Spring Cloud Stream 1.0.2.RELEASE is available

Releases | Marius Bogoevici | June 08, 2016 | ...

Shortly after the 1.0.1.RELEASE announcement last week we’ve identified a critical and very specific issue concerning multi-binder configurations in cloud environments.

The artifacts can be found in Spring Repository as well as Maven Central.

I will be talking about Spring Cloud Stream at Spring One Platform, which will be taking place in Las Vegas between August 1-4 this year. There are many other great talks so check the agenda and get your ticket if you haven’t done so…

Introducing Spring Cloud Cloud Foundry Service Broker

Releases | Scott Frederick | June 07, 2016 | ...

I am pleased to announce the newest addition to the Spring Cloud family. Spring Cloud Cloud Foundry Service Broker is a framework for building service brokers for the Cloud Foundry platform.

Spring REST Docs 1.1.0.RELEASE

Releases | Andy Wilkinson | May 31, 2016 | ...

It's my pleasure to announce the release of Spring REST Docs 1.1.0.RELEASE which is now available for Maven Central, JCenter and our release repository.


REST Assured

As an alternative to the lightweight server-less documentation generation offered by Spring Framework's MockMvc, you can now use REST Assured to test and document your RESTful services. This opens up Spring REST Docs to all four corners of the JVM and beyond, allowing you to document anything that you can access via HTTP.

The samples now include an app that is documented using REST Docs, built using Grails, and tested using Spock. A third-party sample that uses REST Docs to document an API implemented using Ratpack is also available. My thanks to Jenn Strater
