Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in London, UK; Paris, France (for the epic Devoxx France event where I’ll be speaking with my buddy Matt Raible) and Stuttgart, Germany, where I’ll be speaking at conferences and to customers! If you’re around, don’t hesitate to say, “Hi”!
- The new release of Spring Tool Suite is jam-packed with new features supporting Spring Boot and Cloud Foundry. Check the New and Noteworthy and get it while it’s hot! (I’ve just gotten a new laptop, so I’m doing that right now, too!).
- Last week, in the latest installment of Spring Tips I looked at some the various utility classes in the Spring Framework.
- I just presented at the premier Voxxed Days CERN event and the organizers interviewed the amazing Spring Framework lead Juergen Hoeller, and me (his biggest fan).
- Don’t miss the upcoming webinar on April 13th, Spring Boot Under the Hood.
- My friend from Alibaba, Jacky Chan, put together a fantastic sample application demonstrating Spring Boot and Angular4.
- Version 1.6.0 of the project Find Security Bugs, the FindBugs plugin for security audits of Java web applications, was recently released. This new version adds some Spring specific checks, like disabling of CSRF protection, unrestricted use of RequestMapping causing CSRF vulnerabilities and dangerous server-side redirect using user input. Thanks to Pablo Tamarit for bringing this to my attention — very cool!
- Our friend Nicolas Frankel has an interesting post on where to put common code in a Spring MVC application.
- Yes, April Fools is past, but I just wanted to share this epic creation from 2016 Spring Test lead Sam Brannen, Spring Polyglot, demonstrating composed applications for different (human) languages.
- This isn’t specifically to do with Spring, though it is something you could implement with Spring Cloud Zuul or the new Spring Cloud Gateway technology, but this post by Stripe on the nuances of load-balancers and shedders was quite informative.
- I quite liked this post introducing some Kotlin-language best practices.
- Spring Cloud ninja Dave Turanski put together a great post introducing Spring Cloud Stream for event-driven architectures.
