SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Federated Queries with HAWQ - SQL on Hadoop and Beyond

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Presenter: Christian Tzolov
Big Data Track
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/federated-queries-with-hawq-sql-on-hadoop-and-beyond-53208753

In the space of Big Data, Pivotal offers two powerful data processing tools namely HAWQ and GemFire. HAWQ is a scalable OLAP SQL-on-Hadoop system, while GemFire is OLTP like, in-memory data grid and event processing system. This presentation will show different integration approaches that allow integration and data exchange between HAWQ and GemFire. The practical experience in applying Spring Boot and Spring XD for some of the use cases will be shared while walking you through the implementation of the different Integration strategies. Amongst other we will show an integration path that leverages SpringXD to ingest GemFire data and store it in HDFS as well as the benefits of using Spring Boot to implement REStful proxy for the HAWQ Web Table integration scenario.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Intro to Spring Boot for the Web Teir

Recorded at SpringOne2GX
Presenters: Stephané Nicoll & Brian Clozel
Web / Javascript Track
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-boot-for-the-web-tier-53204645

Only 2 years after its inception, Spring Boot is already very popular amongst Spring developers. If you’re familiar with Spring MVC, you may wonder how Spring Boot can improve your web development experience and how its internals work.

First we’ll go over the basics of a REST service powered by Boot. We’ll then gradually add more features that are typical to modern web applications. Along the way, we’ll see how Boot is helping us with front-end resources, security, error customization, template engines, embedded container configuration and devops features.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Developing cloud-native applications with the Spring Tool Suite

Recorded At SpringOne2GX 2015
Presenters: Kris De Volder & Martin Lippert
Core Spring Track
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/developing-cloud-native-applications-with-the-spring-tool-suite

In this session we will demonstrate how to work effectively with Spring projects in Eclipse and the Spring Tool Suite (STS). We will demo all the latest enhancements in the tools including features like much smarter property file editing. We will also demonstrate new features in the Eclipse 4.5 (Mars) platform. Going beyond basic application development we will look at how to build and work with systems composed of individual Spring applications that represent microservices. How to easily exploit Spring Cloud to address some common infrastructure issues that come up with this architecture, and we’ll show how to deploy these applications both locally and then remotely to Cloud Foundry, all from Eclipse. We’ll show off the new features of the Cloud Foundry Eclipse plugin including better support for Spring Boot apps, improved performance and full remote debugging for apps running on CF from your desktop Eclipse. For more rapid development of your cloud native applications in a ‘Cloud Foundry like’ environment on your local machine we will demonstrate deploying to Lattice from STS. Lattice (http://lattice.cf) is an open source project for running containerized workloads. Note: lattice.cf is being discontinued and is being replaced with MicroPCF https://github.com/pivotal-cf/micropcf

We have adopted a Contributor Code of Conduct!

We have an exciting announcement to make!

The Spring projects are about developing fast, flexible Java apps.

But there’s a driving force behind the technology—its people. We open-source our projects to welcome our community into making Spring the best it can be.

Now we are taking another step in that direction. Each of the active Spring projects has adopted a Contributor Code of Conduct! You can look at the contributor code of conduct right here, and you’ll find a copy in each of our repositories on Github.
