We're please to announce the relase of Spring Security 2.0.8, 3.0.8, and 3.1.3 which fixes CVE-2012-5055 and brings Spring Security's open bugs to 0. The releases are available from the Spring Community Downloads area and jars are available from Maven central repository. See the project website for more information.
A special thanks to Nicholas Goodwin (@NGoody) for disclosing the issue and keeping it private until a fix could be pushed out.
Jeremy Grelle will discuss how web and mobile clients are getting continually more sophisticated as client processing power continues to increase and much richer APIs are provided by the given platform. One of the most mind-bending shifts that is occurring is in transitioning from a world of purely request-response, to the world of client-server full duplex communication that is enabled by the latest smart client platforms.
This session will explore the new patterns of interaction that are enabled by the latest communication methods such as WebSockets and Push-to-Device services, as well as the practical concerns of actually implementing such patterns in an application using tools such as SockJS, RabbitMQ and Spring.

Some of our users reported general performance issues with the new Eclipse Juno 4.2 platform that STS 3.0.0 shipped with. Most of these issues seem to be related to the underlying UI platform and its usage from various plugins and extensions. Since our goal is to provide the best possible user experience, we decided to provide two separate distributions for STS 3.1.0: one that is built on top of Eclipse Juno 3.8 and one on top of Eclipse Juno 4.2. People who have trouble using the 4.2-based version should try the 3.8-based distribution instead.
Updates from STS/GGTS 3.0.0 are available through the automatic "Check for Updates" again. Users of STS 2.9.x (or older) should start with a fresh installation of STS/GGTS 3.1.0.
The next version 3.2.0 is scheduled to arrive in March 2013, shortly after the Eclipse Juno SR2 release. Also watch out for milestone builds of 3.2.0 if you wanna stay up-to-date with the latest developments.
I am pleased to announce the first GA release for Spring Shell project! Spring Shell is an interactive shell that can be easily extended with commands using a Spring based programming model, extracted from the Spring Roo project.
Today, there are several trends that are forcing application architectures to evolve. Users expect a rich, interactive and dynamic user experience on a wide variety of clients including mobile devices. Applications must be highly scalable, highly available and run on cloud environments. Organizations often want to frequently roll out updates, even multiple times a day. Consequently, it’s no longer adequate to develop simple, monolithic web applications that serve up HTML to desktop browsers.
In this talk we describe the limitations of a monolithic architecture. You will learn how to use the scale cube to decompose your application into a set of narrowly focused, independently deployable back-end services and an HTML 5 client. We will also discuss the role of technologies such as NodeJS and AMQP brokers. You will learn how a modern PaaS such as Cloud Foundry simplifies the development and deployment of this style of application.
Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring!
There's so much good stuff to look at this week. Can you believe we're already staring down October?
It's time to think about who or what you are going to be for halloween!
With October comes SpringOne2GX, the premier event for Spring developers.
Check out the final schedule of
speakers and sessions
for this year's event! SpringOne 2GX is your opportunity to learn from development leads and published authors on the Spring, Groovy/Grails, Tomcat and Cloud technologies.
There is much that's new. On the server side we've added support for servlet filters, basic support for Spring Security, the ability to define default request properties and expectations to re-use across every performed request, and much more. On the client side we've greatly expanded the options for request matching and response creation.
By Rob Winch, Senior Software Engineer, Spring Security Lead
Due to its complexity, implementing security can be a daunting task for developers of all skill levels. In this presentation we will discuss, in depth, the foundation of Spring Security's architecture through the use of working sample code. We will start off with an existing application and learn how we can add Spring Security to it. We will then explore how Spring Security works underneath the hood.
In this session we'll explore a handful of the most popular client-side UI frameworks, including Backbone, Knockout, Sammy, and Spine (and others) weighing their strengths and weaknesses and helping decide which framework is most suitable for a given set of UI goals.
