Spring Boot for Apache Geode & VMware GemFire 1.1.7.RELEASE, 1.2.7.RELEASE and 1.3.0.RC1 available!

Releases | John Blum | May 19, 2020 | ...

On behalf of the Spring, Apache Geode and VMware GemFire communities, it is my pleasure to announce the release of Spring Boot for Apache Geode & VMware GemFire (SBDG) 1.1.7.RELEASE, 1.2.7.RELEASE and 1.3.0.RC1.

All bits are available in Maven Central with the exception of 1.3.0.RC1, which is available in Spring’s Milestone Repository.

SBDG 1.1.7.RELEASE builds on Spring Boot 2.1.14.RELEASE. SBDG 1.2.7.RELEASE builds on Spring Boot 2.2.7.RELEASE and SBDG 1.3.0.RC1 builds on Spring Boot 2.3.0.RC1.

The easiest way to get started building Spring Boot applications with Apache Geode is by using Spring Initializer at start.spring.io either with Spring Boot 2.2.7 or with Spring Boot 2.3.0.

Whats’s New

The big addition to 1.3.0.RC1 is support for preloading your application cache Regions with data, formatted as JSON.

It is well known that Spring Boot offers database initialization for SQL based data stores on startup.

Now, SBDG users have the same convenience with a NoSQL data store like Apache Geode. This support is very similar to Spring Boot’s database initialization approach using SQL.

What’s Next

All efforts are focused on getting SBDG 1.3.0.RELEASE out the door! 1.3.0.RELEASE will be based on Spring Boot 2.3.0.RELEASE, which is already available! The release is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, May 28th.


As always, any feedback is welcomed and appreciated.
