SpringOne2GX 2014 Replay: Developer Tooling - What’s New and What’s Next

News | Pieter Humphrey | November 17, 2014 | ...

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2014.

Speakers: Andy Clement, Martin Lippert

Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/developer-tooling-whats-new-and-whats-next

In this talk we take a look at the latest changes and new features of the Spring Tool Suite, the Eclipse-based IDE that comes packed with support for Spring, Groovy, Grails, Gradle, AspectJ, and Cloud Foundry. We dive into the new ways the tooling makes it easy and convenient to develop enterprise applications that are based on Spring Boot and how the Spring Tool Suite integrates will all the different parts of Spring IO. In addition to that we will show the Java8 language tooling that comes as part of the Spring Tool Suite and demonstrate how to get the most out of Java8 in your projects. In the second part of this presentation we take a look at our vision for how we are going to move developer tooling itself into the cloud era. We provide a sneak peek under the hood of what we are working on for the next generation of developer tooling. We will demonstrate what future cloud-based developer might look like, how real Java language tooling can look and feel when running in a browser-based code editor, and show how every developer can smoothly migrate into this new world of cloud-based developer tooling. All this is based on Flux, a new project at eclipse.org, that aims at providing new and innovative ways to move towards cloud-based tooling in a smooth, seamless way.

There is a good amount of excitement about the new version of Java. The big evolution of course is the lambda expressions. In this presentation we will dive into the language features in Java 8, take a look at some of their nuances, and look at ways to put them to good use. In addition to looking at lambdas we will also dive into the Streams capabilities and also some of the features in Java 8 that make all these possible.

Building a Spring Integration 4.1 WebSocket Endpoint

Engineering | Pieter Humphrey | November 15, 2014 | ...

By Josh Long

Spring Integration 4.1 was just released and it includes a lot of great new features! One of my favorites? Smart integration with the Spring 4 WebSocket support. Now you can compose a integration flow whose final destination is a WebSocket client. There is also support for acting as the client to a WebSocket service.

In order to compile it, you will need Java 8 (we make heavy use of lambdas here) and the following Maven dependencies:

  • groupId:org.springframework.integration, artifactId:spring-integration-java-dsl, version: 1.0.0.RC1.
  • groupId:org.springframework.integration, artifactId:spring-integration-websocket, version: 4.1.0.RELEASE.
  • groupId:org.springframework.boot, artifactId:spring-boot-starter-websocket, version: 1.2.0.RC1.

Webinar: Using Reactor for asych/non-blocking microservices

News | Pieter Humphrey | November 13, 2014 | ...

Speaker: Stephane Maldini, Pivotal

What is the role of asynchronous, non-blocking style-communication in microservices? Join Stephane Maldini for a revealing look at why reactive components are so important in an eventually-consistent approach like microservice architecture. When services own their data and are completely independent, having a (reactive) abstraction layer can perform a variety of roles. Being able to parallelize resources a microservice owns is an important technique. Another might be as an event bus, pulling state data from various micro services dynamically, checking against the cached, fairly up-to-date local copy. While a microservice has “all” the data it needs from other services to respond to a request, this data is not necessarily up-to-date—an important constraint to be prepared to accept. Stephane will also discuss other async use cases outside of microservices and how www.reactive-streams.org protocol support allows levels of portability across vendor implementations.
