TOPIC: Spring Boot: More Spring, Less Configuration
6:30 to 7:00 Pizza
7:00 Main Meeting
Abstract: 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?
What if I told you that it is entirely possible to write a Spring application that is short enough to broadcast *twice* in a single tweet?
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 has been professionally developing software for over 17 years (and longer than that for the pure geekiness of it). He is a senior engineer with SpringSource as the Spring Social project lead and is the author of Spring in Action and XDoclet in Action (both published by Manning) and Modular Java (published by Pragmatic Bookshelf). He’s a zealous promoter of the Spring Framework, speaking frequently at local user groups and conferences and writing about Spring and OSGi on his blog. When he’s not slinging code, Craig spends as much time as he can with his wife, two daughters, 5 birds and 3 dogs.
