A minor maintenance release of Spring Web Flow is now available for use. The release addresses compatibility issues against Spring Security 4.0 and the Mojarra and Apache MyFaces JSF implementations. For a list of the addressed issues see the release notes JIRA report.
The Spring Blog
We’re pleased to announce a first release candicate of Spring Statemachine 1.0.0.RC1.
Focus of this release is to get core framework more stable and finally add jepsen tests for a distributed state machine. We also added a first version of a testing support. Resolved github tickets can be found from RC1 issues. We’re relatively close to issue a release version, meaning if nothing major pop-up, next release will be a
1.0.0.RELEASE. If something urgent turns up we will do
1.0.0.RC2 prior to a release.
It is my pleasure to announce that Spring Framework 4.2.1 is available from repo.spring.io and Maven Central. This first maintenance release in the 4.2 line contains a wide range of fixes for regressions and other issues reported against 4.2 GA.
4.2.1 also contains minor enhancements: refinement of our Jackson support (see Sébastien’s updated blog post), meta-annotation processing improvements (
@AliasFor), third-party dependencies alignment (including Hibernate 5.0 GA).
We strongly recommend an immediate upgrade to 4.2.1 for all 4.x users. The Spring Framework team is now working towards Spring Framework 4.2.2 in early October, which will be the foundation for the upcoming Spring Boot 1.3 GA release. We will also release 4.1.8 at the same time: if there is anything you’d like to get fixed in the 4.1.x branch still, now is the time to raise it!
Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! The Spring team is hard at work on all the latest and greatest ahead of the SpringOne2GX event in Washington DC! Time is really flying! I can’t beleive what we’re staring down September already! This week I’m in Tokyo, Japan, participating in the Spring User Group’s huge Spring in Summer event where I gave a keynote and two talks, on Spring Boot and Spring Cloud. The one day event attracted some of the company’s largest websites and was a lot of fun!
On behalf of the Spring Data team I’d like to announce the general availability of the Spring Data release train Gosling. Over the last 6 months we’ve fixed 344 tickets in total, 56 of that after the latest release candidate.

Welcome Spring community,
This is the first of several blog entries. In this session, you will see how to get a bare-bones Spring Data REST application up and running quickly. Then you will build a simple UI on top of it using Facebook’s React.js toolset.
Step 0 - Setting up your environment
Feel free to grab the code from this repository and follow along.
If you want to do it yourself, visit http://start.spring.io and pick these items:
- Rest Repositories
This demo uses Java 8, Maven Project, and the latest stable release of Spring Boot. This will give you a clean, empty project. From there, you can add the various files shown explicitly in this session, and/or borrow from the repository listed above.
Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the lovely QCon Rio conference, and then I’m off to Tokyo, Japan for a Spring in Summer conference for local Spring users!
The team is abuzz with excitement leading up to this year’s SpringOne2GX 2016, the biggest and best SpringOne2GX, ever! This year, you’re going to see us do WAY more with WAY less and get it to production, to boot! This is exciting for everyone of us and it will be for audience members, as well!
We are pleased to announce the Spring for Apache Hadoop 2.3 M2 milestone release.
The most important enhancements in this release:
- New batch tasklets: Support for running a simple Spark app [SHDP-397] and for running a simple Sqoop2 Job [SHDP-506]
- Better boot support: Add jobHistoryAddress to SpringHadoopProperties for Boot configuration [SHDP-517]
- YARN: Support dots in yarn container group names [SHDP-515]
See the release changelog for details.
The new support for running a Spark job on YARN via a Spring Batch tasklet opens possibilities for integrating Spark tasks in a larger Spring Batch flow We will show a simple example of this at the upcoming SpringOne 2GX conference during our “Hadoop Workflows and Distributed YARN Apps using Spring technologies” presentation. In this presentation we’ll also explore how Hadoop based apps can take advantage of a cloud-native development approach.
Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! As usual, we’ve got a lot to cover so let’s get to it! This week I’m back in São Paulo, Brazil, to visit customers, then it’s off to Rio for QCon Rio! If you’re in either city, message me on Twitter and let’s grab a coffee!
