Applications are increasingly facing demands for horizontal scalability and cross-platform interoperability. NoSQL data stores are gaining momentum as a way to address the scalability challenges, but for Java developers, this means we need to explore new territory beyond relational database libraries like JDBC and JPA. This video explains how the Spring application platform is evolving to accommodate these trends.
It explores the Spring Data APIs for working with NoSQL data stores and discuss open protocol options for messaging via Spring Integration Gateways and Channel Adapters. Cloud Foundry is presented from an application developer’s perspective. The session includes a demo of a sample application designed to demonstrate the characteristics of modularity that allow an application to take advantage of a cloud environment, making use of the RabbitMQ and MongoDB services available on Cloud Foundry.
