There are some interesting new features in Spring Boot 1.3 that are now available in Spring Cloud in the Brixton release train. The Angel release train of Spring Cloud is partly incompatible with Spring Boot 1.3, so when you upgrade there are some important things to be aware of. This article helps you navigate the changes and update any existing apps to use the new features. It should also be helpful generally when trying to adopt new versions of Spring projects into existing codebases.
WARNING: The rules for dependency resolution in the case of conflict when using Gradle appear to be unclear, and may depend on more than we say in the article. This came to light as a result of testing the code in the blog, so we are still discussing how to resolve things. It might be a bug in the Gradle tooling.
TIP: You can use
gradle dependenciesto list the dependencies in your project and check the versions.
