Introducing Spring Cloud Function

Spring Cloud Function is a new project with the following high-level goals:

  • Promote the implementation of business logic via functions.
  • Decouple the development lifecycle of business logic from any specific runtime target so that the same code can run as a web endpoint, a stream processor, or a task.
  • Support a uniform programming model across serverless providers, as well as the ability to run standalone (locally or in a PaaS).
  • Enable Spring Boot features (auto-configuration, dependency injection, metrics) on serverless providers.

Spring Session MongoDB 2.0.0.M1 released

Dear Spring Community,

Last month, Spring Session lead Rob Winch announced the release of Spring Session 2.0.0.M1 (notice the lack of MongoDB there?) In that post, he pared back Spring Session to officially supporting Redis, JDBC, and Hazelcast. No more MongoDB.

I’m here to announce that I’ve pick up the torch for Spring Session MongoDB. Managing both Spring Session and Spring Security (among other responsibilities), Rob couldn’t maintain high caliber support with too many data stores. Being a member of the Spring Data team, I felt better suited toward providing MongoDB support of Spring Session, so I reinstated it as a separate project.

This Week in Spring - June 13th, 2017

Hi Spring fans! This week I’m in Redmond, hanging out with our friends and Pivotal partner Microsoft talking about Cloud Foundry on Microsoft Azure. As you may know, Microsoft’s Azure IaaS platform is the #2 most widely used cloud and it’s growing! It’s got more datacenters than the other two cloud vendors in more regions (including in Germany and China!) and a huge raft of services that support both Windows and Linux operating systems. There’s so much exciting stuff coming up including Azure Stack, which runs Azure on-premise, and the amazing integration between Azure and PCF. I’m looking forward to hearing even more about Microsoft Azure this week at CF Summit in Santa Clara, which is where I’ll be on Wednesday and then it’s off to Utah for the Utah JUG. Come out, join me, and say hi!
