Engineering | Josh Long | November 13, 2018 | ...

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I've just flown from Singapore and arrived in Hong Kong where I'll be meeting with some of our bigger customers here for a few days. Then, it's off to Taipei where, among other things, I'll be presenting at the Taipei JUG and talking to some customers. If you're in any of these places, don't hesitate to reach out and say hi (@starbuxman)!

With that, we've got a ton to get to so let's get to it!

Spring Boot in a Container

Engineering | Dave Syer | November 08, 2018 | ...

Many people are using containers to wrap their Spring Boot applications, and building containers is not a simple thing to do. This is an article for developers of Spring Boot applications, and containers are not always a good abstraction for developers - they force you to learn about and think about very low level concerns - but you will on occasion be called on to create or use a container, so it pays to understand the building blocks. Here we aim to show you some of the choices you can make if you are faced with the prospect of needing to create your own container.

We will assume that you know how to create and build a basic Spring Boot application. If you don’t, go to one of the Getting Started Guides, for example the one on building a REST Service. Copy the code from there and practise with some of the ideas below. There is also a Getting Started Guide on Docker
