As usual, we've got a lot to cover so let's get to it.

  • Spring Cloud ninja Marcin Grzejszczak just announced Spring Cloud Camden SR1. The Spring Cloud release train is such a thing of beauty - just seeing it makes me want to build something cool! It includes Spring Cloud AWS, Bus, Commons, Contract, Config, Netflix, Security, Sleuth, Stream, Task, and Zookeeper.
  • Spring Cloud Data Flow co-founder Dr. Mark Pollack just announced Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.1.M2.
  • Want help automating the pipeline that sees your application move from a git push to a successfully deployed application in production? Check out the new project, Spring Cloud Pipelines, which is a set of shell scripts that can be plugged in portably across Pivotal Concourse or Jenkins…

Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.1 M2 Released

Engineering | Mark Pollack | October 18, 2016 | ...

On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce the release of the second milestone of Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.1. You can download the local server that is part of this release here.

The 1.1 M2 release includes the following new features and improvements:

  • Builds upon Boot 1.4.1 and Spring Cloud Camden improvements

  • Task application properties can now be referenced using non-prefixed property names

  • Add visual representation for related streams. This representation also includes nested TAPs and the downstream processing nodes in an overall topology view.

Visualization of Taps

  • The UI adds bulk import support for Task definitions. This allows importing task definitions from a file or the ability to add multiple task-definitions using the Flo-editor

  • The flo-editor embeds CodeMirror for incremental DSL syntax validation and error reporting. There’s also a toggle on/off button to enable and disable incremental validations.

  • Adds a form-based login page for non-OAUTH backend authentication methods such as the LDAP, Basic and File-based options.

  • Adds the ability to pass application specific properties via YAML file. This is particularly useful when deploying streams with that set many deployment properties.
