Integrating Spring Boot Applications Headless with BloomReach Experience Manager
Recently, BloomReach released the SPA++ support. You can use the same feature to also integrate with other application frameworks such as Spring Boot. Together with a powerful and experimental proxy service it will make the integration with the channel manager easier and it will support all the Experience features such as drag-and-drop components, editing component parameters and even relevance without any specific code in your Spring Boot application. Using this feature, you can implement your projects using all the advantages of a microservices architecture, but still manage it from the BloomReach Experience Platform.

Fast Single Page Application implementation with Next.js and the Experience React SDK
Front-end development is evolving constantly and it's a challenge to integrate new libraries and frameworks in your existing application. In this talk, Timo Westland (Incentro) and Nuno Mendes (BloomReach) highlight a super fast SPA++ implementation, using server-side rendering with Next.js, the Experience React SDK and reverse proxy with the URL Rewriter across 40+ channels with a common library for the core components. A great case on how to get started with popular JS front-end frameworks such as Angular or React with the Experience SDK's.
