Spring Data Lovelace SR6, Kay SR14, Ingalls SR20 Released

On behalf of the entire team I’d like to announce the availability of three service releases for Spring Data release trains: Lovelace SR6, Kay SR14, and Ingalls SR20.

The releases are recommended upgrades as they contain fixes for a CVE in Spring Data JPA.

Spring Boot 2.1.4, 2.0.9, and 1.5.20 already pull in the above Spring Data versions, including the fixes that were released last week, and are now also available for use.

Here’s the content of the releases:

This Week in Spring - April 9th, 2019

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another wild-and-wacky week of This Week in Spring! I’m in Johannesburg, South Africa where I both spoke at the SpringOne Tour South Africa event and at the Johannesburg Java User Group. Had tons of fun on safari visiting (from the safety of a good deal of distance and an SUV) the utterly astonishing and beautiful - majestic - wildlife here. I can’t stress that last part enough. The animals here are so, so, SO breathtaking. I got as close as I ever want to get to an elephant that was like a small house with eyes. Utterly massive! It towered over buses. When you go into the bush, my tour guide warned, you enter the food chain, and there, we don’t figure very high at all. The experience reminded me how insignificant I am and how utterly privileged I am to be here, with you, dear community. We’re all pretty lucky.

Event-driven Java with Spring Cloud Stream and Azure Event Hubs [Guest Post]

Asir Selvasingh | Principal PM Architect | Microsoft – Java on Azure

Spring Cloud Stream Binder for Azure Event Hubs is now generally available.

It is simple to build highly scalable event-driven Java apps using Spring Cloud Stream with Event Hubs, a fully managed, real-time data ingestion service on Azure that is resilient and reliable service for any situation; this includes emergencies, thanks to its geo-disaster recovery and geo-replication features.

Spring Cloud Stream provides a binder abstraction for popular message broker implementations. It provides a flexible programming model built on already established and familiar Spring idioms and best practices, including support for persistent pub/sub semantics, consumer groups, and stateful partitions. Now, developers can use the same patterns for building Java apps with Event Hubs.

Reactor Debugging Experience

In the Project Reactor team, we believe that the debugging experience of the libraries you rely upon is as important as, let’s say, the feature set or performance.

Today, we’re excited to announce two new experimental projects in the Reactor family!

BlockHound - a new kid on the block

One of the most common rookie mistakes is to block Java threads that are supposed to run only non-blocking code (e.g., Schedulers.parallel()).
It is one of the most harmful issues because you may block unrelated processing or even create a deadlock!
