Introducing Spring Shell 2.0M1!

We are pleased to announce the first release milestone of Spring Shell 2.x!

Two years in the making, Spring Shell 2 is a complete rewrite of Spring Shell, leveraging newer components (such as JLine 3) and applying better modularization. Spring Shell 2 is also built with Spring Boot in mind, making use of auto configuration and other boot features.

The internal architecture now uses a pluggable model to discover what methods to turn into commands, how to parse user input into argument values and how to handle return values. This is very similar to the approach taken by Spring MVC for example and allows extensions of the framework in ways that were not previously possible. Users of Spring Shell would typically not care though, only dealing with the new “standard” command API to define their commands.
