Dependency Management Plugin 1.0.0.RC1

It’s my pleasure to announce that 1.0.0.RC1 of the Dependency Management Plugin has been released. It’s available from Gradle’s Plugin Portal as well as Maven Central and Bintray.

What’s new?

The plugin’s been rewritten in Java and its API has been formalised. A clear separation between that API and the plugin’s internals has been introduced. This has required a few breaking changes but you are unlikely to be affected if you were using the Groovy DSL.

Converting to Java and formalising the API has also enabled a couple of enhancements:

Reactor Kafka 1.0.0.M1 released

We are pleased to announce the release of the first milestone of Reactor Kafka 1.0.0.

What is Reactor Kafka?

Reactor Kafka is a reactive API for Apache Kafka based on Project Reactor. Reactor Kafka API enables messages to be published to Kafka topics and consumed from Kafka topics using functional APIs with non-blocking back-pressure and very low overheads. This enables applications using Reactor to use Kafka as a message bus or streaming platform and integrate with other systems to provide an end-to-end reactive pipeline.

The value proposition for Reactor Kafka is the efficient utilization of resources in applications with multiple external interactions where Kafka is one of the external systems. End-to-end reactive pipelines benefit from non-blocking back-pressure and efficient use of threads, enabling a large number of concurrent requests to be processed efficiently. The optimizations provided by Project Reactor enable development of reactive applications with very low overheads and predictable capacity planning to deliver low-latency, high-throughput pipelines.
