We are pleased to announce the second Release Candidate of the Spring Cloud Function - 2.0.0.RC2.

Individual modules of Spring Cloud Function 2.0.0.RC2 are available for use in the Spring Milestone repository.

As a follow up to 2.0.0.RC1, this release primarily encompasses minor enhancements and bug fixes.
As it stands now this should be the final Release Candidate before General Availability release 2.0.0.RELEASE in several weeks.

Spring Cloud Pipelines to Cloud Pipelines Migration

Spring Cloud Pipelines is a GitHub project that tries to solve the following problems:

  • Creation of a common deployment pipeline

  • Propagation of good testing and deployment practices

  • Reducing the time required to deploy a feature to production.

The first commit took place on 31-08-2016. Since then, we have gotten a lot of feedback from the community related to the suggested deployment pipeline and its concrete visualisations. Over those two years, the most important features we have managed to build are:

  • Opinionated deployment pipeline setup

  • Scripts for the pipeline, to verify backward compatibility of your project and allow zero-downtime deployment

  • Support for PHP, .NET, NodeJS, and JVM (Maven & Gradle) projects

  • Deployment option for Cloud Foundry

  • Deployment option for Kubernetes

  • Deployment option via Ansible

  • Pipeline visualisation in Jenkins by using Jenkins Job DSL

  • Pipeline visualisation in Jenkins by using Jenkinsfile

  • Pipeline visualisation in Concourse

We would like to announce the next 1.0.0.M9 release of Spring Cloud Pipelines, which will also be its last in the current form.

Spring Boot in a Container

Many people are using containers to wrap their Spring Boot applications, and building containers is not a simple thing to do. This is an article for developers of Spring Boot applications, and containers are not always a good abstraction for developers - they force you to learn about and think about very low level concerns - but you will on occasion be called on to create or use a container, so it pays to understand the building blocks. Here we aim to show you some of the choices you can make if you are faced with the prospect of needing to create your own container.

Spring CredHub 2.0.0.M1 released

I’m pleased to announce the first milestone release of Spring CredHub 2.0.0, available now in the Spring milestone repository.

CredHub

CredHub provides centralized credential management to the Cloud Foundry platform. CredHub implements an HTTP API to securely store, generate, retrieve, and delete credentials of various types.

Spring CredHub provides a Java binding for the CredHub API, making it easy to integrate Spring applications with CredHub.

The 2.0.0 release brings support for CredHub server versions 1.x and 2.x, and the CredHub v1 and v2 APIs. This release also provides compatibility with Spring Framework 5 and Spring Boot 2. The GA release of Spring CredHub 2.0.0 will add a reactive alternative to the existing interfaces.

Project Update: Spring Cloud Data Flow for Apache Mesos and Apache YARN

Dear Spring community,

The Spring Cloud Data Flow team have been happy stewards of the Spring Cloud Deployer and Spring Cloud Data Flow implementations of Apache Mesos and Apache YARN.

We now feel that TrustedChoice.com will be a better home for Apache Mesos implementation of Spring Cloud Deployer and Spring Cloud Data Flow, and we are donating the projects to them to carry it forward.

The development will now be managed directly by the team (Adam J. Weigold, Phil Egelston, Justin Mathieu, and Cole Anderson) at TrustedChoice.com, as the Spring Cloud Data Flow team will no longer maintain it.
