This Week in Spring - June 16th, 2015

Engineering | Josh Long | June 16, 2015 | ...

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I'm in sunny London for Devoxx UK where I'll be talking to developers about building cloud-native applications with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, and Cloud Foundry. As usual, if you're in the area, hit me up. The big news this week is the Spring XD 1.2 GA blowing the doors off performance numbers! No benchmarketing here, everything is published and reproducible: Performance turning to get ~12 MILLION msg/sec with an in-memory transport and 2.6MILLION msg/sec when using Kafka (100 byte messages). Lots more detail in the performance blog. And we haven't even talked about the Amabari installer or the containerload of new features.

including the fabulous devtools module that supports tools that are particularly useful at development time: view template reloading, remote-debugging, a live-reloader of sorts, and much more. It also offer one of my all-time favorite Spring Boot features: executable .jars! With this new feature, you can run mvn clean install and then run ./foo.jar on a UNIX-like environment and it just works!
