TOPIC: Practical Spring Persistence
6:30 to 7:00 Pizza
7:00 Main Meeting
Abstract: In recent years the previously quiet persistence landscape has been reenergized with a host of new, revolutionary storage technologies. The rapid introduction of new concepts, interfaces, and tools have left most of us bewildered. Since nearly every useful application requires some degree of persistence, we are forced to do our best to keep up, all of the time wondering if we are making the right technology choices. Fortunately, we are not alone. Spring 3 is here to help!
Continuing in the tradition of Practical Spring lectures by Ted Young, this will be a fast-paced, demo-driven presentation that will explore various persistence technologies and philosophies. Unlike “pet clinic” style demonstrations, we will apply these technologies in a Spring environment to develop practical solutions to real-world problems and demonstrate best practices along the entire depth of the application stack. We will cover both high-level concepts (comparing storage technologies, covering critical storage concepts, exploring popular persistence-layer design patterns) as well as specific technologies (ORMs, OXMs, JSON Mappers, JPA, JPQL, Querying, Spring Data) and much more. I guarantee that even experienced Spring developers will benefit from the breadth of technology and solutions presented.
