SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: DDD & REST - Domain Driven APIs for the web

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.

While Domain Driven Design is supposed to take care of complexity in the very core of software, REST is usually treated a plain remoting technology. In this talk we’re going to explore some commonalities of the two when it comes to the design of both the domain and resources. We’re going to discover how a good domain design is essential to build a great REST API in the first place and which means REST provides to make your APIs more domain driven. From all of the building blocks of DDD, the talk identifies the ones most important when it comes to building a good REST API: we’re going to look at aggregates as natural boundaries for representations, repositories as the backing foundation for collection resources and how hypermedia allows to make domain specific state transitions explicit.

SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: From Imperative To Reactive Web Apps

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Rossen Stoyanchev

The reactive programming model involves a fundamental shift from imperative to non-blocking logic and understanding what that means on the most basic level is an essential and required first step. In this talk we’ll start by introducing reactive programming and discuss how it impacts application design. Then we’ll take a look at the building blocks from a Java developer’s perspective. Finally we’ll complete the picture by checking out the upcoming Spring 5 support for reactive web applications.

Vaadin Spring 1.1 - build web UIs that hook right to your Java backend

This post is a guest post by community member Matti Tahvonen (@MattiTahvonen), who works as a developer advocate in Vaadin Ltd, the company that originally developed Vaadin Framework and provides commercial services and extensions for it.

The first stable release of the official Spring integration library for Vaadin was released a bit over a year ago. The feedback has been great and many Spring developers, who have wanted to stay on the safe “backend side”, have discovered a new way to use their existing Java skills to build good-looking web UIs. Using Vaadin Spring, your UI code lives in Spring managed beans and the integration with your Spring based backend becomes trivial.
