Much discussion has been going on in the past few years on reactive streams – with large data processing becoming more of the norm. For those that work on the JVM, we now have a number of different options, and even a group who are trying to formalise this effort with consistent APIs. With such companies as Oracle, Pivotal, NetFlix, Twitter and even wannabes (like Typesafe) contributing to Reactive Streams (http://www.reactive-streams.org/) this is something that understanding for those on the JVM is worthwhile.

I’ve really enjoyed working in the Grails ecosystem. There are a variety of reasons of which I won’t write in this post. I am going to focus on one and that is the plugin system. Plugins provide a great way to re-use capability easily in a way I don’t recall seeing elsewhere in the Java ecosystem. I recently authored my first Grails plugin and I want to share my experiences here. Continue reading
About the Presentation: Since Sun Microsystem announced it at JavaOne in 2007, JavaFX has evolved from a RIA platform requiring a special language into a full fledged modern GUI toolkit for desktop computers (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux), smart phones and tablets (iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Surface Pro), and embedded devices (Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and others). JavaFX 8, which is a part of Oracle JDK 8, offers a fantastic set of UI controls, layouts, animations, and charts; supports media playback and webview; allows GUIs to be created graphically (SceneBuilder) or declaratively (FXML), and styled by CSS; and supports 3D scenes when appropriate video hardware is available.

Microservice frameworks like Ratpack & Spring Boot are picking up the pace. Grails 3 will be based on Spring Boot and will come with a whole new flavor to Grails development. Lets get familiar these services and keep ourselves abreast of this feature.
Details of the event will be updated shortly.
Check out Spring Data REST, a library than can rapidly bridge your data access layer to a RESTful interface using hypermedia. See how you can build the backend for your startup rapidly and using top notch practices. We will then look at Spring-A-Gram, a sample application built with Spring Data REST and other tools, that let’s you snap pictures from your laptop or smartphone, and uploads them to the server with little effort.
