SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Where Does Apache Geode Fit in CQRS Architectures?

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016. Speaker: Eitan Suez Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/where-does-apache-geode-fit-in-cqrs-architectures

In this talk, Eitan Suez will explore the question: Where does Geode fit in an organization's system architecture? Geode is a unique and feature-rich product that perhaps hasn't seen as much adoption as it deserves. Today's apps are no longer the straightforward, database-backed web applications we used to build a few years ago. Applications have become more sophisticated, as they've had to meet the need to scale, to be reliable, fault…

News | Pieter Humphrey | January 03, 2017 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016. Speaker: Dieter Hubau Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/writing-your-own-spring-boot-starter

Anyone who is actively using Spring must have heard of Spring Boot by now. It is the current de facto standard tool to start with a new Spring project and will become even more prevalent over the coming years. Next to an easy to use interface at start.spring.io and very good documentation, there are a ton of so called Spring Boot Starters which a developer can use to jumpstart their development. While the auto-configuration and starters often seem to…

Spring AMQP 1.7 RC1 available now

Releases | Artem Bilan | December 28, 2016 | ...

On behalf of the Spring Integration team I’d like to announce the first (and final) Release Candidate of Spring AMQP 1.7, which is available in the Milestone Repository.

This release is mainly an intermediate between version 1.6.x and 2.0 for Spring Boot 1.5 and IO Platform Brussels compatibility.

Anyway there are several improvements and new features to explain here:

  • Upgrade to Amqp Client 4.0 with appropriate RabbitConnectionFactoryBean changes

  • Upgrade to Log4j 2.7 and required braking change fix for the log4j2.AmqpAppender

  • Upgrade to Spring Retry 1.2 with important StatefulRetryOperationsInterceptor.setUseRawKey(true) for backward compatibility

  • a new spring-rabbit-junit artifact is provided with several utilities (like BrokerRunning @Rule) which can be useful for testing Spring AMQP applications

  • The SimpleMessageListenerContainer can now be started without queues to listen to at all. They can be provided later at runtime via addQueues()

  • a ConnectionNameStrategy is provided for the ConnectionFactory to allow to identify application connections in the Broker or other monitoring and tracing tools

This Year in Spring - 2016 edition

Engineering | Josh Long | December 28, 2016 | ...

Welcome to a very special This Week in Spring! Every year we wrap up with a recap of highlights from the year. This year's no different! It's been a heckuva year, and the Pivotal Spring and Cloud Foundry teams seem to deliver bigger and better tech every passing day. If you've been following This Week in Spring then you'll no doubt be aware of the changes! It's hard to keep up, even for me, with the dizzying pace of releases!

So, here are the top five things I'd encourage people to review from 2016:

  • Spring Boot: this year saw the release of Spring Boot 1.4 which in turn contains support for Spring Framework 4.3, Hibernate 5, Couchbase, Neo4J, and a slew of other niceties as discussed in the changelog. This year, in Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.9, Spring Boot enjoys even greater integration with the platform, with deep support for Spring Boot Actuators, among many other things being surfaces in the Apps Manager console. Also, the downloads for Spring Boot are through the roof, going from 2.4 million a month in November 2015 to 10.2 million a month in 201…
