Spring Cloud Edgware EOL Aug 1st 2019

Spring Cloud Edgware will follow the Spring Boot 1.x EOL announcement. We will cease maintenance of the Edgware release train twelve months from today, on Aug 1st 2019.

We will keep publishing occasional Edgware service releases up until that point and will then end the release train.

As a reminder, the Camden release train has reached EOL, and Dalston will reach EOL at the end of December 2018.

Existing Spring Cloud users should plan accordingly to ensure that they have upgraded to the latest Finchley+ version before that date. Also, please note that Spring Cloud Finchley and later requires Spring Boot 2.x, which requires Java 8+. So, if you’re running Java 6 or 7 you should also plan on upgrading your JDK.

Spring Boot 1.x EOL Aug 1st 2019

All good things must come to an end, and for the 1.x line of Spring Boot that means we will need to cease maintenance twelve months from today, on Aug 1st 2019.

We will keep publishing occasional 1.5.x maintenance releases up until that point and will then end the branch.

Existing Spring Boot 1.x users should plan accordingly to ensure that they have upgraded to the latest 2.x version before that date. Please also note that Spring Boot 2.0 and above requires Java 8+, so if you’re running Java 6 or 7 you should also plan on upgrading your JDK.

Spring IO Platform end-of-life announcement

Maintenance of the Spring IO Platform will end twelve months from today, 9 April 2019, and the project will be moved to the attic. Maintenance releases of both the Brussels and Cairo lines will continue to be published up until that time.

When the Platform was first introduced almost four years ago it provided dependency management for a number of projects that were not managed by Spring Boot. In recent releases that number has decreased and would have continued to do so in the future as the Spring portfolio continues to evolve.

Spring for Apache Hadoop project End-Of-Life announcement

Dear Spring community,

The Spring team hereby announces that the Spring for Apache Hadoop project will reach End-Of-Life status twelve months from today on April 5th, 2019. We will publish occasional 2.5.x maintenance releases as needed up until that point and will then move the project to the attic. The current Spring for Apache Hadoop 2.5.0 release is built using Apache Hadoop version 2.7.3 and should be compatible with the latest releases of the most popular Hadoop distributions.

The Spring Cloud Stream App Starter - HDFS Sink applications rely on the Spring for Apache Hadoop project. Moving forward, we will port the required capabilities directly onto the HDFS App Starter project. Spring Cloud Data Flow would continue to orchestrate the HDFS sink applications into coherent streaming pipelines.

It’s never been a better time to be a Spring Developer

Posting this on behalf of Mark Heckler, from the Pivotal evangelist team.

The last 12 months have been incredible for Spring developers. In that time, we’ve seen Spring Framework 5.0, Spring Boot 2, and Project Reactor go GA. We’ve also had new and updated component releases in every major Spring project! There’s never been a better time to be a Spring dev!

With all of these new tools and features, how can you keep up? How can you learn the most, in the shortest amount of time, from Spring team developers and key contributors? Come to SpringOne Platform, of course! This September 24-27 we will all be gathering at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, MD (near Washington, D.C.) to dive deep into the new bits and discuss (and show) how to put them to full use, at full velocity. The week will be packed with live coding and lively conversations, and you’re invited to be a part of it!

There's no place like production. SpringOne Platform will illuminate the path.

Hi Spring fans!

My favorite time of the year is almost here! It’s that special time when people reunite, in the northern hemisphere’s chilly December to give freely and unconditionally of one another; when people have jovial discussions (and sometimes heated debates) over dinner with people they admire; when people open their hearts and minds to each other; when we reflect on the year behind us and look forward to tomorrow, the next week and the next year; when amazing new memories we’ll cherish forever are forged. It’s that special time of giving, of openness. I don’t need to tell you about this special time, though! Of course, I’m talking about the time of the year for SpringOne Platform! (What else could I have been talking about?)

Webinar April 13th: Spring Boot Under the Hood

Speakers: Nicolas Fränkel, Hybris

With the Spring Boot stack you can kickstart your Spring project in a matter of minutes. For both developers using Spring and microservices adopters, Spring Boot has been a resounding success.

Favoring Spring Boot over the traditional Spring framework comes at a cost, you have to let Boot be in control and it might hurt when you decide to get back in the driving seat.

Come to this 60 minute webinar and discover how auto-configuration and the different flavors of conditionals work through the creation of a Spring Boot starter. You’ll come away with an understanding of Spring Boot internals, how to debug better, and be able to develop your own starter.

Webinar: Strategic (Domain Driven) Design with Spring Boot

Speaker: Michael Plöd, InnoQ

This talk will focus on one of the most precious parts of Domain Driven Design, the concept of Strategic Design, as well as Bounded Context, the Context Map and the patterns that are being documented in the Context Map.

An explanation of these principles as well as practical usage scenarios such as migrating a monolithic landscape to microservices is planned for discussion. And, using a hands-on approach, we will demonstrate the concepts surrounding Strategic Design with an application landscape of various Spring Boot Applications
