SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Booting up Spring Social

News | Pieter Humphrey | January 26, 2015 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speaker: Craig Walls

Applied Spring Track

In recent years, people are using social networks like Facebook and Twitter to connect, meet, and share experiences and ideas. But it's not just people making connections; modern applications are also leveraging the APIs provided by the social networks to connect with their users and customers. It's hard to find applications these days that aren't somehow connected to their users via social APIs. Spring Social is an extension to the Spring Framework that enables you to create applications that connect with APIs. With it, your application can offer social login, learn about its users' interests, and inject itself into their social graph. In this session, we'll take a look at the latest that Spring Social has to offer, including integration with Spring Security, automatic reconnect, and a dramatically simpler configuration model using Spring Boot.

Speaker: Roman Shaposhnik

Big Data Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/hadoop-201-deeper-into-the-elephant

This session expands on the previous year's "Hadoop: Just the Basics for Big Data Rookies", diving deeper into the details of key Apache Hadoop projects. We will start with a brief recap of HDFS and MapReduce, then discuss more advanced features of HDFS, in addition to how YARN has enabled businesses to massively scale their systems beyond what was previously possible. We will then discuss Apache HBase, the non-relational database modeled after Google's BIg table, review the data model, architecture, and common use cases. By the end of this session, you will learn how these three core Hadoop projects are used to solve even the most challenging Big Data problems.


This Week in Spring - January 20th, 2015

Engineering | Josh Long | January 20, 2015 | ...

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week's roundup could've just as easily been titled, This Week in Spring Videos and Webinars, because we've got a lot of them!

  1. The good Dr. Dave Syer continues his series introducing Spring Security and Angular.js integration, this time looking at breaking apart the resource server from the authorization server. This post looks
  2. Our pal Nicoalas Frankel is back at it! Nicolas lives in both the Vaadin and the Spring communities. So, naturally, when Petter Holmström and I started the Vaadin4Spring project at the beginning of 2014, we weren't surprised when Nicolas started making great contributions. His latest contribution introduces an elegant implementation of the MVP pattern for Vaadin and he's written a very nice introduction to it

Webinar: Spring XD - A Platform for data at scale and developer productivity

News | Pieter Humphrey | January 20, 2015 | ...

Speakers: Mark Pollack, Mark Fisher, Sabby Anandan

Worried about Big Data and the challenges inherent in making a real application? You don’t have to worry anymore! Spring XD provides a one-stop shop solution that spans traditional enterprise to Big Data use cases - both batch and streaming. It's important to choose the right tool for each use-case, which is why Spring XD integrates with technologies such as Spark, Reactor and RxJava to demonstrate the flexibility and the unified programming model to support complex data computation use-cases. In this webinar, we'll show you how to develop data-driven use cases much faster than other big data solutions on the out of the box XD runtime.

Webinar: Introducing Spring Session

News | Pieter Humphrey | January 20, 2015 | ...

Speaker: Josh Long, Pivotal

Back in the era of the application server, HTTP Session replication was a common way to scale out user session data, as well as make it fault tolerant. In today's world of lightweight containers, PaaS, and virtualization, Spring Session offers a 100% server and/or container portable HTTP Session. See how Spring Session easily plugs in implementations like Redis, scales out across a cluster, handles multiple users' browser sessions, works with WebSocket, and allows header based authentication within REST apps. It's a perfect fit for working with user data, particularly in a highly distributed environment like the cloud, or on a Platform like Cloud Foundry.

Webinar: Documenting RESTful APIs

News | Pieter Humphrey | January 20, 2015 | ...

Speaker: Andy Wilkinson, Pivotal

An API's documentation is a vital part of making it easy to understand and easy to use. RESTful APIs are no different. In this webinar we'll look at what should be included in your RESTful API's documentation and, just as importantly, what should be omitted. To illustrate this we'll look at some real-world examples of good and bad API documentation. We'll look at some of the problems and limitations of choosing a tool like Swagger to produce your API's documentation and conclude by looking at some alternatives that are better-suited to producing documentation that your users will love.

The Resource Server: Angular JS and Spring Security Part III

Engineering | Dave Syer | January 20, 2015 | ...

Note: the source code and test for this blog continue to evolve, but the changes to the text are not being maintained here. Please see the tutorial version for the most up to date content.

In this article we continue our discussion of how to use Spring Security with Angular JS in a "single page application". Here we start by breaking out the "greeting" resource that we are using as the dynamic content in our application into a separate server, first as an unprotected resource, and then protected by an opaque token. This is the third 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, which is in two parts: one where the

Microservice Registration and Discovery with Spring Cloud and Netflix's Eureka

Engineering | Josh Long | January 20, 2015 | ...

The microservice style of architecture is not so much about building individual services so much as it is making the interactions between services reliable and failure-tolerant. While the focus on these interactions is new, the need for that focus is not. We've long known that services don't operate in a vacuum. Even before cloud economics, we knew that - in a practical world - clients should be designed to be immune to service outages. The cloud makes it easy to think of capacity as ephemeral, fluid. The burden is on the client to manage this intrinsic complexity.

In this post, we'll look at how Spring Cloud helps you manage that complexity with a service registry like Eureka and Consul and client-side…

SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Cassandra, Couchbase and Spring Data in the Enterprise

News | Pieter Humphrey | January 20, 2015 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Matthew Adams (SCI Spike), Michael Nitschinger (Couchbase)

Data / Integration Track

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/cassandra-couchbase-andspringdataintheenterprise

Spring Data Cassandra brings Cassandra support to the Spring Data umbrella of projects, offering Spring Data's familiar Repository concepts & POJO persistence. This talk will focus first on POJO persistence over Cassandra, including automatic Cassandra schema generation and Spring context configuration using both XML & Java. Then, the talk will dig deeper into some of the lower-level features that Spring Data Cassandra is built upon (AKA "Spring CQL"), which make plain, old Cassandra development simpler & easier. Couchbase Server is well-known as one of the leaders in the NoSQL space, heavily used in enterprises and startups alike where low latency even at hundreds of thousands of operations per seconds matters. This talk will not only give a short introduction about the benefits of adopting Couchbase, but also show how to integrate it into your Java Enterprise landscape through its support for Spring Data. You will learn how to fully control your database schema from the application through entities and repositories, how to deploy new application versions or scale out your cluster without a single second of downtime and also how to integrate easily with elasticsearch.
