SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Developer Experience with Spring Cloud

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.

Speakers: Dr. Dave Syer, Spencer Gibb

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/developer-experience-with-spring-cloud

So you’ve decided to go cloud native. You’ve got a number of microservices that your company builds and runs. They interact with each other in various ways. You’ve got testing and staging and production environments that may have taken a lot of effort to get right. How does an individual developer work on just one of those services without stomping on other developers using a shared environment? In this session we will explore a range of options for development, starting with deploying everything locally, through stubbing, to local development solution that allows a developer to run their service in their IDE and have the whole system interact on their local machine!

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Modern Java Component Design with Spring Framework 4.2

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speakers: Juergen Holler, Stephane Nicoll
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/modern-java-component-design-with-spring-framework-42
Spring’s programming and configuration model has a strong design philosophy with respect to application components and configuration artifacts. Spring’s annotation-based component story is fine-tuned for source code readability as well as consistency across an entire application’s codebase. This session presents selected Spring Framework 4 component model highlights, with a focus on the upcoming Spring Framework 4.2 and a selection of Java 8 enabled features, illustrated with many code examples and noteworthy design considerations.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Spring Cloud *: Exploring Alternative Spring Cloud Implementations

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speaker: Spencer Gibb
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-cloud-alternative-implementations-of-discovery-config-bus
In this session we will discuss the Spring Cloud abstractions and interfaces that an implementation might choose to implement: DiscoveryClient, LoadBalancerClient, Configuration and Bus. We will compare and contrast some target technologies and discus the tradeoffs and nuances of each, such as: netflix, consul, etcd, zookeeper and lattice. We will then show and demonstrate Spring Cloud implementations of those technologies.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: A How to Guide to Security in the PAAS Cloud

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speaker: John Field, Shawn McKinney
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/a-how-to-guide-to-security-in-the-paas-cloud
Most developers still deal with application security issues in isolation, without understanding the security of the "“full stack”". As a result, security is sometimes inconsistent, and can be seen as a barrier to moving applications to the cloud. The session will examine the security of a typical Java Web application in an enterprise deployment. We will then look at what needs to change when that secure Java application is “forklifted” into Cloud Foundry. Finally, we will look at the benefits of adopting cloud native security protocols, such as OAuth2 and SAML2. The journey will cover 5 common application security architecture patterns taken from real world customer problems. We will compare how the security integration patterns differ between a standalone application and a cloud native application. From legacy enterprise identity management integration to security for microservices, this technical session includes practical, hands-on guidance to properly implementing authentication, authorization, and confidentiality controls using Spring and Cloud Foundry. We have all heard of the idea of the “Full Stack” developer — someone who can understand the application up and down the whole stack. The goal of this session is to describe the full security stack and show how it differs between standalone deployments and a PAAS deployment.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Securing Microservices with Spring Cloud Security

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speaker: Will Tran
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/securing-microservices-with-spring-cloud-security-53170178
This talk will walk through the authentication and authorization scenarios that you may encounter once you start building out microservices. We’ll go over OAuth2, OpenID Connect, and how to leverage those standards with Spring Cloud Security, so you can build out secure services that can be easily consumed by both Spring and non-Spring clients.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Spring Boot Micro-services, Containers, and Kubernetes - How To

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speaker: Ray Tsang, Google
Slides: https://speakerdeck.com/saturnism/2015-springone-2gx-java-based-microservices-and-kubernetes-how-to
Join this session to learn how to create a Java-based microservice using Spring Boot, containerize it using Maven plugins, and subsequently deploy a fleet of microservices and dependent components such as Redis using Kubernetes. Spring Boot makes creating microservices fast and easy - when it comes to running a single instance. Like most Java application, the harder part is usually the clustering and fail-over configurations. First, we’ll go over how get started with Spring Boot, and, subsequently, using Maven plugins to generate and create Docker images during the build process. Next, we’ll go over some basic architecture and configurations, such as: - Configuring Spring Session - Using Redis as the session store - Testing the configuration locally with container linking - Tips and tricks for faster startup (/dev/./urandom is your friend) Finally, with the images, we’ll deploy the microservice into Kubernetes: - Defining pods and services - Linking microservices to Redis using Kubernetes - Perform rolling upgrades of the application - Canary new versions of the microservices into the fleet Best part - we can visualize all of these activities happening in Kubernetes.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Spring Boot for DevOps

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speaker: Nicholas Frankel
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-boot-for-devops
Spring Boot is a product from Spring, that provides many configuration defaults for a new Spring project, so that one can set up a project in minutes. However, this is only one of the many features of Spring Boot. One of its module also provides many important Non-Functional Requirements out-of-the-box: monitoring, metrics, exposing those over HTTP, etc. In this presentation, I’ll demo some of those, that will make DevOps more than a little happy.
Comments: DevOps that don’t know about Spring Boot should. Out-of-the-box features are priceless and include metrics, healthchecks, hearbeat and more.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: 12 Factor, or Cloud Native Apps for Spring Developers

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speaker: Cornelia Davis
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/12-factor-cloud-native-apps-for-spring-developers
The third platform, characterized by a fluid infrastructure where virtualized servers come into and out of existence, and workloads are constantly being moved about and scaled up and down to meet variable demand, calls for new design patterns, processes and even culture. One of the most well known descriptions of these new paradigms is the Twelve Factor App (12factor.net), which describes elements of cloud native applications. Many of these needs are squarely met through the Spring Framework, others require support from other systems. In this session we will examine each of the twelve factors and present how Spring, and platforms such as Cloud Foundry satisfy them, and in some cases we’ll even suggest that responsibility should shift from Spring to platforms. At the conclusion you will understand what is needed for cloud-native applications, why and how to deliver on those requirements.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Lattice: A Cloud-Native Platform for Your Spring Applications

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015
Speaker: Matt Stine
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/lattice-a-cloud-native-platform-for-your-spring-applications
Lattice is a cloud-native application platform that enables you to run your applications in containers like Docker, on your local machine via Vagrant. Lattice includes features like:
Cluster scheduling
HTTP load balancing
Log aggregation
Health management
Lattice does this by packaging a subset of the components found in the Cloud Foundry elastic runtime. The result is an open, single-tenant environment suitable for rapid application development, similar to Kubernetes and Mesos Applications developed using Lattice should migrate unchanged to full Cloud Foundry deployments.

SpringOne2GX 2015 replay: Getting Started with Spring Cloud

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2015.

Speakers: Dr. Dave Syer, Josh Long

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/getting-started-with-spring-cloud

Spring Cloud 1.0 is here! It offers a powerful way to create and consume microservices. As you introduce new services, you introduce integration problems: services can be shaky, they can disappear and - as they’re often exposed over HTTP - they require a bit more footwork than in-process method invocations. In this webinar, we’ll focus specifically on how Spring Cloud integrates service registration (e.g. Eureka), declarative REST clients (with Netflix’s Feign), reactive programming and the circuit breaker pattern with Hystrix to support easy, robust service-to-service invocations, and messaging microservices with Spring Cloud Stream. This is a deep dive on how to make connect and consume microservices, and is a natural next step after the introduction to building microservices with Spring Boot.
