  • You are a Force.com developer. Why should you care about vmforce? Let’s look at 2 examples where you may be able to leverage Spring &vmforce to solve a business problem
  • Vmforce works by providing a multi-tenant jvm cloud that Spring developers can deploy their apps to. Once deployed the Java apps will be able to access services on the force.com platform including search, reporting and the force.com database for persistance. In the reverse, and this is what is more important for force.com developers to understand is that they can leverage existing apps, routines, logic and developer skillsets.Before we jump into the Intro to Spring, Lets look at a couple of real examples on how Force.com developers can leverage existing apps.
  • So, clearly this is promising a lot. In practice this boils down to a LOT of frameworks choices to solve just about any kind of problem -

  • What is VMforce?
    Develop your Java app locally
    Eclipse
    Spring FrameworkJPA
    Your Java apps can leverage Force.com services
    Relational cloud database
    Security & user management
    Search & Chatter APIs
    Reporting
    We run it for you in our cloud
    Managed Java Stack
    Automatic Scalability
    Backups and DR
    Pre-integrated to Force.com database
  • Why VMforce?
    Develop your Java app locally
    Leverage existing Java skills and assets
    Your Java apps can leverage Force.com services
    Centralize data management
    Centralize user managementFaster time-to-value
    We run it for you in our cloud
    No complex HW and SW stacks to build, tune, scale, patch and upgrade
    Trusted performance, reliability, backup, and disaster recovery
  • But we’re Force.com developers,
    How can we take advantage of VMforce and Spring?
  • How VMforceWorks
    Your app gets search, reporting, mobile and all other Force.com services out of the box
    You deploy a Java Web App
    Force.com
    VMforce Multi-tenant JVM Cloud
    JVM
    Servlet Engine
    .war
    API
    It gets its own servlet engine and JVM
    Force.com is the database for your Java app
    It connects to Force.com using existing APIs with JPA layer
  • Integration Apps
    Force.com
    Java App
    On-prem
    VMforceApp app =
    new VMforceApp();
    Policies__c[] result =
    app.getPolicies(customerId);
    public SObject[] getPolicies(String id) {
    return convert2SObject(
    soap.getPolicies(id));
    }
    Delegate complex integration logic to Java tier
    Reuse existing Java assets (e.g., mapping, parsing logic)
    Delegate work to Java skilled people
  • Data Processing Apps
    Force.com
    VMforce App
    public SObject[] process(SObject[] input) {
    return myMagician.performMagic(input);
    }
    VMforceApp app = new VMforceApp();
    SObject[] result = app.process(sobjects);
    sync
    VMforceApp app = new VMforceApp();
    app.process(sobjects,callback);
    public void callback(SObject[] result) {
    checkResults(result);
    }
    async
    Delegate heavy-weight processing to Java tier
    Reuse existing Java assets, libraries etc
    Delegate dev work to Java skilled people
  • Josh Long
    Spring Developer Advocate SpringSource, a division of VMware
  • About Josh
    SpringSource developer advocate (and committer!)
    Author of Apress’ “Spring Recipes, 2nd Edition.”
    Editor for InfoQ.com
    Open source fiend and Hackaholic – github.com/joshlongor http://joshlong.com
  • About SpringSource
    SpringSource is the organization that develops the Spring framework, the leading enterprise Java framework
    SpringSource was acquired by VMware in 2009
    VMware and SpringSource are working with salesforce.com to build a best-of-breed, next generation cloud for Spring and Salesforce developers alike
  • Spring’s Aim: Bring Simplicity to Java Development
  • The Spring Framework (lay of the land)
  • At Its Core…Spring Framework is:
    The de-facto standard in lightweight Java enterprise applications
    Unified Component Model – Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs!)(from day one!)
    Inversion of Control / Dependency Injection
    Aspect Oriented Programming
    Best Practices-Oriented
    N-Tier architectures
  • Demo 1
    Here, we walk through getting STS
    Creating a new preconfigured Maven project from STS
    Writing a main() method and launching a Spring context
    This live coding will go up until we have injected a Map<String,Object> into a service impl
  • Demo 1: Recap for Force.com Developers
  • Spring’s Data Access APIs
    Flexible
    No vendor lock-in:
    Built on Standards like JPA (Java Persistence Architecture)
    Popular alternative implementations: Hibernate
    Simplifying APIs for straight JDBC
    Very clean APIs
    You write the code that’s relevant for your business, leave boilerplate to Spring
  • Demo 2
    Walk through setting up JPA
    (will demonstrate using the STS support to add Maven dependencies)
  • Demo 2: Recap for Force.com Developers
    JPA – Java Persistence Architecture
    Preferred Java standard for data access
    VMforce will provide a JPA adapter to connect to Force.com DB
  • Spring’s Web Tier Support
    Web Containers Offer Servlet API
    Servlets are low level request/response handlers in a Java web server (like Tomcat, or SpringSource’stcServer)
    Spring @MVC framework sits on top of Servlet API
  • Spring & MVC
  • Demo 3
    Walk through using our existing CustomerServicefrom a simple web application and then
  • Demo 3: Recap for Force.com Developers
  • Summary
    VMforce enables Java developers to reach the Cloud
    And leverage Force.com Services (search, reporting, mobile etc)
    Force.com developers can leverage VMforce
    leverage Spring (existing apps, logic etc)
    Will only require a JPA config change
    Spring Simplicity
    And leverage existing developer skillsets
