Spring Cloud Spinnaker 1.0.0.M1

Engineering | Greg L. Turnquist | August 19, 2016 | ...

Greetings Spring community,

I am happy to release the first milestone for Spring Cloud Spinnaker. Spring Cloud Spinnaker bundles up the continuous delivery Spinnaker platform, and provides a 1-click installer to let you install it to any certified Cloud Foundry provider.

At this year’s SpringOne Platform 2016 conference, there were two talks about Spinnaker. If you have early release access and missed them, you can watch right now. Otherwise you can catch them on the SpringDeveloper YouTube Channel once they are published.

Managing your Database Secrets with Vault

Engineering | Mark Paluch | August 15, 2016 | ...

In my previous post about Managing Secrets with Vault, I introduced you to Vault and how to store arbitrary secrets using the generic secret backend. Vault can manage more than just secret data like API keys, passwords, and other sensitive string-like data. Today we’re taking a look at Vault’s integration with databases, services, and certificates.

Database credentials tend to be static

When it comes to databases, the regular workflow of getting credentials applying for a database is asking some operator or a self-service tool to give you credentials so your application can log into the…

SpringOne Platform 2016 Recap: Day 1

Engineering | Josh Long | August 02, 2016 | ...

by Josh Long and Pieter Humphrey

Spring's central to a key message: software is business differentiating functionality, and everything that defers an organization's from delivering better software, faster and safer, should be automated or eliminated. SpringOne Platform captures that narrative with talks on all things continuous delivery.

Reactive Programming with Spring 5.0 M1

Engineering | Rossen Stoyanchev | July 28, 2016 | ...

As Juergen mentioned in his Spring Framework 5 M1 release announcement our Spring Reactive initiative has been merged into Spring Framework proper preserving all contributions and its full history over more than a year.

What is it?

In a nutshell reactive programming is about non-blocking, event-driven applications that scale with a small number of threads with backpressure as a key ingredient that aims to ensure producers do not overwhelm consumers. The Reactive Streams specification (also adopted in Java 9) enables the ability to communicate demand across layers and libraries from different…

Engineering | Josh Long | July 26, 2016 | ...

Welcome to another installation of This Week in Spring! This week I'm mostly in San Francisco and Saint Louis, busily preparing for the big event next week!

This is my favorite time of year! As we lead to SpringOne Platform, there's so much good stuff being released that one can hardly keep up!

It's an amazing time to build applications, and SpringOne Platform is in a unique position to capture the larger discussion: why do we #devops, #cloud, #agile, or #microservice?
