Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m off to Germany where I’ll be speaking at the Java User Group in Münster on Wednesday night. Then, it’s off to Solingen for a Cloud Native day on the 12th (this Friday) where I’ll be presenting all afternoon - register now! And, if you’re closer to the Pacific ocean than the Atlantic ocean, join me next Monday in Hawaii and we’ll talk about all things Spring at the very promising LavaOne conference.
As usual, we’ve got a lot to cover so let’s get to it.
- There’s new support for auto-configuring the Reactor-based Cloud Foundry Java client in Spring Cloud. This is exciting for me because that Java client is such a powerful tool that takes so long to configure.
- There’s a new guide on using Spring Cloud contract by community legend Erdem Günay.
- The Baeldung blog have a nice look at bootstrapping Hibernate 5 with Spring
- The first raft of Spring Days events have been announced! Do not miss these events in a city near you! I’ll be there along with other Pivotal peeps. Join us.
- The Apigee Edge Service Broker 3.0 for Pivotal Cloud Foundry has just arrived.
- Check out this Spanish-language post on using Spring Cloud Contract.
- The Resilience4J project is an interesting looking library containing implementations of things like circuit breakers and retry handlers and it has nice looking Spring Boot integrations. I hope Spring Cloud one day integrates this. In the meantime, check it out.
- Epic Spring Data for Apache Geode lead John Blum gave an interview to the epic Software Engineering Daily podcast: give it a listen.
- Dan Vega has an interesting video on installing the Spring Boot CLI in a Windows environment
- I gave an interview to Faros Belgium during last month’s epic SpringOne Platform 2017 event.
- The Cloud Foundry Foundation security team has detailed the response for Cloud Foundry users for the Spectrum and Meltdown flaws recently discovered in CPUs. These kinds of vulnerabilities are exactly where a centralized platform like Cloud Foundry can make all the difference in the world - mitigate the issue centrally and see it deployed automatically.
- Tristan Perry put together a nice Spring Cloud microservices tutorial.
