  • Built a great Spring Roo-based project? Like a free kangaroo and t-shirt? :-)

    If you've built a project using Spring Roo, we'd love to recognize your work! Back by popular demand, we've secured another shipment of the cute little kangaroos we shared with the community a few months ago (photo below). Plus this time we've added some Roo t-shirts....

    Project Showcase

    Are you able to publicly share a few details (and maybe a screen shot) about one of your Roo-based projects? Perhaps you'd like to publish a blog or message here on the forum about how you used Roo on a project. Alternately, you might like to participate in a more in-depth case study. Or perhaps you'd prefer to talk about your usage in the form of the new Spring Roo Podcast series. No matter what you prefer, all of these help us build up awareness of real-world Spring Roo usage and this is invaluable for developing the Roo community. As our way of saying thanks for taking the time to share your project details, please send me an email (balex at vmware dot com) with subject "[kanga]" and I'll arrange for you to receive a limited-edition kangaroo and Roo t-shirt from us here in Australia. These were very popular last time we gave them out, and we're looking forward to more "action shots" as they make their way across the world once more.

    We hope that you find this an interesting and enjoyable way to share your Roo usage with the community.

    Salivating for the Roo Prizes

    Hello Ben,

    I've been actively working with Roo since 1.1.0M1. I just can't stop working with Roo. It is addictive!. I've deployed four (4) Roo-enabled showcases so far -and have more in the pipeline. My goal is to implement/deploy at least one showcase using Roo with a relevant technology add-on: mvc, flex, security, gwt, seo, etc. In addition to exercising the technology, I am including typical "web-corporate-type" use-cases requirements. All my showcases are live and are using real data coming from a rdms.

    You can visit my Show Cases Tour Guide (sctg) at web site is the front end of all my work done with Roo and includes information about each web app.

    Please visit sctg and and let me know what you think.

    Did I get the prizes?

      Would these qualify?

      Here is a set of posts I wrote as I was developing my first Roo application. It is a typical database backed web application.

      Here is another one (slightly longer) that I built recently that replaces the persistence layer with a custom one (JSON over HTTP to a remote webservice). This just depends on Roo for the basic scaffolding, but then puts everything behind login, and adds the user to every query, and adds a Dojo rich text editor for some textarea forms.

      If you are giving out T-shirts, my size is XL :-). A toy kangaroo would be nice too, would fit in nicely with my penguin and mule...

        Great Roo Apps

        Hello Sujit,

        Pretty cool what you have accomplish with Roo...
        Your blogs are easy to follow and well documented.

        I wonder if there is a link available for visiting the referred apps.

        Thank you

          Thanks jD, and no, neither of these have a public URL - both of these are intranet tools.

                Hi JD

                I've mailed you, Sujit and Mario off-list. My apologies for the delay.

                Everyone, we're still giving our kangaroos and t-shirts. I've just been on leave for a while and was then occupied by our Roo 1.1.0 release. Feel free to email [email protected] if you'd like a free kangaroo and t-shirt. Just please remember to include "[kanga]" in the subject so I can find your emails quickly and get the goodies on their way to you.

                    Estimado Mario,

                    Few quick questions...

                    1) I wonder the compatibility of gvNIX with 1.1.0.RELEASE?.
                    2) Are there samples provided with gvNIX; the way Roo releases does?.
                    3) Is there a tutorial available?

                    Thx in advance

                            Roundtrip Roo JPA App

                            I'd like to share a Roo App into the vaccuum that is round-trip roo scripting.

                            This is a github project url with the roo-script code generator sitting inside of a sample app, for which it will reproduce a nice default roo config with a few commented options.

                            project url

                            sample output

                              Everyone, just a reminder we still have free kangaroos and t-shirts and other swag to give away. All you need to do is publish info on your Spring Roo project publicly, and then email the URL to [email protected] and put "[kanga]" in the subject line. I'll arrange for your schwag to be sent ASAP!

                              Enjoy the goodies.
