  • New tutorial - if people ask for it.

    Hi Folks,

    I did a small exercise with Spring Roo and I am happy enough with it to share it with the world. I am thinking of writing it up as a tutorial, but I would like some encouragement. Please comment if you would like me to write this one up?

    I don't pretend my example is perfect - but it does work. I'm happy to hear of better ways of doing things :-)

    My application is basically a cache for "" - ie it finds out if a url has been shortened (eh by and returns the original url

    So it has a basic one entity with just a few columns. It has a web front end for viewing that data (and entering test data if you want). It also has a json way of extracting that data through REST and json.

    In order to debug the REST interface I used a cool ExtJS javascript from
    This should also be in the tutorial as it demonstrates a few extra things like it is easy to add ExtJS (and BTI360 deserve a mention :-)

    Although not Spring Roo - it uses Springs RestTemplate to make the call to RealUrl, and JaxB to parse the results.

          Absolutely! Go for it. Real world examples are illustrative, and helpful. We try to roundup good content and post everyweek in "This Week in Spring" (see, for example, -- though there are a lot of others. It's published weekly..)
