Spring Cloud Stream Elmhurst.M3 /2.0.0.M3 Release Announcement

We are pleased to announce the 2.0.0.M3 release of the Spring Cloud Stream Elmhurst release train.

Spring Cloud Stream Elmhurst 2.0.0.M3 is available for use in the Spring Milestone repository. The release notes include relevant information about version compatibility with Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, Spring AMQP, and Spring for Apache Kafka.

The following sections list new features and improvements included in this release:

Improved Content Type Resolution

The content-type resolution has been improved and consolidated in the channel interceptors, which makes it configurable for situations that require application-level customizations. Also, based on the community feedback, we now set the default content-type as application/json. However, it is still possible to override it via BindingProperties or it can be passed with the Message coming from an upstream application.

Spring Web Services 3.0.0.RELEASE / 2.4.2.RELEASE is out!

Greetings Spring community,

Spring Web Services has released 3.0.0 for general availability as well as released a minor patch, 2.4.2.RELEASE.

As stated in the previous blog post, the 2.x series will be maintained as long as Spring Framework 4.x is supported, yet any new work will be conducted on the master branch.

The links below include related tickets.

  • 3.0.0.RELEASE:

    • Better handling of large attachments to avoid OutOfMemory exceptions.

    • Wss4jSecurityInterceptor enhancements including SAML callbacks

    • SpringSecurityPasswordValidationCallbackHandler improvement to avoid NPE from lack of a logged-in user

    • Fixes to SOAP 1.1/SOAP 1.2 message header handling

    • Fix content-type for Axiom SOAP 1.2

    • Upgrade to latest versions of AspectJ

    • Support for up-and-coming Axiom 1.3 (community contributor who wants to ensure Spring WS and Axiom 1.3 work together).

  • 2.4.2.RELEASE:

    • Backporting of the same SpringSecurityPasswordValidationCallbackHandler fix

    • Accidentally moved wss4j 2.x version too far forward to ensure stable compatibility. If you wish to use the very latest wss4j, you must move to the 3.0 version.

$ diff -q spring-data-gemfire spring-data-geode

Greetings Spring Community and Pivotal GemFire/Apache Geode Users-

One question I constantly get asked is, "What is the difference between Spring Data GemFire and Spring Data Geode?"

Now that Spring Data Geode is part of the Spring Data Release Train, beginning with Kay (see the official release announcement for more details), the timing is finally right to answer this question in an open forum.

To help answer this question, I set 2 simple objectives for both Spring Data GemFire and Spring Data Geode (collectively known as SDG^2 now):
