Releases | Artem Bilan | April 26, 2016 | ...

I am pleased to announce that Spring Integration 4.3.0.M2 is now available from the Spring milestone repository. This release closes about 50 JIRAs and includes almost a 100 commits.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed. Especially to the Spring Cloud Stream team, whose comprehensive Spring Integration usage influences the project direction.

Some key feature since the First Milestone:

  • The Spring Integration runtime object model, together with Component Metrics, now can be exposed as a graph, which may be used to visualize the current state of the integration application. When running in a web container, the @EnableIntegrationGraphController annotation, together with an IntegrationGraphServer bean, creates a service to retrieve the model and state over the REST protocol, e.g. in JSON notation:

Spring for Apache Kafka 1.0 Milestone 2 Available

Releases | Artem Bilan | April 11, 2016 | ...

I am pleased to announce that the spring-kafka (Spring for Apache Kafka) Second Milestone for version 1.0 is now available.

Changes since the First Milestone include:

  • KafkaTemplate.send() methods now return ListenableFuture<SendResult<K, V>>

to track publishing to the Kafka topic asynchronously.

  • The MessagingMessageListenerAdapter (for @KafkaListener method) can now infer the type for payload conversion from the method arguments.
  • A StringJsonMessageConverter, which can use the type inference to build the target object from JSON content using the Jackson ObjectMapper.
  • RECEIVED_ headers have been added from the Listener to avoid clashing (re-routing) to the same topic with the same messageKey when sending, e.g. with the Spring Integration Adapters.
  • More testing utilities.

Spring Cloud Stream 1.0.0.RC2 is now available

Releases | Marius Bogoevici | April 07, 2016 | ...

On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Stream 1.0.0.RC2, available here. As part of the release candidate cycle, it comes with a number of bug fixes and a small number adjustments. The complete list of changes is available here.

Some highlights:

  • Spring Cloud Stream applications now use the ObjectMapper provided by Spring Boot, if available;
  • Header embedding is now a general purpose producer/consumer property. It can be enabled or disabled by middlewares that require embedding for header propagation. This allows easier interoperability outside Spring Cloud Stream; (until now it was a Kafka-specific property);
  • Further documentation and sample improvements.
