Prior to becoming a full-time Spring Framework developer, Rossen spent several years teaching and consulting clients building enterprise Java applications with Spring on a broad range of topics.
Come to this session to see how to build Java-based web apps and REST web services with Spring MVC 3.1.
Spring 3.1 has been in the making for a year and many of the changes relate to Spring MVC. In this session you'll learn why the new MVC code-based configuration may be the perfect blend between flexibility and simplicity and what makes the fully updated @MVC infrastructure a better foundation for both framework developers and framework users. We'll also cover programming model changes and new features such as flash attributes, the UriComponentsBuilder, the consumes & produces conditions, multipart request updates, and much more.
Come to this session to see Spring 3.1's new configuration enhancements in action.
Spring 3.1 offers a wealth of useful new features designed to ease application configuration. In this session you'll learn about the new Environment and PropertySource abstractions, bean definition profiles, Hibernate 4 support, and others. You'll learn why you should consider the new @Enable* annotations (a Java config alternative to XML namespaces) for your application and how to configure Web and even JPA applications without XML. We'll use a range of examples throughout to demonstrate the new capabilities.
This session will give attendees an overview of the new testing features in Spring 3.1 as well the new Spring MVC test support. Sam Brannen will demonstrate how to use the Spring TestContext Framework to write integration tests for Java-based Spring configuration using @Configuration classes. He'll then compare and contrast this approach with XML-based configuration and follow up with a discussion of the new testing support for bean definition profiles. Next, Rossen Stoyanchev will show attendees how testing server-side code with annotated controllers and client-side code with the RestTemplate just got a whole lot easier with the new Spring MVC test support. Come to this session to see these new Spring testing features in action and learn how you can get involved in the Spring MVC Test Support project.
