Next Generation OAuth 2.0 Support with Spring Security

Current State

The current state of OAuth 2.0 Support, within the Spring projects portfolio, is spread out between Spring Security OAuth, Spring Cloud Security, Spring Boot 1.5.x, and the new support introduced in Spring Security 5. As a user of OAuth, you may be asking, "Which project(s) do I use? And why has Spring Security 5 introduced new support into the mix?"

To put it simply, there was a need to unify the OAuth 2.0 support into one project in order to provide a clear choice to the user and to avoid any potential confusion. In addition, the OAuth 2.0 support needed to take the next level and provide more extensive support for OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect 1.0. Also, based on community feedback, documentation needed to be re-vamped in order to allow for ease of use and promote developer productivity. Based on all these factors, we decided to start afresh and build the next generation of OAuth 2.0 support in Spring Security 5.

Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.3.0.RC1 released

We are pleased to announce the 1.3.0.RC1 release of the Spring Cloud Data Flow and its associated ecosystem of projects.

Follow the Getting Started guides for Local Server, Cloud Foundry, and Kubernetes.

Release Highlights

Feature toggle for Skipper

To simplify the overall experience of opting into using Skipper to deploy streams, a feature toggle provides you the ability to switch between skipper mode and the previous 'classic' mode. The feature toggle is used in both the Shell and the Server. The default value is to use the 'classic' non-skipper mode. To enable skipper mode, pass in the following Spring Boot options.

java -jar spring-cloud-dataflow-server-local-1.3.0.RC1.jar  \

java -jar spring-cloud-dataflow-shell-1.3.0.RC1.jar --dataflow.mode=skipper

This also allowed us to remove stream skipper commands introduced in 1.3 M3 and collapse skipper behavior into stream commands.


Spring Data Ingalls SR10 and Kay SR3 released

On behalf of the Spring Data team, I’d like to announce the Ingalls SR10 and Kay SR3 service releases. The Ingalls service release ships on top of the just-released Spring Framework 4.3.14 and in preparation of the upcoming Spring Boot 1.5.10 release. The Kay service release picks up Spring Framework 5.0.3 in and will be picked up by Spring Boot 2.0 RC1 for your convenience.

Both releases ship with 105 tickets fixed in total and are recommended upgrades to all users of the Ingalls and Kay release trains. You can find all details within the linked changelogs.


Spring Framework 5.0.3 and 4.3.14 available now

Dear Spring community,

I’m pleased to announce that Spring Framework 5.0.3 and 4.3.14 are available now, as another pair of refinement releases which are recommended as immediate upgrades for all users. Our 5.0.3 release is the foundation for the upcoming Spring Boot 2.0 RC1 release next week, and 4.3.14 will be picked up by Boot 1.5.10 around the same time.

Spring Framework 5.0.3 comes with fresh support for Kotlin 1.2.20, Reactor Core 3.1.3 and JUnit 5.0.3 and has been successfully tested on the latest JDK 10 early-access builds already.
It also includes fixes for a few recent regressions and selected refinements in the WebFlux APIs, just in time for moving 5.0.x into maintenance mode and preparing for the 5.1 line.

This Week in Spring - January 16th, 2018

Aloha! This week I’m in sunny Honolulu for the first annual LavaOne conference. If you’re not here, you should be! The show is amazing, enjoys 50% female to male audience attendance, the speakers are world-class (well, except yours truly, but don’t tell them that..) and the location is pretty hard to beat!

That said, nothing gives me more pleasure than saddling up to a table with a laptop, some green tea, sunglasses and sunscreen lotion and checking in on the community. This week’s been a heckuva week indeed! Lot’s of great stuff so let’s get to it!
