Announcing Spring Cloud Stream Horsham.M3 (3.0.0.M3)

We are pleased to announce the third Milestone of the Spring Cloud Stream Horsham.M3 (3.0.0.M3).

NOTE: Spring Cloud Stream 3.0.0.M1/M2 was primarily to establish compatibility with Spring Boot 2.2.x. and therefore went unannounced.

Spring Cloud Stream Horsham.M3 (3.0.0.M3) modules are available for use in the Spring Milestone repository.

Quick highlights:

  • Spring Boot 2.2.x
  • Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M2

Notable features and enhancements for this milestone:

Emphasis on functional programming model

While we’re not (yet) deprecating @StreamListener and/or @EnableBinding, we are moving toward a simpler and more natural auto-configuration driven programming model.

Securing Services with Spring Cloud Gateway

So far in this series, we’ve covered Getting Started and Hiding Services with Spring Cloud Gateway. However, when we set about hiding our services, we didn’t secure them. In this article, we’ll correct this.

To secure our services, we’ll use the Token Relay pattern supported by OAuth 2.0 and the Javascript Object Signing & Encryption (JOSE) and JSON Web Tokens standards. This will give our users a means to identify themselves, authorize applications to view their profile and access the secured resources behind the gateway.

Announcing Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M2

We are pleased to announce the second Milestone of the Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M2.

NOTE: Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M1 was primarily to establish compatibility with Spring Boot 2.2.x. and therefore went unannounced.

Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M2 modules are available for use in the Spring Milestone repository.

Quick highlights:

  • Spring Boot 2.2.x
  • Enhanced deployer (requires a separate blog)

Notable features and enhancements:

Function arity (multiple inputs/outputs)

One of the biggest features introduced with this milestone is support for functions with multiple inputs and outputs. Important thing to point out is that this feature only makes sense in reactive world where you may want to pass several streams to a function for purposes of doing some type of aggregate/merge operation on such streams. For conventional cases you can always send multiple arguments using a Collection of some type.

As with the previous release, 1.1.0.RC1, we continue our story on caching using Apache Geode as a caching provider in Spring’s Cache Abstraction for Near Caching.

This release contains a Sample Guide along with Code Example, a Spring Boot application, to help you better understand the Near Caching pattern applied and its concepts.

This completes our coverage of the predominant caching patterns applied to modern, Cloud-Native, Microservices architectures and applications in practice today:

This Week in Spring - August 13, 2019

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of a This Week in Spring! I’ve just finished one of the most amazing experiences of my life - O’Reilly’s “Foo Camp,” an unconference where invited guests can camp on the O’Reilly Media campus headquarters and talk to each other. I met, among a zillion other people, former California governor Jerry Brown, former Estonian president Toomas Hendrik Ilves, and so many more. Now I’m in terrific Texas talking to our wonderful customers in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas and Plano. I’m also speaking at the Dallas MUG tomorrow night, if you’re around and want to come and hang out.
