Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week, the SpringSource and Cloud Foundry teams are OSCON talking about open source enterprise and cloud computing with anybody and everybody. If you're in the region, be sure to check out the SpringSource and Cloud Foundry booth in the exhibition hall!
Are you having trouble setting up the @cloudfoundry gem support for service tunneling on Windows? To recap, a) install Ruby, then install DevKit, then install the Event Machine gem, like this gem install eventmachine --pre -v '1.0.0.beta.4.1', then install the tunnel, like this gem install caldecott. You should be able to start a new shell, register an account on Cloud Foundry, and start building Spring applications with the SpringSource Tool Suite in no time!
Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring. This week, I'm at JAX in San Francisco. We're
having a good time, and happily answering questions from community members. As usual, though, we've got a lot to cover, so let's get on with the show.
The new release adds support for a default error pages
The servlet version defined in web.xml no longer determines if Tomcat scans for annotations when the web application starts. This is now solely controlled by metadata-complete element.
On web application start, JARs are now always scanned for ServletContainerInitializers regardless of the setting of metadata-complete
This is not a Spring-specific post, but instead pertains to AspectJ. AspectJ, of course, is very well supported as part of Spring's AOP story. In this blog, Thibault Delor introduces how to introduce a useful toString method for all of your classes.
We're pleased to an announce the GA release of Spring Security 3.1.1
The release is available from the Spring Community Downloads area and jars are available from Maven central repository. See the project website for more information.
Spring Data Redis 1.0.1 has been released.
Among other things the new release supports
support for a new (4th) Redis driver SRP,
Redis native execution (RedisConnection#execute), and improved pipeline execution tracking potential errors and bulk results consistently across all drivers
The Java TV tutorial site and aggregator has both of Spring Integration contributor Oleg Zhurakousky's webinars on Spring Integration Tips 'n Tricks. It's nice when the aggregators pick up good content, but readers should also be sure to check out the source for all your SpringSource videos and tutorials, the SpringSource Dev YouTube channel.
Only faintly related to Spring: Joram Barrez, a contributor to the Activiti BPMN2 workflow engine, to which both Spring Batch lead Dr. David Syer and I contributed the Spring support, has put up a nice post comparing the speed of the workflow engine and some of the tests use the Spring support.
