Webinar: A Comprehensive Spring Showcase: Personal Cloud Storage Application

Speaker: Erdem Gunay, Turkcell

Turkcell launched a personal cloud storage service few years ago. Adding new business features was costly in terms of time and budget on the legacy solution. The user experience needed to be improved. Finally, it was decided to build a new solution where Spring Boot and Spring Framework projects play crucial role as the backbone. The project was completed just in 6 months starting from scratch. The solution was built on top of Spring Boot and many Spring IO Platform projects, allowing the development team focus on business logic instead of configuration & integration details. The project has been divided into deployable modules (API, backend, migration, test automation) accessing micro services that are responsible for one task only. Join Erdem for a review of the migration effort and new architecture - all enabled by Spring Boot.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Migrating to Spring 4 from Spring 3 - What you need to know

Migrating to Spring 4 from Spring 3 - What you need to know

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Phillip Verheyden

Applied Spring Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/upgrade-tospring4

In this talk we will cover what it takes to migrate a Spring 3.x application to Spring 4. Some of the questions that we will answer: What improvements does Spring 4 offer over Spring 3 and why should I invest in upgrading? What do I do with all of my current XML configuration? What about dependent library upgrades like Hibernate and Jackson? Part of this talk will focus on updating a specific application based on Spring 3 up to date with Spring 4 and the latest in best practices and design.

Webinar: Debug and Maintain your Spring Boot App

Speaker: Greg Turnquist

So you have decided to build an application using Spring Boot? Sooner or later, something will go wrong. It does not matter how experienced we are. How will Spring Boot help us figure out what went wrong and fix things? This talk introduces lots of tools to help us debug and manage "bootiful" apps. You will learn how to use Boot's autoconfiguration report, override Boot's settings & beans, create custom metrics/health checks/app info, and create custom JMX info & custom CRaSH commands.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Performance Testing Crash Course

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Dustin Whittle

Applied Spring Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/performance-testing-crashcourse

The performance of your application affects your business more than you might think. Top engineering organizations think of performance not as a nice-to-have, but as a crucial feature of their product. Those organizations understand that performance has a direct impact on user experience and, ultimately, their bottom line. Unfortunately, most engineering teams do not regularly test the performance and scalability of their infrastructure. Dustin Whittle shares the latest performance testing tools and insights into why your team should add performance testing to the development process. Learn how to evaluate performance and scalability on the server-side and the client-side with tools like Siege, Bees with Machine Guns, Google PageSpeed, WBench, and more. Take back an understanding of how to automate performance and load testing and evaluate the impact it has on performance and your business.

Webinar: Improving your (legacy) Application with Spring

Speakers: Marten Deinum

Spring has been around since the release of “J2EE Design and Development” in 2002. Spring and Java have evolved quite a bit since that time. In those years a lot of applications have been developed. All those "legacy" applications that are around have proven their value and that is why they lasted. In this session we will explore how we can improve our legacy applications by doing some refactoring or redesign (component based development) but also by introducing (newer) Spring IO technologies.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Building highly modular and testable business systems with Spring Integration

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Marius Bogoevici

Data / Integration Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/building-modular-business-applications

By its very nature, Spring Integration allows for building sophisticated business systems that aggregate multiple sources of data and orchestrate a complex set of business services. But complex functionality doesn’t have to translate into complex design. In fact, through its emphasis on low coupling, Spring Integration is fostering a highly modular application design, with huge benefits in terms of understandability, reusability and testability. In this session you will learn how to design your Spring Integration applications in a modular fashion, by grouping together logically-related components into subsystems that interact with each other, a core concept of Spring XD, but can be successfully applied in any application. Besides the benefit of a heightened level of abstraction, this approach has a number of other important benefits as well: first, such subsystems are reusable, and, secondly, and equally important, they can be tested in isolation. So, after a brief discussion on reusability, the presentation will focus on how to unit test such subsystems and even complete Spring Integration applications, with the ultimate goal of applying business-centric techniques such as Behaviour-Driven Development.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Server-side JavaScript with Nashorn and Spring

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Topher Bullock, Will Tran

Web / JavaScript Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/serverside-javascript-with-nashorn-and-spring

To stay competitive, enterprises are scrambling to find ways to rapidly deliver applications that are a pleasure to use on a wide range of devices. Microservice architectures, continuous delivery and the cloud can give businesses the agility to transform into great software businesses, but how do you actually turn those buzzwords into reality? Here we present our take on a solution. Using Spring Boot, Java 8’s Nashorn JavaScript engine, and Cloud Foundry, we’ve created a framework that makes it really easy to deliver API’s to support the rich and highly contextualized experiences that users expect in world class applications. We’d like to share with you what we’ve built, and what we’ve learned along the way.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Efficient Client-Server Communication with Differential Synchronization and JSON Patch

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Brian Cavalier

Web / JavaScript Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/efficient-clientserver-communication-with-differential-synchronization-and-json-patch

The world of client-server has changed. The traditional application of REST is no longer the best fit. We're depolying applications into a world where users expect responsive UIs, on all their devices, even while disconnected. We're deploying into a world where connection latency, mobile radio usage and battery life have become primary concerns. Differential Synchronization (DS) is an algorithm that syncs data across N parties, even in the face of dropped connections, offline devices, etc. It makes more efficient use of connections by batching and sending only changes, in both directions, from client to server and from server to client. We’ll look at how it can be used with JSON Patch to synchronize application data between clients and servers over HTTP Patch, WebSocket, and STOMP, and how it can be integrated into the Spring ecosystem.
