Spring Batch 4.2.0.M1 available now

I am pleased to announce that the first milestone of Spring Batch 4.2 has been released and is available from our milestone repository.

The major feature of this release is the addition of batch metrics with Micrometer.

Batch Metrics with Micrometer

This release introduces a new feature that lets you monitor your batch jobs by using Micrometer. By default, Spring Batch collects metrics (such as job duration, step duration, item read and write throughput, and others) and registers them in Micrometer’s global metrics registry under the spring.batch prefix. These metrics can be sent to any monitoring system supported by Micrometer.

Spring Tools 4.2.1 released

Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the 4.2.1 release of the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse, Visual Studio Code, and Atom.

Highlights from this release include:

  • (Spring Boot) performance: additional performance and memory footprint improvements to symbol indexing, now eats less memory and is faster while doing the initial indexing run
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for bean types in Spring XML config files
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for property names in Spring XML config files
  • (Spring Boot) new: content-assist for bean references in property definitions in Spring XML config files (very rough early cut, needs a lot more work on proposal content, number of proposals, and sorting)
  • (Eclipse) fixed: empty property values in custom properties not set when launching boot apps (#275)
  • (Eclipse) fixed: content-assist doesn’t activate (restart) old language servers anymore
