Gary has been in software engineering, concentrating on Enterprise Integration, for over 30 years on various platforms, and in the Java space since the late '90s.
He has been developing with the Spring Framework since 2004 and joined SpringSource/VMware in 2009 in a consulting role. From 2009 until the end of 2011 he taught Core Spring and Enterprise Integration with Spring to several hundred developers, as well as providing Enterprise Integration consulting services with Spring Integration, Spring Batch and Core Spring.
He has been a committer on the Spring Integration project for over 3 years and became a full time member of the engineering team in January 2012.
In this session you will learn what Spring Integration and Spring Batch are all about, how they differ, their commonalities, and how you can use Spring Batch and Spring Integration together.
We will provide a short overview of the Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) as described in the highly influential book of the same name. Based on these patterns, we will then see how Spring Integration enables the development of Message-driven applications. This allows you to not only modularize new or existing applications but also makes it easy to integrate with external systems.
This session will also introduce Spring Batch. Spring Batch addresses the needs of any batch process, be it complex calculations in large financial institutions or simple data migration tasks as they exist in many software development projects. We will cover what Spring Batch is, how Spring approaches the concepts of batch and how Spring handles scaling batch processes to be able to handle any volume of data.
You will also see how Spring Integration and Spring Batch maximize the reuse of the integration support provided by the core Spring Framework. In addition to providing a robust, proven foundation, this also flattens the learning curve considerably to all developers already familiar with Spring.
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.
Attend this 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.
In this presentation we will discuss the options for managing and monitoring applications that use Spring Integration. It will provide a comprehensive overview of the extensive support for JMX provided by Spring Integration, both in terms of providing access to Spring Integration internals, as well as creating a JMX client to interact with local and remote MBeanServers.
In addition, we will show how to use the Spring Integration plugin for Spring Insight to drill down into Spring Integration flow processing to examine application performance.
