Spring Session 2.0.0 M4

On behalf of the community I’m pleased to announce the release of Spring Session 2.0.0.M4. This release is focused primarily on refining WebFlux support. The highlights are:

Simplified WebFlux Configuration

Configuring Spring Session for WebFlux is simplified to be:

public class HelloWebfluxSessionConfig {

  public MapReactorSessionRepository reactorSessionRepository() {
    return new MapReactorSessionRepository(new ConcurrentHashMap<>());

You can also switch the strategy for resolving session id’s by simply adding a WebSessionIdResolver Bean. For example, to switch from using cookies to resolve the session id to using headers, you can use Spring Framework’s new HeaderWebSessionIdResolver:

public HeaderWebSessionIdResolver webSessionIdResolver() {
  return new HeaderWebSessionIdResolver();

WebFlux Sample Application

We have added a webflux sample application that demonstrates how to do WebFlux session management.

WebFlux Session Refactoring

We also spent some time refining the APIs within Spring Framework’s WebSession management APIs. While this might not seem important to Spring Session, it ended up letting us delete quite a bit of code within Spring Session which is always a big win!

Feedback Please

If you have feedback on this release, I encourage you to reach out via StackOverflow, GitHub Issues, or via the comments section. You can also ping me @rob_winch, Joe @joe_grandja, or Vedran @vedran_pavic on Twitter.

Of course the best feedback comes in the form of contributions.
