June 2015 – SDUG no longer meeting

Spring Dallas User Group will no longer be meeting.

Thanks to all the people who have given your time to make presentations, and to all who attended. While we all benefited and learned from each other since its inception, the pool of speakers we currently have to draw upon is not enough to meet every month. Javamug covers Spring as well as other java topics, so we will still be able to learn about the latest Spring topics. Again, thanks to all who donated their time to the group and all who attended. See you at Javamug.

SPONSOR: And a big thanks to Improving Enterprises for sponsoring us regularly

November 2014 Meeting: Spring Integration Framework

Spring Dallas User Group Wednesday November 19th 2014

TOPIC: Spring Integration Framework
6:30 to 7:00 Pizza
7:00 Main Meeting

Abstract: IOC & Dependency Injection have often been confused as the same thing. In addition, while there have been several efforts for a IoC Framework, for various reasons they have fallen short or otherwise not caught on. The latest effort under the Spring Umbrella picks up many of the missing pieces, and carries on where the Spring folks left off. Spring Integration Framework, now in it’s fourth generation (4.0.0 was released April 2014, current shipping is 4.0.4), besides providing a true IoC framework, also provides “Default Implementations” of many of the components described in the book “Enterprise Application Integration Patterns” by Gregor Hohpe & Bobby Woolf. The Documentation of Spring Integration Framework covers the supplied components, but does not mention the IoC application or capabilities. This presentation will start with reviewing IoC, then a quick overview of Spring Integration Framework, specifically addressing several questions and issues that colleagues have had on every SIF project that the presenter has worked on to date.

 
Biography: Steve Davidson has been working with Java Client/Server technologies since 1999, and Core JEE technologies since 2000. Since then, he has worked a variety of projects, run and/or supported the odd user group, given a few presentations here and there, as well as introduced a few people to Java or Java-based technologies. Steve started his first Spring Integration project in January 2011, and has been working with it on and off since.

October 2014 Meeting: Spring Boot: More Spring, Less Configuration

Spring Dallas User Group Wednesday October 15th 2014

TOPIC: Spring Boot: More Spring, Less Configuration
6:30 to 7:00 Pizza
7:00 Main Meeting

Abstract: In this session, we’ll see how to build real Spring applications using Spring Boot. We’ll also look under the covers to see what makes Spring Boot tick.

Spring offers a number of configuration options: XML configuration, Java configuration, and Groovy configuration to name a few. To some degree, component-scanning and autowiring help eliminate some explicit configuration. But in general most Spring applications require some essential “bootstrap” configuration to enable key functionality. What’s the right way to build Spring applications when there are so many choices?

What if I told you that configuration was optional?

Spring Boot is an exciting new project that makes it extremely easy to create stand-alone, production-ready Spring applications. Spring Boot takes an opinionated approach to configuring Spring, making it possible to create Spring applications with little or, in some cases, no Spring configuration at all!

 
Biography: Craig Walls is a senior engineer with Pivotal as the Spring Social project lead and is the author of Spring in Action.

August 2014 Meeting: Using Redis in your Spring Applications

Spring Dallas User Group Wednesday August 20th 2014

TOPIC: Using Redis in your Spring Applications
6:30 to 7:00 Pizza

Abstract: Redis is a popular open source key-value store. It is used by various companies like Twitter, Github, and Pinterest. Come learn how to start using Redis in your Spring Applications with the Spring Data Redis Project. The Spring Data Redis (or SDR) framework makes it easy to write Spring applications that use the Redis key value store by eliminating the redundant tasks and boiler plate code required for interacting with the store through Spring’s excellent infrastructure support.
