Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I am in beautiful Barcelona, Spain, this week, ahead of the upcoming Spring I/O show. I just spent a wonderful week in amazing England, meeting old friends, speaking at Devoxx UK, etc.

This Week in Spring - May 10th, 2022

Hi, Spring fans! I'm writing this from - I can't believe I get to say this - abroad! I'm in London, UK! Now, this is not particularly noteworthy for those millions who already live here. But I don't live here. I'm a visitor! I live in San Francisco. I had to fly here! On a plane! With other people! ACROSS THE OCEAN. This is my first international flight since March of 2020, and I couldn't be more excited to be here for Devoxx UK and also just to catch up with old friends I haven't seen in nearly three years. If you know me, and how I used to travel, you'll appreciate how odd it is for me to be…

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How are you doin'?

I'm excited! This week I'm speaking at the ArabJUG, and I'll be speaking at Microsoft's huuuge JDConf event. Both of these are virtual. Then, next Monday, I'm on a plane bound for London, UK, where I'll be speaking at Devoxx UK 2022. Then, not even two weeks later, I'll be speaking at Spring IO, in Barcelona, Spain! Then a week later, I'll be speaking at JNation, in Lisbon, Portugal. To say that I am excited would be an understatement, my friends.

And all of that ignores the great stuff since last week…

Ever wanted to rewrite a query in Spring Data JPA?

Engineering | Greg L. Turnquist | May 02, 2022 | ...

Sometimes, no matter how many features you try to apply, it seems impossible to get Spring Data JPA to apply every thing you’d like to a query before it is sent to the EntityManager.

With 3.0.0-SNAPSHOT (and targeted for the next milestone release train of Spring Data), you now have the ability to get your hands on the query, right before it’s sent to the EntityManager and "rewrite" it. That is, you can make any alterations at the last moment.

Check it out below:

Example 1. Declare a QueryRewriter using @Query

public interface MyRepository extends JpaRepository<User, Long> {


This Week in Spring - April 26th, 2022

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I was hoping to be in glorious Chicago, Illinois for the first in-person SpringOne Tour installment since the pandemic. But, alas, I couldn't go because - out of an abundance of caution, and since I was exposed to COVID19 in Atlanta, GA - it was thought to be safer to keep some folks home and virtual. Sigh. This policy makes perfect sense and it's what I wanted. But it's still a smidge disappointing to not be there. I miss y'all! It was fun at least doing a remote presentation.

Anyway, without further ado, let's…
