Welcome to another edition of #ThisWeekInScala. My :

@aphexmunky: The problem with learning #scala, #akka and #playframework is once you know them, you hate working without them.

How true. I'm currently back on a Java project and I feel Josh's pain. Anyhow, I won't let that stop me getting my Scala fix, isn't that what evenings are for?! I hope the following content helps you get your fix too...

My old post on UTF-8 encoding in Spring messages using the ReloadableResourceBundleMessageSource still receives a lot of attention. However, UTF-8 encoding of the messages is just a part of i18n applications. (It's called i18n because the word is internationalisation--i, followed by 18 letters, followed by n--did you know?)

With the fantastic weather outside, I needed to take a break in my training. My legs felt very tired this morning and my heart rate just would not go above 155 bpm: all the signs to take a rest day. Now, rest day for the legs does not mean rest day for the brain! And so, I put some more pages to the Beginning MVC chapter. Download here.

The talk for next week's open source user group is ready. I will give brief overview of Spring 3 MVC and explain how to create native-looking iPhone web application using as little code as possible.
It would not be a proper user group talk without a live demo, so bring your good selves with your iPhones and we'll create a Spring MVC application that looks just amazing on the iPhone, all within about 25 minutes!

So, Spring MVC fans, let's say you have a @RequestMapping-annotated method in your controller, but you would like to include a custom argument, in addition to the standard ones like Model, HttpServletRequest, and HttpServletResponse.
The solution is to implement a WebArgumentResolver. As an example, we'll create a CurrentDateWebArgumentResolver; as its name suggests, this resolver will be able to set any Date argument in the controller method to current date.

I will be presenting my Spring MVC talk at the next Java User Group meet up on 20th October, this time at UCL. It won't be just a repeat of the old talk, there will be some very interesting changes.

Oh, and one more thing!

I had the privilege of giving a talk on Spring MVC at yesterday's Milan JUG meeting. I had a full room of Java programmers keen to find out about how to write Spring MVC web applications. I hope that all attendees went away with good understanding of just how easy it is to write the Ms, Vs and Cs in Spring MVC.
You can download the source code of the talk from ; the PDF version of the talk is available here.
