Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I’m in Pleasanton, CA, visiting one of Pivotal’s large customers, and then tomorrow, it’s off to New York City for my talk at the Kafka Summit with the excellent Tim Berglund and James Watters. Join us! Then, next week, it’s off to South Africa (for the SpringOne Tour shows in Capetown and Johannesburg). And then, finally, it’s off to Mauritius for the DevConf — if you’re in any of those places, don’t hesitate to say hi!.
Also, totally worth including that on Monday, the Spring Framework celebrated the 15th anniversary of its release on March 25, 2004! Happy 15th birthday, Spring!

- Interesting insight from Roy T. Fielding, the creator of REST and one of the major contributors to HTTP itself, on what “REST” is: “I disagree that the popular understanding of the term is different. What is different is the desire of certain companies, authors, and speakers to say REST when they know it is just HTTP; not because they don’t know the meaning. Put another way: don’t say ”REST" when you’re not using things like hypermedia (HATEOAS). I need to do better here, too."
- Spring, Functions, Serverless and You — a nice post on The New Stack!
- This is a nice post on OAuth security with Spring from the Java Code Geeks. Enjoy!
