Spring Boot 2.2.1 available now

On behalf of the team and everyone who has contributed, I’m happy to announce that Spring Boot 2.2.1 has been released and is now available from repo.spring.io and Maven Central.

This release includes 110 fixes, improvements, and dependency upgrades. Thanks to all those who have contributed with issue reports and pull requests.

For those of you upgrading from Spring Boot 2.2.0 to Spring Boot 2.2.1, if you relied on the @ConfigurationProperties scanning support, please note that this feature is now disabled by default. Scanning of @ConfigurationProperties needs to be explicitly opted into by adding the @ConfigurationPropertiesScan annotation. More details related to this change can be found here.

Spring Integration Extensions Releases

Dear Spring Community,

Following several requests from community members, it is my pleasure to announce that some Spring Integration Extensions have made it to their new generations and up-to-date dependencies. Of course, first of all, thank you everybody contributed, even if that was just a GitHub issue or StackOverflow question!

Below are highlights for those projects. All of them are available on Maven Central, JCenter and Spring Release repositories. Since all these projects are not a part of Spring Integration BOM (and they cannot be because of different release cycles) you have to specify their versions in your dependency management explicitly.

This Week in Spring - November 5, 2019

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in Antwerp, Belgium for the epic Devoxx event. I was in Singapore for Devoxx Belgium 2018, and so I missed this event. I am so happy to be here this year.

I finished a “deep dive” session this morning with an amazing crowd of people who hung out with me for 3 hours to talk about Reactive Spring. I’ve got two more one-hour talks on Thursday, “Bootiful Testing,” and “Bootiful Kotlin.” I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone for those talks as well.

Azure Spring Cloud Is Now In Public Preview

Hi, Spring fans! Today we’re excited to announce that Azure Spring Cloud, the runtime for Spring Boot-based applications and Spring Cloud-based microservices jointly developed by Microsoft and Pivotal, is now in public beta. Anybody can try it out now!

As customers have moved their workloads to the cloud, we’ve seen a growth in the use of cloud-native architectures, particularly microservices. Microservice-based architectures help improve scalability and velocity, but implementing them can pose challenges. For many Java developers, Spring Boot and Spring Cloud have helped address these challenges, providing a robust platform with well-established patterns for developing and operating microservice applications.

Spring Cloud Stream - Composed Functions or EIP

In preparation for the upcoming releases of Spring Cloud Stream (SCSt) 3.0.0 - Horsham and Spring Cloud Function (SCF) 3.0.0, we’ve been publishing a series of posts discussing and showcasing new features and enhancements.
We provided motivation and justification for moving away from the annotation-based programming model to the functional model, and then we provided more details on the functional approach, as well as reactive functions.
In another post, which is relevant to what we’re going to be discussing here, Artem demonstrated the benefits of combining functional approaches with the Spring Integration project. We also talked about event routing in our last post.
