Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire 1.0.0.M1 Released!

Greetings Spring & Apache Geode/Pivotal GemFire communities-

I am happy to announce the first milestone release of Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire, version 1.0.0.M1.

This is a great new project building on the work started in Spring Data for Apache Geode/Pivotal GemFire nearly 2 years ago, when we introduced annotation-based configuration.

With Spring Boot’s "convention over configuration" approach using auto-configuration, this project takes configuration and development of Spring Boot, Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire applications to the next level, whether building and running applications in a stand-alone or a managed environment like Pivotal CloudFoundry (PCF), when using Pivotal Cloud Cache (PCC).

Spring Session for Apache Geode/Pivotal GemFire 2.0.3.RELEASE Released!

Greetings Spring & Apache Geode/Pivotal GemFire community.

It is my pleasure to announce the release of Spring Session for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire 2.0.3.RELEASE. This release aligns with Spring Session core 2.0.3.RELEASE and Spring Data Kay-SR7.

Of course, Spring Session core 2.0.4.RELEASE and Spring Data Kay-SR8 are already available and you can expect another release of Spring Session for Apache Geode/Pivotal GemFire in early July. This is an intermediate release with:

  • Upgrades to Gradle 4.8, using Spring Build Conventions Gradle Plugin 0.0.16.RELEASE.

  • Updated dependencies (as noted above).

  • Switched dependency management to Spring Boot’s Dependency BOM, based on Spring Boot 2.0.2.RELEASE to better align with the Spring ecosystem of projects and 3rd party dependencies.

$ diff -q spring-data-gemfire spring-data-geode

Greetings Spring Community and Pivotal GemFire/Apache Geode Users-

One question I constantly get asked is, "What is the difference between Spring Data GemFire and Spring Data Geode?"

Now that Spring Data Geode is part of the Spring Data Release Train, beginning with Kay (see the official release announcement for more details), the timing is finally right to answer this question in an open forum.

To help answer this question, I set 2 simple objectives for both Spring Data GemFire and Spring Data Geode (collectively known as SDG^2 now):
