Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in Brisbane, Australia, on the second leg of the YOW! conference circuit. If you’re around, please say hi or find me when YOW! moves to Sydney in a few days.
We’ve got a lot to cover so let’s get to it!
- If you’re not up to date with JUnit 5.0 and Spring Framework, this is a must - see talk from Sam Brannen at Swiftmind
- good news! the webinar introducing CQRS with Axon and Spring Boot that Axon lead and founder Allard Buijze and I delivered is now online
- Spring Integration lead Gary Russell just announced Spring Integration 5.0 M1. This release features a lot of nice new features and simplifies some older ones. One of my favorite features: it packages the Java DSL in the framework itself now, instead of a separate release! Get the bits, kick the tires.
- Janne Valkealahti has just announced Spring Statemachine 1.2.0.RC1. This release has lots of small enhancements and bug fixes as well as new APIs for tracing and monitoring and full support for repositories in Redis, MongoDB, and JPA.
