Hi Spring fans!
Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I just wrapped up the last two talks or workshops I’ll do this year. Yesterday we spent four hours looking at Reactive Spring and today we spent four hours looking at Spring Boot and Kotlin. I love doing these sorts of trainings because I really get to dive deep on topics with my audiences. It’s, truly, one of the rare pleasures in an otherwise hectic schedule. Needless to say, I am super relaxed and happy as I write this and I hope you are too!
You realize it’s already December 18th, 2018, already? Gee time flies when you’re having fun! The next installment of This Week in Spring is on the 25th, which, for some in the world, is the holiday Christmas. If that includes you, then let us be the first to wish you and yours the merriest of Christmases!
Next week’s installment will also be the last installment in 2018 which means that it’ll be another installment of our annual year-end spectacular, This Year in Spring! Don’t miss it! (Or do; it’ll be there waiting for you the next day :-))
What do you think were the biggest events and announcements in 2018 in Spring and its satellite ecosystems like Java, NoSQL, enterprise application integration, Reactive Programming, Kotlin, Groovy, Scala, microservices, batch processing and so on?

- Do you really want to use a reactive facade on top of a blocking abstraction like JDBC? Really? And you’re sure that you understand that the library might saturate your threadpool? And you’re sure that you can’t use one of the natively reactive options from R2DBC (H2, PostgreSQL, or Microsoft SQL Server)? Then check out this library that provides a Project Reactor-powered facade on top of blocking- and non-reactive components like JDBC and JPA . But remember, it isn’t really reactive!
