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.
