have announced an updated version of their plugin which facilitates live-reloading of code in Java applications. The new release features improved support for Spring, supporting live reloading of
@Configuration-based Spring applications.
James Rossiter has a nice post on how to handle form binding using Spring MVC's <form> tags and
Spring MVC models. There are two posts. The first introduces how to bind a parent and child object. The second introduces the initBinder mechanism.
Camilo Lopes has written up a book review (in Portuguese) of the Portguese-language book Vire o jogo com Spring Framework. This is worth a read if you're looking for a book introducing Spring (in Portuguese).
Spring Security is a framework that focuses on providing both authentication and authorization to Java applications. Like all Spring projects, the real power of Spring Security is found in how easily it can be extended to meet custom requirements. In this presentation Rob will incrementally apply Spring Security to an existing application to demonstrate how it can meet your authentication and authorization needs. It will also answer many of the common "how to" questions that are found on the forums. This will ensure that you can not only secure your application quickly, but ensure you understand Spring Security well enough to extend it to meet your custom requirements.

What's new with tooling for Spring, Grails and the Cloud
In this talk we will give an overview of the recently open-sourced and newly organized tooling landscape for Spring, Groovy/Grails and Cloud Foundry (we’ll touch on Gradle too). We will introduce the new open-sourced tooling projects and how they fit together to form our new distributions: the Spring Tool Suite and the Groovy/Grails Tool Suite. In addition to that we will demo the latest feature additions to the tools that enable you to be even more productive.
The first part of this talk will focus on Spring whilst the second part focuses on Groovy/Grails. Attend one (or both!) parts of the session.

Join David Turanski (SpringSource) and Damien Dallimore (Splunk) as they discuss and demonstrate Splunk and Spring Integration. Spring Integration provides a number of adapters out of the box to support various transports, such as JMS, File, HTTP, Web Services, and Mail. They will introduce the Splunk channel adapter, a new entry to the out of the box adapters available for Spring Integration, which allows data to flow through Spring Integration to interact with data being ingested or queried by Splunk.
For those who may be unfamiliar, Splunk collects, indexes and harnesses machine-generated big data so you can monitor, search, analyze, visualize and act on large streams of real-time and historical machine data.
Demo Source is located at:

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring!
This week I'm in chilly (brrr!) London, England and Paris, France, for Devoxx UK and Devoxx FR and - tonight - I gave a talk at Skills Matter for the London Spring User Group. What a pleasant experience. If you're in France and want to talk Spring, don't hesitate to ping me.
Spring Integration 2.2 introduces many exciting new features including among other things new adapters supporting MongoDB, Redis and JPA. Furthermore, the transaction synchronization support was expanded, allowing for the synchronization of inherently non-transactional resources with existing transactions. Another noteworthy addition is the ability to add behavior to individual endpoints using advice chains. For example, Spring Integration 2.2 now provides out-of-the-box support for various retry strategies. Watch this replay session to learn about these and many other new features and improvements. We will also take a look at some of the things planned for Spring Integration 3.0.

Spring Framework is required knowledge for Java developers. Spring 3.2, the latest major version, builds on the core Spring 3 features like SpEL, the Spring Expression Language, new annotations for the IoC container, and much-needed support for REST. Whether you're just discovering Spring or you want to absorb the new features, there's no better way to master Spring than with this book.
Spring in Action, Fourth Edition is a hands-on guide to the Spring Framework. It covers the latest features, tools, and practices including Spring MVC, REST, Security, Web Flow, and more. You'll move between short snippets and an ongoing example as you learn to build simple and efficient J2EE applications. Author Craig Walls has a special knack for crisp and entertaining examples that zoom in on the features and techniques you really need.

No application is an island and this is more obvious today than ever as applications extend their reach into people's pockets, desktops, tablets, TVs, Blu-ray players and cars. What's a modern developer to do to support these many platforms? In this talk, join Josh Long to learn how Spring can extend your reach through (sometimes Spring Security OAuth-secured) RESTful services exposed through Spring MVC, HTML5 and client-specific rendering thanks to Spring Mobile, and powerful, native support for Android with Spring Android.

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring!
This week, there's a lot of Spring Tool Suite news, so be sure to check out
the new release and try it out.
One last reminder: be sure to join me Thursday for a webinar introducing Spring's REST and mobile support at 3:00PM GMT (for Europeans) and 10:00AM PST (for North America).
If you've wanted to learn how to build mobile applications for your Spring-based backend services, then this talk is for you. We'll look
at Spring's rich support for REST,
Android and mobile platforms, in general.
Jonathan Brisbin's announced that Spring Data REST 1.1.0.M1 has been released.
The new release is basically a from-the-ground up rewrite. In the new release, there is support for all
repositories including MongoDB and GemFire-based repositories.
Before the RestTemplate and REST, and before document-oriented SOAP-based web services and Spring Web Services, there was
Spring's JaxWsPortProxyFactoryBean, which can give you a strongly typed client to talk to SOAP web service with a JAX-WS port, or client.
This post introduces how to use Spring's JAX-WS support to create a client.
The Spring Addon blog has a perhaps overly-brief look at how to setup a Spring MVC-based REST endpoint. He makes a good point though: if you've got a Spring MVC application, then exposing a RESTful service is dead simple from there.
