Goodbye http://repo.spring (use https)

In response to our nohttp announcement, Maven Central’s announcement, and JFrog’s announcement, beginning January 15 2020, Spring’s Maven Repository will no longer support HTTP. More concretely, http://repo.spring.io will not respond to requests. Users will need to ensure that they are using https://repo.spring.io

We are not going to redirect from http to https because it perpetuates the vulnerability. When the first request is made over http, a man in the middle (MITM) can prevent the redirect and replace the response with a malicious payload. Users that continue to use http will continue to be vulnerable to MITM attacks.

This Week in Spring - September 10, 2019

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another sunny installment of This Week in Spring! Can you believe we’re now staring down Q4 2019? How time flies!

As i write this I’m sat in a Radisson Blu hotel in Oslo, Norway, for the epic JavaZone show. I’ve got tons of wonderful memories at this hotel, often enjoyed with my friends on the Spring team, over many, many years. I love this show and am so glad to be back for the first time since 2015!

I landed today, recorded a few episodes of Spring Tips (new season starting soon!), took an ill-timed nap, and now here we are! We’ve got a ton to cover so let’s get to it!

Spring Cloud Data Flow 2.3.0.M1 and 2.2.1 GA Released

The Spring Cloud Data Flow team is pleased to announce the milestone release 2.3.0.M1 and the release of 2.2.1 GA.

Along with the bug fixes and enhancements, the first milestone of 2.3.0 also has the following new features:

  • Improved Prometheus monitoring based on Prometheus RSocket. It uses persistent bidirectional (RSocket) connections between the Stream/Task applications and a Prometheus RSocket Proxy instance. When Prometheus scrapes the proxy instance, and the proxy, in turn, uses the connections to pull metrics from the applications.
  • Ability to pass OAuth Access Token as command-line arguments for Composed Tasks
  • Users can now specify a description of the stream when creating it. Thanks to Daniel Serleg for the contribution!
  • Spring Cloud Scheduler SPI is now merged into Spring Cloud Deployer. We’ll deprecate the explicit spring-cloud-scheduler project and its implementations on Cloud Foundry, K8s and have them available as part of spring-cloud-deployer.

Spring HATEOAS 1.0.0.RC2 released

Dear Spring community, we’re proud to announce the second release candidate of Spring HATEOAS 1.0.0. Since our last release, Spring HATEOAS has made great strides with two more milestones and two RCs.

Here’s the summary:

  • Internationalization support for both HAL and HAL-FORMS.

  • Performance improvements

  • Spring HATEOS is now based on Spring Framework 5.2 and Reactor’s Dysprosium release train. This is critical to support downstream projects like Spring Data Moore and Spring Boot 2.2.

  • Now supports Spring WebFlux applications that have both hypermedia and non-hypermedia endpoints.

  • Improved major chunks of reference documentation.

  • Created a Spring HATEOAS Gitter channel.

  • Fixed issues in various media types to ensure they comply with spec definitions, and don’t throw unexpected exceptions.
