What a crazy week! JavaOne is underway, and the SpringSource / CloudFoundry booth has been the hub of activity on the showroom floor. To all those who we've talked
to, the relevant links include the open source code for CloudFoundry, the SpringSource blog, and of course the blog introducing the MicroCloud Foundry for Spring Developers and, generally, the Youtube SpringSource channel.
Lots of content, so let's get to it!

John Ferguson blogs about using Spring dependencies in your acceptance tests with Thucydides. From the article, "Spring provides excellent support for integration tests, via the SpringJUnit4ClassRunner test runner. Unfortunately, if you are using Thucydides, this is not an option, as a test cannot have two runners at the same time. Fortunately, however, there is a solution!"
