Spring Statemachine 1.0.0.M2 Released

Releases | Janne Valkealahti | June 02, 2015 | ...

We’re pleased to announce a second milestone release of Spring Statemachine 1.0.0.M2.

With this milestone we focused on features in regions and pseudostates. Regions provide more sophisticated functionality for a parallel execution of a states machines and pseudostates will bring more functionality for working with initial, terminate, history, choice, fork and join states.

Spring Cloud Consul 1.0.0.M1 Available Now

Releases | Spencer Gibb | May 27, 2015 | ...

Consul is a system for discovering and configuring services in your infrastructure. It was built by Hashicorp, the same smart folks that created Vagrant and Packer. Consul provides services such as Service Discovery, Health Checking, Key/Value Store all while supporting multiple datacenters out of the box.

Spring Cloud Consul aims to bring all of those features to the Spring Cloud ecosystem. The project has reached its first milestone and fresh jars are available in the repository. Spring Cloud Consul provides the following features:

  • Spring Cloud Consul Discovery: An implementation of the Spring Cloud Commons DiscoveryClient. Service registration and discovery are performed via the Consul HTTP API.

  • Spring Cloud Consul Config: Distributed configuration via the Consul Key/Value API. This behaves similarly to the Spring Cloud Config Client, but is backed by the distributed Consul KV Store.

  • Spring Cloud Consul Bus: An event bus for linking services and service instances together with distributed messaging. Useful for propagating state changes across a cluster (e.g. config change events). This is implemented using the Consul Event API.

Spring Cloud Connectors 1.2.0 RC1 released

Releases | Scott Frederick | May 22, 2015 | ...

I’m pleased to announce the availability of Spring Cloud Connectors 1.2.0 RC1.

This release should be fully backward compatible with 1.1.0.RELEASE for applications using the library. Libraries that extend the core Connectors library should be recompiled against 1.2.0 RC1, and may encounter a few small extension API changes. Barring any issues, this will be the only RC before 1.2.0.RELEASE.

Here's an overview of what's new in 1.2.0:

Spring Cloud Connectors Core


  • AmqpServiceInfo no longer validates that the path element of a URI contains a value, which allows the default RabbitMQ vhost to be used.
  • URL validation in AmqpServiceInfo was relaxed such that QPID URL format is supported as well as RabbitMQ URL format.
  • AmqpServiceInfo now supports holding a list of URIs for providers that support multiple host connections.
