Using Spring Cloud programmatically

Engineering | Ramnivas Laddad | July 29, 2014 | ...

In the last blog, I showed you how to use Spring Cloud's Java configuration option to obtain service connectors declaratively (there is also XML namespace support, if you need it). In this blog, we will take a closer look at how you would use Spring Cloud programmatically. This will help in the situations where you cannot use Java or XML configuration. It will also demystify how Spring Cloud works and prepare for the next blog in this series, where we discuss extending Spring Cloud.

To work with Spring Cloud we need to access an object of the Cloud class. However, you can’t create a Cloud object directly (its constructor is not public). Instead, you will obtain it through CloudFactory

Spring Framework 4.1 -- Spring MVC Improvements

Engineering | Rossen Stoyanchev | July 28, 2014 | ...

Recently Juergen Hoeller announced the availability of the first of two 4.1 release candidates. Brian Clozel followed up with a post on the static web resources handling enhancements. Previously Stephane Nicoll blogged about cache and JMS related improvements. The goal of this post is to summarize Spring MVC improvements.

The JDK 1.8 java.util.Optional is now supported for @RequestParam, @RequestHeader and @MatrixVariable controller method arguments while ListenableFuture is supported as a return value alternative to DeferredResult where an underlying service (or perhaps a call to AsyncRestTemplate) already returns…

Pivotal Toronto Meetup: Production Grade Applications with Spring Boot

Engineering | Pieter Humphrey | July 25, 2014 | ...

Date: June 18, 2014

Location: Toronto, Canada

WARNING: Audio is not great, but hopefully tolerable :)

Spring Boot, the new convention-over-configuration centric framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring's flexibility with conventional, common sense defaults to make application development not just fly, but pleasant! Join Spring developer advocate Josh [email protected] for a look at what Spring Boot is, why it's turning heads, why you should consider it for your next application (REST,web, batch, big-data, integration, whatever!) and how to get started.

Spring Framework 4.1 - handling static web resources

Engineering | Brian Clozel | July 24, 2014 | ...

This week, Juergen announced the Spring Framework 4.1 release candidate. Now is the time to test those new features and see how they can make your applications better!

One of those new features is the flexible resolution and transformation of static web resources. Spring framework already allows you to serve static resources using ResourceHttpRequestHandlers. This feature gives you more power and new possibilities.

ResourceResolvers and ResourceTransformers

ResourceResolvers and ResourceTransformers are at the very core of this new feature.

ResourceResolvers can resolve resources, given their URL path. They can also resolve the externally facing public URL path for clients to use, given their internal resource path. ResourceTransformers

This Week in Spring - July 22nd, 2014

Engineering | Josh Long | July 23, 2014 | ...

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week we're at OSCON in beautiful Portland, OR! It's been a crazy busy week, and only figures to be busier! It's been nice visiting with colleagues and community members alike. The booth on the expo floor has been flooded with users. I love this show. :)

  1. First, the big news: the Spring framework 4.1 release candidate is now available! The new release features updated JSR-107 support, JMS 2.0 and annotation-centric JMS configuration, a SpEL compiler, and so much more.

Spring Framework 4.1 release candidate available

Releases | Juergen Hoeller | July 21, 2014 | ...

Dear Spring community,

It's my pleasure to announce that the first Spring Framework 4.1 release candidate is available now. Our 4.1 delivers a wide range of new features along the following themes:

Annotated JMS listener methods and support for JMS 2.0's shared subscriptions

As well as general alignment of Spring's JMS support with our spring-messaging module.

Comprehensive support for JCache (JSR-107) annotations and related features

Spring XD 1.0.0.RC1 Released

Releases | Mark Pollack | July 18, 2014 | ...

The Spring XD team is pleased to announce that Spring XD Release Candidate 1 is now available for download. You can also install Spring XD on OSX using homebrew and on RHEL/CentOs using yum.

Highlights of this release

  • Direct binding: Deployments can be configured to avoid modules sending data over the Message Bus if they are co-located in the same container. Using this option increases throughput and lowers latency but can not be applied to all deployment topologies.
  • Stream Deployment State: The state of stream is calculated throughout the lifetime of the deployment. For example, if a subset of the modules that comprise a stream have failed, the overall state of the stream changes from Deployed to Incomplete. Once the failures have been addressed, the state of the stream returns to Deployed.
  • Improved REST API

$text $search your Documents with Spring Data MongoDB

Engineering | Christoph Strobl | July 17, 2014 | ...

MongoDB officially has offered full text search capabilities since its 2.6 release. The feature ranks among the Top 5 most voted features for the server component and ships in its current version with numerous stemmers and parsers, phrase matching, negation and per field weights. So it's about time to give it a little love and share what's cooking in Spring Data's kitchen to support that feature.

For text indexing and searching MongoDB defaults the language to English, normalizing the text by tokenizing, removing common stop words and reducing words to their base. There's support for several…
