SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Rethinking API Design with Traits

News | Pieter Humphrey | February 10, 2015 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Cédric Champeau

More Groovy Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/traits-design

Groovy 2.3 introduces the concept of traits in the language. Traits look like interfaces, but allow the developer to add both implementation and state into it. It introduces multiple inheritance in the language while avoiding the diamond problem. Traits will let you rethink the way you design APIs in Groovy, by favoriting composition of behaviors.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Building a Continuous Delivery Pipeline with Gradle and Jenkins

Engineering | Pieter Humphrey | February 10, 2015 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Peter Niederwieser

G&G Special Topics

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/continuous-delivery-with-gradle-and-jenkins

Getting software from a developer's machine to a production environment without a fully automated process is time-consuming and error-prone. Continuous Delivery enables building, testing and deploying of software through build pipelines with well-defined quality gates. In this session, we will discuss how to build such a pipeline with the help of Gradle and Jenkins. With Jenkins as the centerpiece of our build pipeline, we will model our way from build to deployment. We will start by introducing an examplary application and learn how to build it with Gradle. Step by step, we will touch on topics like automating unit, integration and functional tests, incorporating popular code quality tools, as well as packaging, publishing and deploying the deliverable.

This Week in Spring - February 10th, 2015

Engineering | Josh Long | February 10, 2015 | ...

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring!

If you're in the bay area this week, I'll be speaking at the Netflix OSS meetup in Los Altos talking about Spring Cloud on Wednesday and at Pivotal San Francisco's Open-Source Hub on the amazing Spring Session project on Thursday. I hope you'll join me for either or both! It's sure to be fun!

As usual, we've got a lot to cover, so let's get to it!

  1. My pal (and Spring Boot co-founder!) Phil Webb and I gave the introduction to Spring Boot lesson at SpringOne2GX 2014 - check it out! Hopefully you'll have as much fun as we did! :)
  2. DZone have published two nice Developers of the Week profiles, one for the good Dr. Dave Syer and one for Spring Batch lead Michael Minella
  3. Adib Saikali put together a really nice article on InfoQ introducing the ways that Java 8 and Spring 4 win.
  4. Readers of this roundup will know that I love me some JHipster, and so I am super excited to have JHipster founder Julien Dubois

Introducing JHipster

Engineering | Josh Long | February 09, 2015 | ...

This post is a guest post by community member Julien Dubois (@juliendubois), a former SpringSource employee who now works for Ippon Technologies and is creator of the JHipster project. Thanks Julien! I'd like to see more of these guest posts, so - as usual - don't hesitate to ping me (@starbuxman)! -Josh

the JHipster


JHipster, or "Java Hipster," is a handy application generator that will create for you a Spring Boot (that's the Java part) and AngularJS (that's the hipster part) application.

In a very short amount of time, JHipster has became very popular on Github, and it has been featured on online magazines - like InfoQ, Infoworld or SD Times - and in conferences all over the world - Paris, London, Montreal…

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: RESTful Grails 2

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Jeff Scott Brown

Essential Grails Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/res-tful-grails2

Grails 2 includes a lot of features and functionality related to building RESTful services. These include an entirely new and more flexibile data binding system, runtime and compile time metaprogramming which greatly reduce the amount of code required in your RESTful services, a rich set of content negotiation tools and more.
