The Spring Data REST project is a library for exposing Spring Data Repositories via the web. Version 1.0 supports JPA Repositories and upcoming versions will support other Spring Data Repository implementations like MongoDB and GemFire. This talk will walk you through the process of exposing JPA entities via the Spring Data Repository abstraction and then exporting them to HTTP using Spring Data REST.
We'll do a bit of live coding to create an HTML 5 application to discover and consume these RESTful endpoints. HTTP also makes a simple and interoperable wire protocol for machine-to-machine communication, so we'll cover a few ways to consume your REST services in other systems by using tools like curl, Ruby, or Node.js.
Jon works with the Spring Data, Grails, RabbitMQ, and other teams to provide next-generation data and messaging capabilities for modern Ajax and mobile applications. He's been working with Spring Data to provide mapping capabilities for NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Riak and he's working with RabbitMQ and NoSQL to provide modern evented and message-driven data utilities. He authored the Grails support for Riak as well as contributes Erlang-based utilities for the Riak and RabbitMQ communities.
Prior to SpringSource, Jon developed private cloud architectures at the world's largest Pizza Hut franchisee, developed Lotus Domino, J2EE, PHP and even Perl CGI applications in BBEdit on an aged Mac, and got his start in web-based development 15 years ago, as an intelligence analyst for the US Air Force, when NCSA Mosaic 1.0 was cool.More About Jon »
