Webinar: Using Reactor for asych/non-blocking microservices

News | Pieter Humphrey | November 13, 2014 | ...

Speaker: Stephane Maldini, Pivotal

What is the role of asynchronous, non-blocking style-communication in microservices? Join Stephane Maldini for a revealing look at why reactive components are so important in an eventually-consistent approach like microservice architecture. When services own their data and are completely independent, having a (reactive) abstraction layer can perform a variety of roles. Being able to parallelize resources a microservice owns is an important technique. Another might be as an event bus, pulling state data from various micro services dynamically, checking against the cached, fairly up-to-date local copy. While a microservice has “all” the data it needs from other services to respond to a request, this data is not necessarily up-to-date—an important constraint to be prepared to accept. Stephane will also discuss other async use cases outside of microservices and how www.reactive-streams.org protocol support allows levels of portability across vendor implementations.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Gaining Application Lifecycle Intelligence

News | Pieter Humphrey | November 10, 2014 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014 in Dallas, TX.

Speaker: Damien Dallimore, Splunk

Today we are facing an ever-increasing speed of product delivery. DevOps practices like continuous integration and deployment increase the dependence of systems like task tracking and source code repositories with build servers and test suites. With data moving rapidly through these different tools, it becomes challenging to maintain a grasp of the process, especially as the data is distributed and in a variety of formats. But it is still critical to maintain full visibility of the product development journey – from user stories to production data. By starting at the beginning of the Product Development Lifecycle, you can track a problem in production all the way back to the code that was checked into the build and the developer responsible for the code. In this session I'll demonstrate some of the ways in which Splunk software can be used to collect and correlate data throughout the various stages of the lifecycle of your code, to ultimately make you more efficient and make your code better.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Living in the Matrix with Bytecode Manipulation

News | Pieter Humphrey | November 09, 2014 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014

Speaker: Ashley Puls, New Relic

With Spring and Hibernate on your stack, your application's bytecode is likely enhanced or manipulated at runtime. This session examines three common byte code manipulation frameworks: ASM, CGLib, and Javassist (Java Programming Assistant). We will discuss how these tools work and why frameworks like Spring use them. You will learn enough to begin integrating these frameworks directly into your own code.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Tuning Large Scale Java Platforms

News | Pieter Humphrey | November 09, 2014 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Emad Benjamin, Jamie O'Meara

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/tuning-large-scale-java-platforms

The session will cover various GC tuning techniques, in particular focus on tuning large scale JVM deployments. Come to this session to learn about GC tuning recipe that can give you the best configuration for latency sensitive applications. While predominantly most enterprise class Java workloads can fit into a scaled-out set of JVM instances of less than 4GB JVM heap, there are workloads in the in memory database space that require fairly large JVMs. In this session we take a deep dive into the issues and the optimal tuning configurations for tuning large JVMs in the range of 4GB to 128GB. In this session the GC tuning recipe shared is a refinement from 15 years of GC engagements and an adaptation in recent years for tuning some of the largest JVMs in the industry using plain HotSpot and CMS GC policy. You should be able to walk away with the ability to commence a decent GC tuning exercise on your own. The session does summarize the techniques and the necessary JVM options needed to accomplish this task. Naturally when tuning large scale JVM platforms, the underlying hardware tuning cannot be ignored, hence the session will take detour from the traditional GC tuning talks out there and dive into how you optimally size a platform for enhanced memory consumption. Lastly, the session will also cover Pivotal Application Fabric reference architecture where a comprehensive performance study was done.

Webinar Replay: Security for Microservices with Spring and OAuth2

News | Pieter Humphrey | November 07, 2014 | ...

Speaker: Dave Syer

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/syer-microservicesecurity

OAuth2 is a lightweight security protocol that is well-suited for use with HTTP, the protocol at the heart of many modern architectures. Spring Security OAuth2 has a load of new features, not the least of which being the `@Configuration` support in version 2.0. Combine these with Spring Boot and you have a platform which can get you a secure HTTP service application in about 20 lines of code. This presentation shows how the combination of rapid development and production-ready features in the modern Spring stack are a perfect mixture for developing secure components in a system composed of microservices. We explore the new features in Spring OAuth2, guide you through the choice of which to use and when, and show how easy they are to enable quickly.

News | Pieter Humphrey | November 04, 2014 | ...

Speaker: Josh Long, Pivotal and Peter Lehto, Vaadin

It's been a long day, but you've done it: you've got a Spring Boot powered backend and now you need to build the UI that'll power the workforce and deliver next week. Vaadin, a UI framework that marries the ease of use of server-side Java and the rich, dynamic nature of client-side JavaScript, integrates well with Spring Boot and offers UI polish that would be hard to secure any other way. Join Spring developer advocate Josh Long and Vaadin evangelists for a look at how Vaadin and Spring Boot can get you to production quicker, and easier.
