Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire 1.1.0.M1 Released!

I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire/PCC (SBDG) 1.1.0.M1.

Bits (org.springframework.geode:spring-geode-starter:1.1.0.M1) are available in the Spring libs-milestone repository.

What’s New

The SBDG 1.1 Milestone 1 (M1) release includes:

  • Rebases SBDG on Spring Framework 5.1, Spring Boot 2.1, Spring Data Lovelace and Spring Session 2.1.

  • Rebases SBDG on Apache Geode 1.6.0 and Pivotal GemFire 9.5.3.

For a complete list of changes, see the changelog.

What’s Next

SBDG 1.1 M2 will include dedicated support for In-line Caching, the second caching pattern in our 3 separate caching patters [Look-Aside, Inline, Near].

As a friendly reminder, Spring’s Cache Abstraction already provides excellent support for the Look-Aside Caching pattern, and SBDG (by extension of SDG) provides first-class support for using either Apache Geode or Pivotal GemFire/PCC as a caching provider in Spring’s Cache Abstraction.

This was also covered nicely in the new Sample on Look-Aside Caching, containing both a Guide and Example Code.

Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire 1.0.0.RC2 Released!

I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire (SBDG) 1.0.0.RC2.

I would like to send a special shoutout to the Spring Boot team for providing invaluable feedback on this project. Indeed, without Spring Boot and the fine efforts of the Boot team, SBDG would not be possible. So, thank you Boot team!

After incorporating the feedback, I decided to postpone the final GA and introduce 1 more release candidate. Final 1.0 GA is (tentatively) scheduled for Monday, May 6th.

This Week in Spring - April 30th, 2019

Hi Spring fans and welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in colorful Chicago, Illinois, and magnificent Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am so excited to be in both places. I’m in Chicago for the GOTO Chicago event, which is always fun, and I’m in Milwaukee for a meetup and, of course, to partake of local delicacies like Kopps, a Cousins sub, and a Spotted Cow beer. Life is great!

Did you see this epic image of the Chicago Lakeshore area I took the other day? Spring is truly in full swing! (I’ll ignore the buckets of rain that have been dumped on Chicago and Milwaukee just a day after that photo was taken…)
