Goodbye Spring IDE - Welcome Spring Tools 4

On August 31 of 2004, only a few months after version 1.0 of the Spring Framework itself got released, Torsten Jürgeleit created a repository and made the initial commits to a project that became the tooling support for Spring in Eclipse, the Spring IDE project (while the roots of that work are probably going back further in time, as the comment of the first commit to the repository reads like there was a CVS repository even before that time.). Shortly after, Christian Dupuis joined, led the project for many years and initiated the Spring Tool Suite on top of Spring IDE.

This Week in Spring - June 14th, 2022

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I’ve just arrived in beautiful Berlin, Germany, for the forthcoming We Are Developers show with more than five thousand attendees. I was in Toronto, Canada, for the epic SpringOne Tour installment there. I’ve also had the privilege of taking these last two trips with my daughter, Kimly. She’s on summer break from school. It’s made the long miserable hours in economy bearable, and something for which I couldn’t be more grateful. I’m also looking forward to being at the upcoming SpringOne Tour installment in New York City, later this month. Don’t miss it!

This Week in Spring - June 7th, 2022

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I’ve just landed in tantalizing Toronto, Canada, for the SpringOne Tour Toronto show. I’m so excited to be here, at long last, after so long away from one of my favorite countries. I’ll be doing two talks - my usual, Kubernetes Native Java, and a talk on building Kubernetes Controllers (a.k.a. “Operators”) using the official Kubernetes Java client, Spring Boot, and Spring Native with my amazing friend and teammate Tiffany Jernigan, who you may recall was on the podcast not too long ago.

Spring Tips: Learn Spring for GraphQL (parts 1 and 2 of an ongoing series)

Hi, Spring fans! In thi^^^ these installments, we begin a new series introducing the Spring for GraphQL project.

In this first installment, GraphQL Java lead Andi Marek (@andimarek) and I (@starbuxman) look at the basics of using the GraphQL Java engine that underpins Spring for GraphQL.

In this second installment, Andi and I are joined by Spring for GraphQL lead Rossen Stoyanchev (@rstoya05) as we look at using the Spring for GraphQL component model by writing queries.

I know it’s been more than a month since we last published a video, so I’m going to be releasing every episode of this series very quickly, over the next week or two. I’ve already recorded and mostly finished producing eight episodes. I’m working on producing a ninth, and that’ll be that! A complete introduction to all things Spring for GraphQL. These are of course part of the usual Spring Tips playlist on YouTube, but also part of the Learn Spring for GraphQL with Josh Long playlist. Follow that one to be notified of any new episodes!
