Spring Integration 5.0 Milestone 7 and 4.3.12 Available

On behalf of the Spring Integration team I am pleased to announce that the Milestone 7 for the Spring Integration 5.0 version (5.0.0.M7) is now available.

It is available for download from the Milestone Repository:

repositories {
    maven { url '' }
compile "org.springframework.integration:spring-integration-core:5.0.0.M7"

21 JIRAs (and some GitHub issues) made into this release, including bug fixes and a number of new features. Some highlights of features in the M7, since the previously announced Milestone 6:

  • Reactive WebFlux Channel Adapters has been extracted to the separate spring-integration-webflux module to distinguish Servlet-based MVC configuration from the Reactive foundation.

  • The EmbeddedJsonHeadersMessageMapper is introduced to allow embedding message headers together with the payload into packages for target protocols which doesn’t support headers natively, for example TCP/IP, MQTT, AWS Kinesis and Apache Kafka before version 0.11.x.

  • The java.util.function.Supplier can now act as a MessageSource:


@InboundChannelAdapter(value = "myChannel")
public Supplier<Integer> counterMessageSupplier(AtomicInteger counter) {
    return () -> counter.incrementAndGet();
  • a spring.integration.endpoints.noAutoStartup global integration property has been added to configure patterns for endpoints which should not be started automatically on the application start up.

Special thanks to several community members for their ongoing active contributions to the framework; scan the commits and give them some kudos!

For a complete list of changes in 5.0, also see the What’s New chapter in the reference manual.

There are still several features (Reactive and Testing) we would like to include into the current version, so stay tuned for next Milestones! We expect RC and subsequent GA somewhere in the end of October, beginning of November, - just before Spring Boot 2.0 GA!

In addition version 4.3.12 has been released as well with some valuable bug fixes. It is already a part of Spring Boot 1.5.7 and it is recommended to upgrade for better experience.

Any feedback, feature ideas, critics, bug reports and questions are welcome via appropriate communication channels:
