Spring Data JPA - Repositories done right

A session at W-JAX 2012

Wednesday 7th November, 2012

10:15am to 11:15am (CET)

Domain driven design has become a ubiquitous approach to tackle complex problem domains and build a rich object model. Furthermore JPA has become the standard and widely accepted way of object persistence in the Java world. The talk introduces the the Spring Data project in general with a focus on the JPA module that allows developers to easily implement JPA based repositories in a sophisticated way. We start with a brief analysis of a plain JPA based repository implementation and outline pain points esp. regarding the domain driven approach (lack of abstraction, tediousness of executing queries, pagination and so on). The main part of the talk then takes a look at how Spring Data JPA provides solutions to those problems. The presentation is 80% hands on - less slides, more code :).
