Mario Gray is a Principal Technologist at VMware with over 20 years of experience in software development and software architecture. He is co-author of Apress's Pro Spring Integration. Stay tuned for the next installment. He’s helped organizations large and small build service-based architectures in a number of different runtimes and platforms over the decades, but adopting Spring in 2004, and using it whenever possible since, was a no-brainer that culminated in joining the Spring team in 2017.
