Spring Integration Java DSL 1.1 M2 is Available

Releases | Artem Bilan | September 10, 2015 | ...

We are pleased to announce that the Milestone 2 of Spring Integration Java DSL is now available from the Milestone Repository:

For Gradle use this:

compile "org.springframework.integration:spring-integration-java-dsl:1.1.0.M2"

For Maven this:


There are not many new features since Milestone 1, but here are the most important things to which to pay attention:

Spring Integration 4.2 foundation

The Spring Integration Java DSL 1.1 is now based on Spring Integration 4.2 to become part of the upcoming Spring IO 2.0. The 1.1 version of the Java DSL is no longer compatible with Spring Integration 4.1.x.

Spring Integration Kafka 1.2.x upgrade

We now provide the Kafka Namespace Factory for the Spring Integration Kafka Adapters. The new Spring Integration Kafka 1.2 release together with the upgrade to Apache Kafka 0.8.2 brings a number of breaking changes. Hence this Java DSL Milestone 2 of 1.1 is no longer compatible with the previous version of Spring Integration Kafka and Apache Kafka respectively.

HTTP Namespace Factory

The Spring Integration HTTP Adapters are now covered with their specific Http Namespace Factory. Please, meet our classical HTTP Proxy sample, but on Java DSL already:

public IntegrationFlow httpProxyFlow() {
    return IntegrationFlows
        .from((MessagingGateways g) ->
                     .requestMapping(r -> r.params("name"))
                     .payloadFunction(httpEntity ->
                           ((ServletRequestAttributes) RequestContextHolder
        .handleWithAdapter(a ->
              a.httpGateway(m ->
                   String.format("http://target/service?%s", m.getPayload()))

Reactive Streams Support

We are pleased to announce that Spring Integration is beginning to provide integration with Reactive Streams and support for Publisher is presented in the Java DSL directly:

public Publisher<Message<String>> reactiveFlow() {
	return IntegrationFlows
		.from(() -> new GenericMessage<>("a,b,c,d,e,f"))
		.split(String.class, p -> p.split(","))

As you see it is simple to go from the Spring Integration world to the Reactive Streams world. The org.reactivestreams.Publisher bean can be used afterwards as an event source for the Reactive program, e.g. using the Project Reactor implementation:

private Publisher<Message<String>> publisher;
List<String> results = new ArrayList<>();
CountDownLatch latch = new CountDownLatch(6);
	.map(m -> m.getPayload().toUpperCase())
	.consume(p -> {

The other direction - from Reactive Stream to the Spring Integration - is simple enough, too (from Reactor perspective):

.consume(v -> messagingTemplate().convertAndSend(reactorStreamResult(), v));

We will consider some org.reactivestreams.Subscriber option for the MessageChannel implementation in the future release.

Other changes

There have been done other important refactoring and deprecations to make the DSL more fluent, convenient and flexible, such as:

  • The Files.splitter() factory method for the FileSplitter component;
  • The (S)Ftp.outboundGateway() for new MessageSessionCallback (a Spring Integration 4.2 feature);
  • Refactored and improved .aggregate() and .resequence() EIP-methods etc.
