This Week in Spring - September 12th, 2017
Hi Spring fans! This week I'm in Singapore for the amazing YOW! Singapore event and talking to customers.
Also, I'll be doing a meetup on testing - don't miss it!
- It's almost time for Spring 5! Spring Framework lead Juergen Hoeller just announced Spring Framework 5.0.RC4, which is aligned with Spring Boot 2.0.M4, JUnit 5, and Reactor 3.1 RC1. This might be your last chance to kick the tires before the big release! There's so much new stuff in this release!
- This is pretty interesting! There's a Spring Cloud Config Server MongoDB project in the Spring Cloud incubator. Try it out!
- Spring framework ninja Stéphane Nicoll just announced Spring Framework 4.3.11.
- Spring Cloud and Spring Data ninja Mark Paluch just announced Spring Cloud Vault 1.1.0.RC1. This release includes pull-mode support for
AppRole authentication and new HTML styling for the documentation.
- Spring Data ninja Mark Paluch has just announced the availability of Spring Data Ingalls Sr7 and Kay RC3. The new releases are both recommended updates.
- Want to learn more about the reactive support in Spring Framework 5.0.GA? Do not miss this forthcoming October 4 webinar!
- Our buddy Matt Raible did a nice roundup over on the Okta blog of NoSQL options for Java developers. The post is mostly a very interestingg discussion of technology uptake, but it does also highlight which modules are supported in Spring.
- Hot on the trail of JUnit 5.0.GA, JUnit and Spring Framework contributor Sam Brannen just updated a sample application to use JUnit 5.0. Check it out!
- At long last, JUnit 5 is now here! There's a lot of good stuff in this release so be sure to check out the release notes!
- Mark Reinhold, chief architect of the Java platform, has proposed moving Java to a predictable, and more frequent, release cycle. Read more about this proposal here.
- I loved this installment of Microsoft Azure Fridays where Sean McKenna introduces Cloud Foundry to Microsoft legend Scott Hanselman.
