Spring Cloud Finchley.M5 Released

Releases | Spencer Gibb | December 05, 2017 | ...

On behalf of the team and community, I am pleased to announce that the Milestone 5 (M5) of the Spring Cloud Finchley Release Train is available today. The release can be found in Spring Milestone repository. You can check out the Finchley release notes for more information.

Notable Changes in the Finchley Release Train

This update contains changes for compatibility with Spring Boot 2.0.0.M7.

Spring Cloud Sleuth

The spans created via the @Async are now always continuing a parent span instead of creating a new one.

Spring Cloud Gateway

The Java fluent API has been updated to provided a better developer experience. All predicates and filters are now discoverable via your IDE's code completion, rather than via static imports. A RouteLocatorBuilder is now available to be injected and is the main entry point for the DSL. IDs are no longer required (a random one will be generated, if not supplied);

public RouteLocator customRouteLocator(RouteLocatorBuilder builder) {
  return builder.routes()
      .route(r -> r.host("**.abc.org").and().path("/image/png")
          .addResponseHeader("X-TestHeader", "foobar")
      .route("webp", r -> r.path("/image/webp")
        .addResponseHeader("X-AnotherHeader", "baz")

The Kotlin DSL has also been updated in a similar fashion.

fun additionalRouteLocator(builder: RouteLocatorBuilder): RouteLocator = builder.routes {
  route() {
    host("kotlin.abc.org") and path("/image/png")
    filters {
      addResponseHeader("X-TestHeader", "foobar")

Spring Cloud Netflix

Upgrade to latest Eureka.

Spring Cloud Bus

A new spring.cloud.bus.id has been introduced to address bus instances rather than the ApplicationContext ID, which needs to be unique per instance of a service. This change should be backwards compatible.

Spring Cloud Commons

A new property has been introduced to disable refresh scope: spring.cloud.refresh.enabled.
