The Road to Reactive Spring Cloud

The new Spring Cloud Finchley GA release is jam-packed with good stuff and represents a major milestone in the journey to reactive microservices. I couldn’t possibly list everything so I refer you to the fresh-from-the-oven release announcement by Spencer Gibb. Instead, in this post, I want to focus on the road we have taken to reactive Spring Cloud.

We released Spring Framework 5 in September 2017. This was the first release to introduce new Reactive programming support to help build more robust, scalable services. It builds upon the Pivotal Reactor project, our reactive streams compatible reactive runtime. Spring Framework 5 also includes a ton of new features, and I won’t try to list them all, either, choosing instead to focus on reactive support here. What is reactive programming? Why does it matter? Well, it matters when you’re building networked services.

Reactor Bismuth-SR10

The latest maintenance BOM of the 3.1.x line, Bismuth-SR10, is out. It includes two new artifacts (click on the version numbers to see the release notes on GitHub):

One update considerations though: Flux.last() used to skip throwing a NoSuchElementException on some category of empty sources (Flux or Mono that are Callable, like Flux.empty()). This is a bug and it correctly does throw now.
