Spring Integration 5.0 GA Available

Releases | Artem Bilan | November 29, 2017 | ...

On behalf of the Spring Integration team I am pleased to announce that the GA release for the Spring Integration 5.0 version (5.0.0.RELEASE) is now available.

It can be downloaded from Maven Central, JCenter, and our release repository:

compile "org.springframework.integration:spring-integration-core:5.0.0.RELEASE"

First of all, special thanks to all community members for their ongoing active contributions to the framework!

Several JIRAs (and some GitHub issues), since the previously announced RC1, are included in this release, mostly bug fixes from early adopters and Reference Manual improvements.

Well, this was a long story (almost 17 months) to come to this next generation for the Framework and here are some highlights of the major features:

  • The Spring Framework 5.0 code base with more reach functionality via Java 8 features;

  • Upgrade to the latest Spring projects dependencies with some new functionality from there;

  • Java DSL is now included into the Core project with a bunch of improvements and more organic Java 8 integration and code base;

  • Reactive Streams support via FluxMessageChannel, ReactiveStreamsConsumer and direct org.reactivestreams.Subscriber implementation in the AbstractMessageHandler;

  • New Spring WebFlux module with full Reactive support for requests and replies;

  • New Spring Integration Testing Framework with the @SpringIntegrationTest and MockIntegration features;

  • - Significant performance boost for most POJO EIP method invocations.

For a complete list of changes in 5.0, also see the What’s New chapter in the reference manual.

In addition we have released maintenance 4.3.13 version with a bunch of important bug fixes and improvements.


I along with most of my colleagues on the Spring team will be at Spring One Platform speaking about these new features in Spring Integration. Please, meet me there to hear about these amazing features from first hands!
