Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This year has flown so quickly by! Can you believe we're less than 19 days until 2017? I'm utterly stunned. I suppose I shouldn't be, though, given the breakneck speed of progress and new software releases from the Spring team and the community. What a good problem to have!
This week, after returning from Australia early Sunday morning, I hacked with my buddy Josh McKenty, I spoke with my buddy Baruch at the San Francisco Java User Group on Monday, will speak with my buddy Matt Raible at the Denver Java User Group on Wednesday (don't miss it!), and will speak in Saint Louis on Thursday and Hartford on Friday. It's going to be a fun week and if you're around, don't hesitate to say hi.
As usual, we've got a lot to cover this week so let's get to it!
- The DISID corporation has announced Spring Roo 2.0.0.M3. This release includes improved entity entity relationship support, master-detail views generation, easily-created DTOs, default queries using QueryDSL in custom Spring Data repositories, smarter security integration, renewed Spring Web Flow support, REST-API scaffolding, and so much more!
- Last week, continuing the Spring Tips series, I looked at two dashboard options for Spring Boot and Spring Cloud-based applications
- Kroger gave a great developer tools talk at SpringOne Platform 2016 about how to take my one of my favorite places on the internet - Initialzr and made it their own.
