Webinar Replay: What You Can Do With Hadoop: Building Big Data Applications with Hadoop & Spring

Speakers: Nikesh Shah, Mark Fisher, James Williams

At Pivotal we are bringing 2 open source projects together -- Hadoop and the very rapid and widely used Spring Java application development framework to help Big Data Applications. While Hadoop is proving to be the defacto foundation for storing and processing data, real-world scenarios require much more. Millions of developers are already using Spring to create high performing, easily testable, reusable code without any lock-in. Adding Spring into the Hadoop equation we take out the complexity of building big data applications. In this month's webinar we will explore how Spring XD (Xtreme Data) is addressing Big Data Application needs such as: High throughput distributed data ingestion into HDFS from a variety of input sources. Real-time analytics at ingestion time, e.g. gathering metrics and counting values. Hadoop workflow management via batch jobs. High throughput data export, e.g. from HDFS to a RDBMS or NoSQL database. This is a can't miss presentation for anyone wanting to understand design, configuration and deployment of Hadoop-powered applications.

Webinar Replay: Modern Component Design with Spring

Speaker: Juergen Hoeller

In recent years, the Spring Framework focuses on flexible and powerful Java-based configuration. This talk presents Spring as an annotation-oriented application framework, illustrating the rich set of features that Spring has to offer for modern component design. General component model trends will be discussed along with selected Spring feature highlights, such as standardized annotations for dependency injection, stereotypes, and declarative services such as validation and scheduling.

Webinar Replay: Building WebSocket Browser Applications with Spring

Speaker: Rossen Stoyanchev

Slides: https://github.com/rstoyanchev/webinar-websocket-spring

Code: https://github.com/rstoyanchev/spring-websocket-portfolio

So, you've written a "Hello world!" WebSocket application or perhaps even a chat sample. You're able to exchange messages even in pre-Servlet 3.1 containers and pre-IE 10 browsers (that don't yet support WebSocket) thanks to the SockJS protocol and Spring's support for it. However a message is a blank page that can have any content. Whatever message format you choose, proprietary or standard, both client and server need to understand it as well as distinguish different kinds of messages. You need support for the publish-subscribe pattern central to messaging applications so you can broadcast messages to one or more subscribers. You need to incorporate security, validation, and so on. In short you need to build a real-world application. If you're used to web applications (and Spring MVC annotated controllers) you are familiar with the foundation that HTTP provides including URLs (nouns), HTTP methods (verbs), headers, parameters, and others. Imagine building an application without HTTP, just a socket. WebSocket gives you this brand new, exciting capability -- full duplex, two-way communication -- yet you no longer have an application-level protocol. Can an entire application be built around a single Endpoint class processing all messages, assuming a single WebSocket connection between browser and server? Join Rossen Stoyanchev as he demonstrates that, thankfully, the WebSocket protocol has a built-in sub-protocol mechanism.

Nov 21st Webinar: Have You Seen Spring Lately?

Speaker: Josh Long

It's been an amazing year for Spring! 2013 saw the Spring family join Pivotal where - along with Cloud Foundry and our data driven technologies (the Pivotal HD Hadoop distribution, the GemFire data grid, and the RabbitMQ message broker) - Spring supports today's application workloads and profiles. Today's Spring embraces Java 8, Scala, Groovy, provides a best-in-class REST stack, supports the open web, mobile applications, big-data applications and batch workloads. Today's Spring is easy to get started with, easy to learn, and embraces conventions over configuration. Today's Spring is part of the Spring.IO platform. Today's Spring is...Pivotal. Join Spring developer advocate Josh Long as he re-introduces you to today's Spring, a Spring you may not have seen yet.

Nov 19th Webinar: Dynamic routing at 1 million per second with Spring Integration

Speakers: John Davies and Josh Long

While some of today's systems can hit μSec performance it usually take a lot of good design and optimisation. The solution is often hard-baked and inflexible and the end user still wants the flexibility promised by ESBs with dynamic routing based on runtime rules with transformations from one format to another. Josh and John will walk you through the latest in high performance message handling with Spring Integration covering non-XML (binary and CSV) data, code generation, on-the-fly compilation, dynamic routing and in-memory queries - an hour well spent.

Webinar replay: Spring Boot - Simplifying Spring for Everyone

Speaker: Phil Webb

Modern systems are no longer the monolithic deployments that they once were. The promise of true 'service oriented architecture' is finally here, and systems are now being composed from small, discrete, self contained units. But with more applications to write, and more deployments to manage, are you looking for something to help ease the pain? Are you fed up with searching stackoverflow for copy-paste configuration, do you want to write apps that can 'just run'? Perhaps you are just starting out with Spring and want a quick way to learn the basics without manually downloading and installing half the Internet?
