With SpringSource being part of VMware family, getting a Spring training is certainly a lot easier than before. For one thing, my boss doesn’t need to pay for it.:-)
I just finished my 4-day training starting from this Tuesday. It’s been pretty exhausting given that I had to get up before 7AM to match the central time. But what’s learnt worth the effort.
Lost VMs or Containers? Too Many Consoles? Too Slow GUI? Time to learn how to "Google" and manage your VMware and clouds in a fast and secure HTML5 App.
The coverage of the training includes:
- Day 1 – Integration Foundations including concurrency, remoting, etc.
- Day 2 – Effective Web Services
- Day 3 – Message-Based Systems and Advanced Transaction Management
- Day 4 – Applying Spring Batch and Spring Integration
More details can be found here.
What interested me the most are the Spring JMS and Spring Batch. For those don’t know Spring Batch yet, it’s a batch processing framework similar to the concept of running Shell commands in a batch. As I can see, these two are two important enabling technologies for cloud computing, especially in federated cloud environments where you want to seamlessly shifting workload and balancing them across the boundaries.
I will blog them more when I start to use them in future projects. Stay tuned.
