Building REST Services with Spring

No application is an island. Today’s applications are composed of micro-services. In this talk, Josh Long introduces how to build OAuth-secured, HATEOAS-compliant, REST-powered micro-services with Spring quickly and easily and then demonstrates how to use that service from a JVM/Android client.

This talk introduces Spring MVC’s REST support, introduces Spring HATEOAS, introduces Spring Security OAuth and then demonstrates how to build a Spring Social powered client that can be used in coordination with Spring for Android.

It is based on my webinar on the same subject which has garnered around 16,000 views

Have You Seen Spring Lately?

It’s been an amazing year for Spring! 2013 saw the Spring family join Pivotal where - along with Cloud Foundry, Grails, Redis, Tomcat, and RabbitMQ - Spring supports today’s application workloads and profiles. Today’s Spring is polyglot, provides a best-in-class REST stack, supports the open web, big-data, and mobile applications. Today’s Spring is easy to get started with, easy to learn, and convention-centric. Today’s Spring is…Pivotal. Join Spring developer advocate Josh Long as he re-introduces you to today’s Spring, a Spring you may not have seen yet.

This talk is a broad, running tour of the Spring.iO platform. I’ll demonstrate our HATEOAS-compliant and OAuth-secured REST service support, NoSQL and big-data support, websockets support, OAuth and open-web security support and our mobile support.
