Thus it's a recommended upgrade for all Gosling users and also users of previous release trains.

The release is be included in the just released Spring Boot 1.3.1 release which should make the upgrade a non-issue. If you're using the BOM, make sure you upgrade to Gosling-SR2A (note the trailing A). A tiny glitch during the…

Spring Framework 5.0 Roadmap Update

Releases | Juergen Hoeller | December 03, 2015 | ...

You might have heard the news already: JDK 9 is going to be delayed by half a year, now aiming for a March 2017 release instead of its original September 2016 target.

Since Spring 5 is designed to track JDK 9 very closely, we decided to revisit our own roadmap as well: We are nevertheless going to start our release candidate phase in Q4 2016 but we won't go GA before March 2017 either. That said, we really mean it: The goal is for Spring Framework 5.0 to go GA right after JDK 9's GA date then.

The opportunity for you to start working with Spring 5 features will begin much sooner anyway, with…

Spring Cloud Connectors 1.2.1 released

Releases | Scott Frederick | December 02, 2015 | ...

I’m pleased to announce the availability of Spring Cloud Connectors 1.2.1. This is a maintenance release with a few new features and a few bug fixes.

Here are the highlights:

Heroku Connector

Relational Databases

  • The Heroku cloud connector now recognizes the DATABASE_URL environment variable when detecting PostgreSQL database.


Spring Connector

Relational Databases

  • When creating a DataSource, Spring Cloud Connectors will look for a pooling DataSource implementation on the classpath and choose one based on a default priority. The priority of detection has been changed to more closely match the order used in Spring Boot.
  • Applications can customize the priority order of pooled DataSource implementations using either Java configuration or XML configuration.
  • DataSourceConfig will now accept a map of key/value pairs to allow setting arbitrary properties of the created DataSource. This allows overriding of the default JDBC driver class name and validation query set up by Connectors, in addition to other properties of the DataSource
