Episode 66. Ok, how about consuming Rest services

So we talked about how to create a rest service (using things like Apache CXF and Spring MVC), but sometimes, we actually need to consume these rest services. Luckily within the Java ecosystem there is a lot of way to skin that cat, and in today's episode we at least cover 4 ways of doing so (including my favorite of the day, Feign). Come take a listen as we dive into Appache HttpComponents, Apache CXF with JaxRS, Spring RestTemplate and Netflix Feign on this fully-loaded episode.

Episode 65. Oh my gosh, we missed CACHING! (what a cache miss!)

What a strange omission, of all the concepts, one that all of us should always have is Caching. We have used it (and most likely we have been burned by it). Come and take a listen on how to correctly (or at least not as incorrectly) think about caching, finding out your "game plan", and using JSR-107, or Hazelcast, or Apache Ignite or Spring. LRU? Time-based? How much memory? Long distribution tails? cacheable keys? All concepts that you should ask before creating/using a cache!

Episode 64. Oh it's time to re-boot Spring in Spring!

You heard about it, and you are probably using it already. It is the Spring framework that took over the Web (Spring Boot!). But what makes it so special? and what lurks under the covers? How did it became a thing and what is it really trying to accomplish? Come take a listen with our own Pivotal insider, Michael Minella! (@michaelminella)
