November 16, 2010 @ 7:00pm – Message-Driven Architecture with the Spring Platform


This presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of Spring’s support for eventing, messaging, scheduling, and batch processing. You will learn how these features provide a platform for message-driven architecture. Examples will include integration with JMS, AMQP, Web Services, email, instant messaging and more. You will also learn about Spring’s support for Hohpe and Woolf’s Enterprise Integration Patterns. This will include demos of several basic patterns such as Messaging Gateway, Message Transformer, and Message Router, as well as composite patterns such as Control Bus, Claim Check, and Scatter/Gather using Splitters and Aggregators. The examples will also cover different options for adding custom integration logic within the configuration-driven context. Those options include not only POJOs, but also Spring 3.0’s Expression Language and Groovy scripts.


Mark Fisher is an engineer within the SpringSource division of VMware and lead of the the Spring Integration team. He is also a committer on the core Spring Framework as well as the Spring AMQP and Spring BlazeDS Integration projects. In addition to his role as an engineer, Mark spends a significant amount of time working with customers as a consultant and trainer. The focus of such engagements is primarily in the realm of enterprise integration, messaging, and event-driven applications.

Mark is a frequent speaker at conferences and user groups in North America and Europe, and along with other Spring Integration committers, he is an author of the forthcoming book, “Spring Integration in Action”, to be published by Manning.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

April 18, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
