SeaJUG is an all volunteer effort - which means items such as the website and mailing list are updated as schedules afford. We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. We need suggestions/volunteers for topics! If you'd like to donate your time/skills to the cause, contact Nimret Sandhu.
NOTE: This meeting is at Expedia (3rd floor) and not our usual REI location only for May!
Spring Data JPA provides a powerful, out-of-the-box alternative to creating your own DAO framework. You declare custom repository operations on an interface, and the framework generates dynamic implementations (not code generation) automatically, based on conventions around method names.
Spring Data REST takes it a step further, and exports your Spring DATA JPA repositories as a full-blown, HATEOAS-compliant REST API.
Spring HATEOAS, in conjunction with the Spring RestTemplate, provides support for implementing clients for Spring Data REST services.
I'm a Principal Applications Engineer with Expedia, where I work on devops-related initiatives (continuous delivery and operations automation). I've been doing Java development for 16 years and Spring development for eight. I'm the primary author for Spring in Practice (Manning).
Willie will be giving away 3 copies of his book Spring in Practice at the meeting! Expedia is also giving away a $500 gift certificate.
The meeting is on the 3rd floor of the building and Expedia will validate parking. Free Pizza and pop are provided by TekSystems.
