My Weekly Review is one month old – so let's look at what the end of January has for us.
=> Spring Webminar Replays:
- Webinar Replay: Spring Security 3.2
- Webminar Replay: Spring Testing
- Webinar Replay: Introduction to Spring Framework 4.0
- Webminar Replay: Intro to WebSocket Applications with Spring Framework 4.0
If you haven't seen the Getting Started guides – you're missing out – very useful to brush up on and keep up with best practices.
Nice introduction about how is it is to test a standard Spring application with Mockito and Hamcrest.
A quick look at how to bootstrap a web app with Spring with Java only.
Practical view on how Java 8 lambdas will make things simpler.
A new Java 8 series I'm following – the first (from last week) shows a very nice usage of lambdas for processing XML with a clean, JQuery-like syntax – something I'm definitely going to use next time I need to process XML.
The second article looks at how Java 8 has improved the way we work with files. Looking forward for the next one.
I haven't yet upgraded to the Java 7 update 51 – and I'll probably hold off for a while longer – so this is just something to be aware of.
A good and in-depth article about running JMeter tests with Maven and Jenkins – I keep this one bookmarked for reference.
This is useful for anyone working with Legacy systems (so likely for everyone). It's a nuanced approach – no black and white here, and definitely worth reading.
That was a strong end for January – lot of Spring goodness, some interesting Java 8 stuff and a few other resources worth reading up on.
See you next time.
