Spring Boot: More Spring, Less Configuration

Spring Boot: More Spring, Less Configuration

November 5, 2013

In collaboration with the Spring User Group we are excited to have Craig Walls in town!

IMPORTANT: This Meeting is in Buckhead, 3500 Lenox Rd NE!

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!

About the Speakers

Craig Walls is a senior engineer with Pivotal as the Spring Social project lead and is the author of Spring in Action. He’s a zealous promoter of the Spring Framework, speaking frequently at local user groups and conferences and writing about Spring. When he’s not slinging code, Craig spends as much time as he can with his wife, two daughters, 2 birds and 3 dogs.

Meeting Details:

The meeting will begin at 6:30pm allowing members time to network, arrive and enjoy pizza. At 7pm, ASUG will give an introductory welcome, and will be shortly followed by the presentation. After the presentation we will be giving away some awesome schwag that was kindly donated to us by SpringSource. As always, everyone has the option to head downstairs to Aja for networking and drinks after the meeting.

Important Note:

Parking at the One Alliance Center is $10 max. If you wish to go to Aja after the meeting they will validate part of your parking. If parking is a problem, some members park at Phipps Plaza for free and walk over. ASUG does NOT validate parking.

Data Microservices with Spring Cloud Stream, Task, and Data Flow

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Microservice based architectures are not just for distributed web applications! They are also a powerful approach for creating distributed stream and batch processing.

Spring Cloud Data Flow enables you to create and orchestrate standalone executable applications that communicate over messaging middleware such as Kafka and RabbitMQ that when run together, form a distributed stream processing application. It also allows users to create and orchestrate short lived microservices like batch jobs or boot applications that perform a task and then terminate when complete.

This allows you to scale, version and operationalize stream processing and task applications following microservice based patterns and practices on a variety of runtime platforms such as Cloud Foundry, Apache YARN and others.
