Getting Started with Spring Cloud Gateway

Microservice architectures are great, but as your application programming interfaces (APIs) start to grow, so do the challenges related to their maintenance.

For example, as an existing API matures and adds new features it will need to take its clients along with it on the journey. When the details of an API change, clients need to adjust in order to work with these changes. This process takes time and can really slow your APIs evolution and interfere with your ability to iterate quickly.

Offering multiple APIs brings with it its own set of challenges. How do you route requests and responses to the correct API? How do you manage any message disparity? How do you support clients when your endpoints can move around?


Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire 1.0.1.RELEASE & 1.1.0.M2 Available

On behalf of the Spring and Apache Geode communities, it is my pleasure to announce the release of Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire (SBDG) 1.0.1.RELEASE and 1.1.0.M2.

New in SBDG 1.0.1.RELEASE

SBDG 1.0.1.RELEASE builds on:

  • Spring Framework 5.0.14.RELEASE

  • Spring Boot 2.0.9.RELEASE

  • Spring Data Kay-SR14

  • Spring Session for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire 2.0.9.RELEASE

Additionally, SBDG now supports the ability configure and bootstrap a Locator process, which disables the auto-configuration supplying a ClientCache instance, by default.

See the complete changelog for further details.


Spring Session for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire 2.1.4.RELEASE & 2.2.0.M2 Available

On behalf of the Spring and Apache Geode communities, it is my pleasure to announce the release of Spring Session for Apache Geode and Pivotal GemFire (SSDG) 2.1.4.RELEASE and 2.2.0.M2 releases.

Both SSDG 2.1.4.RELEASE and 2.2.0.M2 now support the ability to turn off client subscriptions. No longer does SSDG require client subscriptions to be enabled to use either Apache Geode or Pivotal GemFire to manage your HTTP Session state. However, if client subscriptions are not explicitly enabled, then the client will no longer receive notifications of Session events that may have originated from other clients accessing the same (HTTP) Session. This is entirely possible in a load balanced, non-sticky Session, environment.


Spring Security 5.2.0.M3 Released

On behalf of the community, I’m pleased to announce the release of Spring Security 5.2.0.M3! You can find the complete details in the changelog and the highlights below:

OAuth 2.0

gh-6727 - Support for Multi-tenancy in Reactive Resource Server

Java CFEnv 1.1.0.RC1 Released


On behalf of the community I am happy to announce the release of Java CFEnv 1.1 RC1.

The RC1 release adds the following functionality:

  • Checks the classpath to correctly determine setting of MySQL or MariaDB driver class name.

  • When using the Boot support, an exception is thrown if the Spring Cloud Connector library is on the classpath. This applies only for the following services: DataSource, RabbitMQ, Cassandra, MongoDB, and Redis. The exception message indicates to set the environment variable JBP_CONFIG_SPRING_AUTO_RECONFIGURATION '{enabled: false}'

  • Support for Boot 1.5.x by copying a logging utility class into the project.

The project README has more information.

The GA release is planned for next week. Please try it out and give feedback on our github issues page.
