SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Building a next-generation cloud e-commerce platform with Spring

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Presenter: Petar Tahchiev
Core Spring Track
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/boost-your-ecommerce-with-spring

What are the common pitfalls we need to be aware of when building an e-commerce application? How do we leverage Spring to tackle the complexity of the project and speed up the development time? How do we scale our spring application in order to support huge amounts of requests? Is it possible to bootstrap an e-commerce website in less than 5 minutes and deploy a production-ready instance to Cloud Foundry? What makes spring the perfect choice for an application framework, and how we have used it to solve our problems when building the Nemesis e-commerce platform. In this presentation we are going to discuss all those topics and we are going to make a real-life demonstration on a typical e-commerce project with the Nemesis platform. We are going to list the problems that every e-commerce application faces and we are going to go through most the projects from the Spring portfolio (Spring DATA, Spring Session, Spring Cloud, Spring Boot, Spring MVC, Spring Security, etc.) and demonstrate what business and technical value Spring brings to our customers. This is not a presentation on one particular Spring project, but instead a demonstration on the whole Spring eco-system, showing how all those projects can be integrated in a single project.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Who needs batch these days?

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.
Speakers: Gunnar Hillert, Michael Minella
Data / Integration Track
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/who-needs-batch
Stream processing gets quite a bit of the press these days. Projects like Spark, Samza/Kafka, Google Cloud Dataflow, Apache Flink, and Amazon Kinesis bring the question of can we accomplish what we need without a batch component. This talk will take a hard look at if we still need batch these days, what that might look like in a modern development platform, and where Spring fits into it all.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Spring Framework - the ultimate configuration battle

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.
Speakers: Viktor Gamov, Leonid Igolnik, Baruch Sadogursky
Core Spring Track
Slides: No slides all demo

Almost every major version of Spring framework introduced a new way to configure the context: XML, Annotations, Java Config, Groovy… What’s next, and, more important - why so many?! And how to know what to use and when? In this session Baruch, Viktor and Leonid will try to find the silver bullet, and you will have a chance to vote for the best feature implementations or even make a bet of the winner!

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Cloud Native Dataflow Orchestration

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.
Speakers: Mark Fisher & Patrick Peralta
Big Data Track
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/cloud-native-data-flow-orchestration

The Spring Cloud Stream and Spring Cloud Task projects provide a simple and powerful framework for creating cloud native data microservices for stream and batch processing. Each microservice in these distributed systems consists of a stand-alone Spring Boot application.

While it is possible to define data pipelines across these microservice apps manually, Spring Cloud Data Flow is an integrated orchestration layer that provides a highly productive deployment and management experience for development and ops. Streams and tasks are defined using the same DSL and shell/UI introduced with Spring XD. Furthermore, a pluggable runtime SPI allows Spring Cloud Data Flow to coordinate these applications across a variety of distributed runtime platforms including Apache YARN, Lattice, and Cloud Foundry.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Spring Integration Java DSL

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.
Presenter: Artem Bilan
Data & Integration
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-integration-java-dsl

Spring Integration Java DSL is an organic extension of the Spring Integration programming model providing an alternative to XML configuration with the fusion of Spring Framework Java & Annotation configuration support, Spring Integration EIP implementation and the Builder pattern.

In this session we will talk about the Spring Integration Java DSL fluent API and how it allows you to easily and quickly add integration capabilities to your application using only Spring Java configuration. We will also demonstrate the benefits that Java 8 Lambda support provides, and those additions over the core Spring Integration that the Spring Integration Java DSL implements. We will also discuss concerns and restrictions such as method-chain complexity, pre-Java 8 support etc.

Webinar Replay: Creating a PageRank Analytics Platform Using Spring Boot Microservices

Speaker: Kenny Bastani
Slides: https://speakerdeck.com/kbastani/creating-a-pagerank-analytics-platform-using-spring-boot-microservices
Guided Tutorial from webinar content: http://www.kennybastani.com/2016/01/spring-boot-graph-processing-microservices.html
Reference Application from Webinar: https://github.com/kbastani/spring-boot-graph-processing-example
Graph processing platform: https://github.com/neo4j-contrib/neo4j-mazerunner

This webinar introduces you to a sample application that combines multiple microservices with a graph processing platform to rank communities of users on Twitter. The problem we’re going to solve is how to discover communities of influencers on Twitter using a set of seed profiles as inputs. To solve this problem without a background in machine learning or social network analytics might be a bit of a stretch, but we’re going to take a stab at it using a little bit of computer science history. We’re going to use a collection of popular tools as a part of this article’s sample application. The tools we’ll use, in the order of importance, will be: Spring Boot, Neo4j, Apache Spark, Docker, RabbitMQ. While there are some missing pieces, such as securing REST API access, and mapping device volumes to the containers, these kinds of important topics will be covered in future webinars.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Hands on Spring Security 4.1

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Presenter: Rob Winch
Core Spring Track
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/hands-on-spring-security-41

It can be complicated learning the ins and outs of any technology stack. When this complexity is compounded by needing to understand how to secure our applications, it can be daunting.

In this talk we will discuss how to rapidly and correctly apply Spring Security to an existing application. Along the way we will demo security exploits and see how to mitigate them, answer frequently asked questions, and learn established best practices.
