Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.5.0 Released

The Spring Cloud Data Flow team is pleased to announce the 1.5.0 GA release. Follow the Getting Started guides for Local Server, Cloud Foundry, and Kubernetes.

Here are the highlights:

  • UI Improvements

  • Spring Boot, Spring Cloud Stream 2.0, and Spring Cloud Task 2.0 Support

  • Updated Application Starters

  • Metrics Improvements

  • Nested splits for Composed Tasks

  • Kubernetes Improvements

  • Updated File Ingest sample

UI Improvements

We have continued to improve the UI/UX of the Dashboard. We hope that you will immediately notice an overall lighter weight design. The Tasks tab has been rewritten to match the UX styling of the other tabs. A new paginator component has been added to all the list pages. Switching from a list of 20, 30, 50, or 100 items per page is possible. This further simplifies the bulk operation workflows.

The updated Stream Builder tab makes is easy to deploy Stream Definitions and update deployed streams. You can edit application and deployment properties as well as change the version of individual applications in the stream and re-deploy. Data Flow’s integration with Skipper handles the upgrade process, allowing for easy rollback in case the upgrade doesn’t go as planned. The Stream Builder tab also includes many optimizations, including better form validation and eager error reporting. Try it out!

Stream Builder Tab

There has also been a significant amount of refactoring to optimize the code base and prepare for future extensions and feature additions. End-to-end testing with Selenium and SauceLabs has also been added.
