Spring AMQP 1.7 RC1 available now

On behalf of the Spring Integration team I’d like to announce the first (and final) Release Candidate of Spring AMQP 1.7, which is available in the Milestone Repository.

This release is mainly an intermediate between version 1.6.x and 2.0 for Spring Boot 1.5 and IO Platform Brussels compatibility.

Anyway there are several improvements and new features to explain here:

  • Upgrade to Amqp Client 4.0 with appropriate RabbitConnectionFactoryBean changes

  • Upgrade to Log4j 2.7 and required braking change fix for the log4j2.AmqpAppender

  • Upgrade to Spring Retry 1.2 with important StatefulRetryOperationsInterceptor.setUseRawKey(true) for backward compatibility

  • a new spring-rabbit-junit artifact is provided with several utilities (like BrokerRunning @Rule) which can be useful for testing Spring AMQP applications

  • The SimpleMessageListenerContainer can now be started without queues to listen to at all. They can be provided later at runtime via addQueues()

  • a ConnectionNameStrategy is provided for the ConnectionFactory to allow to identify application connections in the Broker or other monitoring and tracing tools

Also thanks to all the Community members who provide contributions any way, especially for reporting bugs and immediate fixes for them.

We are expecting GA release just before Spring Boot 1.5 GA, so there is plenty of time to try this release out and come back to us with any feedbacks. At the same time we are working on Spring AMQP 2.0 based on Spring Framework 5.0 and Java 8 features.
