Spring Cloud 1.0.0.RC2 Available Now

Releases | Dave Syer | February 02, 2015 | ...

Spring Cloud 1.0.0.RC2 is available now in the http://repo.spring.io repository. There was a lot of activity pruning and curating dependencies, so users upgrading from RC1 might need to tweak their starter dependencies a bit, but hopefully we are all in a better place as a result. There were also a lot of changes in the Security features, making it easier to customize various parts of that, mainly in response to people actually using it and needing help (so thanks for the feedback). We will probably have an RC3 before the GA, but things are getting pretty close to ready.

Spring Security OAuth 2.0.6.RELEASE Available Now

Releases | Dave Syer | February 02, 2015 | ...

Spring Security OAuth 2.0.6.RELEASE is available now in the usual repositories. It's a bug fix release, and users of 2.0.5.RELEASE should upgrade. The only critical bug was for users of JWT with refresh tokens, and there were also some people experiencing double encoding of redirect uris, which is now fixed. Highlights of new features:

  • (Much requested) ability to have non-expiring refresh tokens with no customizations (just set the validity period to zero or less)

  • The /token endpoint only accepts POST requests by default

  • Resource servers do not accept cookie based authentication by default (you have to switch it on)

  • Resource server configuration has a few new options including the ability to inject custom error handlers

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Introduction to Spring for Apache Hadoop

News | Pieter Humphrey | February 02, 2015 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Thomas Risberg

Big Data Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/spring-one2gx-2014springforapachehadoop

Leverage your existing Java and Spring skills when making the jump to write applications and workflows for Apache Hadoop. In this presentation we will introduce the Spring for Apache Hadoop project and see how it can make developing workflows with Map Reduce, Hive and Pig jobs easier, while providing portability across ASF, Cloudera, HortonWorks, and Pivotal distros. We'll also look at integration with Spring XD, batch jobs and external data sources. In addition to all this we'll show how use a mini-cluster to test your new Hadoop workflows without having to deploy to a full cluster.

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Groovy, in the light of Java 8

Speaker: Guillaume LaForge

Core Groovy Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/groovy-in-thelightofjava8

With Java 8 out the door, Java developers can, at last, benefit from the long-awaited lambdas, to taste the newly-found functional flavor of the language. Streams are there to work more easily and efficiently with heaps of data. Those things are not new to developers acquainted with Groovy. But what is left to Groovy to make it attractive beyond all the aspects Java has caught up with Groovy?

Why 12 Factor Application Patterns, Microservices and CloudFoundry Matter

Engineering | Tim Spann | January 30, 2015 | ...

It seems like a lifetime ago, but a few short years ago I was leading a $100 million government project for a large system integrator that involved 50+ developers, 20+ testers, 15+ managers, 5+ ops and a cast of characters. Once a week we had to do our deploy.

Despite using Scrum, Cruise Control, SVN, Java, Eclipse, Guava, Google Guice, UML, JUnit, PMD, Findbugs, Checkstyle, MDD, TDD, eclEmma and mostly modern tools; our deploy process was a fragile, long, manual, person intensive process. Each Friday night we started. A long email thread began the process with a text check list that we…

Spring Data Evans SR 2 and Dijkstra SR 5 released

Releases | Oliver Drotbohm | January 28, 2015 | ...

On behalf of the Spring Data team I'd like to announce the availability of the second service release for Spring Data release train Evans as well as the fifth - and final one - of Spring Data Dijkstra.

The releases ship 191 tickets fixed, some of them quite significant bugfix and performance improvements and thus the releases recommended upgrades within the trains. The Dijkstra service release is planned to be the last one for that train. Users are recommended to upgrade to Evans as bug fixes will only be ported to that branch going forward.

Find all resolved tickets for Evans SR 2 here, all tickets for Dijkstra SR5 here. Up next is the first release candidate of the Fowler release train that already contains a few very interesting features
