Modularizing the Client: Angular JS and Spring Security Part VII

Engineering | Dave Syer | May 13, 2015 | ...

In this article we continue our discussion of how to use Spring Security with Angular JS in a "single page application". Here we show how to modularize the client-side code, and how to use "nice" URL paths without the fragment notation (e.g. "/#/login") which Angular uses by default, but most users dislike. This is the seventh in a series of articles, and you can catch up on the basic building blocks of the application or build it from scratch by reading the first article, or you can just go straight to the source code in Github. We will be able to tidy up a lot of loose ends from the…

This Week in Spring - May 12, 2015

Engineering | Josh Long | May 12, 2015 | ...

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week, I'm in Chicago, IL, for the spectacular GOTO conference, Chicago edition. If you're in the Chicago area, ping me on Twitter (@starbuxman). Cloud Foundry Summit just wrapped today as 1500 people came together to talk about the community and the technology. Spring made a strong showing, even getting a general session shoutout from James Watters for Spring Boot passing 1 Million downloads in April.

Now, without further ado..

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: API Abstraction and API Chaining in Grails

News | Pieter Humphrey | May 12, 2015 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Owen Rubel

Essential Grails Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/api-abstraction

API abstraction is the separation of cross cutting concerns related to the api to better enable externalization to architectural concerns. Not only does this enable easier externalization, synchronization and sharing of the environment with external architecture but this also enables us to reload the api configuration on the fly, have DRY'r code, easier batching, api chaining, reduced code, synchronized configuration/security, reduced throughput and much more.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Dive into Single-Page Application with RaveJS and Grails

News | Pieter Humphrey | May 12, 2015 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Fabrice Matrat

Essential Grails Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/dive-into-spa-with-grails-and-rave-js

See how this server-side guy fell in love with client-side application development when he discovered that his years of Grails experience already taught him how to be a great JavaScript developer. We'll explore how advanced architectural libraries, such as cujoJS and RaveJS, provide parallels to many of the concepts you love in Grails.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: The Future of Gradle - The Ultimate Build System

News | Pieter Humphrey | May 12, 2015 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Hans Dockter, Gradleware

More Groovy Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/the-future-of-gradle-the-ultimate-build-system

We are convinced that Gradle is already the best available enterprise build system. Yet we are far from done. We have finally the R&D bandwidth to deeply improve Gradle in the areas where it lacks. We also have the bandwidth to contribute some fundamental innovation to the domain of build and continuous delivery. All this will bring Gradle much closer to our vision of Gradle being the ultimate build system. We start by giving an overview of where Gradle is currently in the build system market when it comes to features and adoption. We will then talk about the next generation multi-platform dependency management. A dependency management that can fully capture the requirements of Android, JavaScript and the native domain as well as to improve the dependency management for the Java world. We will talk about how Gradle will dramatically improve the performance by introducing global caches and other optimizations. Finally we will talk about the new Gradle extendability model and its upcoming native and Javascript support.

New in STS 3.7.0: Spring Boot Yaml Editor

Engineering | Kris De Volder | May 11, 2015 | ...

In STS 3.6.4 we introduced ".properties" editor support, for editing Spring Boot configuration properties.

Soon thereafter, people started asking about support for ".yml" files as well. We are proud to say that the ".yml" support is now reality.

Check out the 5 minute video demo to see this in action:

The Spring Boot Yaml editor is built on top of YEdit. STS adds boot-specific content-assist, validation, hover-infos and hyperlink detectors.

It can be tried out today from STS's nightly update site and is planned to be released as part of STS 3.7.0 near the end of June 2015.

We are pleased to announce that Gradle dependency management plugin 0.5.1.RELEASE is now available from Maven Central, Bintray, and the Gradle Plugin Portal. For more information about how the plugin can improve your Gradle builds, please read the introductory blog post.

This maintenance release fixes an issue with the support for Maven-style exclusions. In addition, 0.5.0 introduced a new task, dependencyManagement, that you can use to diagnose your project's dependency management. More details can be found in the project's README.
