TOPIC: Practical Spring MVC 3.0 by Ted Young
6:30 to 7:00 Pizza
7:00 Main Meeting
Abstract: Spring 3.0 brought a completely new, annotation-driven approach to creating controllers. This new methodology has revolutionized the controller layer, changing it from something developers work hard to avoid to an incredibly simple, intuitive task that restores value to the controller layer in a web application.
In this fast-paced, demo-driven presentation, I will take you on an exciting tour of Spring MVC. Unlike “pet clinic” style demonstrations, we will make use of practical solutions to real-world problems and demonstrate best practices along the entire depth of the application stack. If you have never used Spring MVC then allow me to show you what you have been missing. Not only will I cover the basics; but I will show you the advantages over competing controller-less frameworks. I guarantee that even experienced Spring MVC developers as well as non-web application developers will benefit from the breadth of technology and solutions presented.
We will cover writing controllers without XML, form processing and file uploads, hosting and consuming web services using REST, XML, and JSON, using the Spring tag libraries with JSPs and Freemarker, supporting multiple output formats including Excel, Word, and PDF, internationalizing web applications, transactions, automated validation, multipage conversations, and much more!
