Here’s the Day 1 recording - Booternetes II: The YAML Strikes Back - featuring yours truly, Mark Heckler, Mario Gray, David Turanski, Tiffany Jernigan, Chris Sterling, and special guest star, Kubernetes cofounder, Joe Beda.

This edition pulls together a lot of different Spring ecosystem technologies, showing projects that you might use to more fully exploit the power of Kubernetes. Enjoy!

Automate Spring Boot application deployments to Azure!

Today, we’re excited to announce the availability of the Azure Pipeline Task for deploying Spring Boot applications to Azure Spring Cloud. You can get started by building your pipelines using the Azure Spring Cloud task to automate Spring Boot application deployments to any number of environments and Azure Regions.

Over the past 18 months, we worked with many enterprise customers to learn about their scenarios including thoughts on automating end-to-end from idea to provisioning Azure resources to building Spring Boot applications to deploying those applications to production. Many of these customers have thousands of Spring Boot applications running in on-premises data centers. As they migrate these applications to the cloud, they need everything automated end-to-end to ensure repeatability and meet the requirements set forth by their IT departments and/or regulatory bodies. They require a fully-featured Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) service that can automatically deploy updated Spring Boot applications to Azure Spring Cloud. In many customer environments, they use Azure CLI in Azure Pipelines to automate Spring Boot application deployments to Azure, and they asked Microsoft for an Azure Spring Cloud task to ease their automation effort and delegate the maintenance of the deployment task to Microsoft. Now, using the new Azure Spring Cloud task, anyone can automate deployments straight to production or automate blue-green strategies to stage for testing and then set to production.

This Week in Spring - May 4th, 2021

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How’re you doing? I hope you’re doing well, and that the Fourth (of May) is with you.

Today may be the 4th, but yesterday was the third of May, and that marks the 20th anniversary of the JdbcTemplate, which I think is super cool! Happy birthday, JdbcTemplate! The JdbcTemplate was important to a lot of people because it’s one of those great little utilities that made it easy to justify pulling Spring into applications almost two decades ago. It also helped people learn a lot about some of the design patterns that Spring was trying to make commonplace.

Spring Cloud Gateway for Kubernetes

The Spring Cloud Gateway (SCG) open-source project has been extended and offered commercially for the Kubernetes platform. This new offering lets you automate the deployment of an API gateway service by applying YAML configuration objects to a Kubernetes cluster. You can also update the routes of API gateways in Kubernetes by applying YAML configuration to the cluster.

Spring Cloud Gateway for Kubernetes supports routing to services that are written in any language, as long as they expose HTTP endpoints. A Kubernetes operator is offered to handle creating and configuring a gateway instance by applying defined custom resources to the cluster. You can dynamically configure a spawned SCG instance in a Kubernetes platform to enable API route updates for a continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipeline. Furthermore, the SCG for Kubernetes offers commercial API route filters for Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication, role-based access control, scopes authorization, authorized token relay, client certificate authorization, rate limiting, and circuit breaker. SCG instances in a Kubernetes platform run with high availability and adjustable settings for memory and vCPU resources consumption.
