Batch applications with other Big Data processing needs.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Panel Session: Real World Boot-up sequences

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Erdem Gunay, Turkcell - Tim Hobson, Intuit - Zach Lendon, Independent

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-one2gx-2014wideerdemgunay-41125935

Core Spring Track

In this Panel session, each of these presenters will have 20 minutes to respond to the question: tell us about your experiences with Spring Boot? Following that is about 30 minutes of moderated panel discussion. Erdem Gunay from Turkcell will present his experience of re-writing a Mobile BaaS originally written with Spring 3.x. He wrote the service from scratch using Boot in one week, integrating spring security, elasticsearch, mongodb, camel, angular.js, for the win: 40x throughput, 100% availability - zero crashes, 3x the users - used on 300k mobile devices. Tim Hobson from Intuit will present his lessons learned from using with Boot - he will take you through what configuration was necessary, what needed to be built, and how the project leveraged Boot to minimize cross-cutting code and configuration, maximize testability, and focus on the application domain. Zach will present a view of Boot from the hospitality industry, where they are using JAX-RS, DropWizard, and Spring Boot to create micro-service applications. He will help you understand which dropwizard-spring integrations work, and which one's don't, what to watch out for, and how to integrate your Spring applications into dropwizard whether you configure your Spring applications with xml, annotations, and/or java config files.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Artistic Spring Data Neo4j 3.x with Spring Boot

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Michael Hunger, Lorenzo Speranzoni - Neo Technology

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/artistic-spring-data-neo4j-3x-with-spring-boot-and-van-gogh

This session will show, how easy it is to get started with Spring Data Neo4j using Spring Boot. After a quick introduction of the concepts behind the Neo4j NoSQL graph database and its Spring Data integration library, we will discuss the general approach used in Spring Data Neo4j and highlight the exciting, new features of the new 3.x releases which now works with the most recent Neo4j 2.x versions. During the session we'll demonstrate the development steps of an exciting and unusual application - tracking an famous' artists journey connecting him to the places, paintings, people and other aspects that influenced him. Having this data in a graph allows us to find new insights and conclusions as well as quickly adding different aspects to it. This application will use Spring Boot and Spring Data Neo4j to get started quickly. We import the data, look at it as a graph visualization and then build a web-application using Spring Boot's supporting infrastructure. As a final step we show how evolving this application from being a just Neo4j client application to a REST extension of the Neo4j server requires only a few steps and can leverage Spring Data REST to provide the neccessary endpoints for consumers.

Better dependency management for Gradle

Maven’s dependency management includes the concept of a bill-of-materials (bom). A bom is a special kind of pom that is used to control the versions of a project’s dependencies and provides a central place to define and update those versions.

A number of Spring projects including Spring Framework, Spring Cloud, Spring Boot, and the Spring IO Platform provide boms to make things easier for Maven users. Unfortunately, things haven’t been quite so easy if you’re using Gradle.
