Spring HATEOAS 1.1.1.RELEASE is out!

Dear Spring community,

Spring HATEOAS 1.1.1.RELEASE is out, the first patched release of the latest stable line, supporting Spring Boot 2.3.

Among many things, you’ll find:

  • We are now listing community-led efforts to implement other media types. JSON:API and Siren are the latest. You want to add another media type? Just check out the details.

  • VndErrors is a media type for reporting, well, errors. And it has had a sneaky bug that crept in that we’ve now patched. "logref" values are no longer confined to integers. It’s important to also note that the VndErrors spec is showing no signs of life, hence we’ve deprecated its support. If you’re starting a new hypermedia-driven project, our recommendation is to use RFC-7807’s application/problem+json format instead. The API is more elegant and more importantly, under active development. And we’ve made some fixes based on community feedback.

  • We are continuing to fix memory usage issues as more people crank out hypermedia links in more intense environments.

  • Spring HATEOS has de-lomboked the source code. This effort has been applied to the latest 1.2 and this version of 1.1 as well. (Versions predating 1.1 aren’t getting backports except in very special situations.)

Creating a Supplier Function and generating Spring Cloud Stream Source

This is part 3 of the blog series in which we are introducing java functions for Spring Cloud Stream applications.

Other parts in the series.

In the last two blogs in this series, we provided a general introduction to this new initiative of migrating all the existing Spring Cloud Stream App Starters to functions and the various ways in which we can compose them. In this blog, we continue the series, showing how these functions are developed, tested, and used to generate Spring Cloud Stream applications. In particular, here we are focusing on how to write a supplier function (implementing java.util.function.Supplier) and then generate the corresponding source application for Spring Cloud Stream.
