Dear Spring Community,

I am happy to announce the release of Spring Data JPA 1.1.0 RC1 as well as 1.0.3 GA. The release candidate includes a ton of new features and a variety of bug fixes. Here's a brief list of the most important ones:

  • Support for locking
  • Support for @IdClass in entities
  • Support for LessThanEqual and GreaterThanEquals, True/False keywords in query methods
  • Added CDI integration for repositories
  • Improved parameter binding for derived queries for null values

The CDI integration was contributed by Dirk Mahler of Buschmais to a large degree. For a full list of changes see the changelog. Quite a few of the bugs fixed were back ported so we definitely recommend to upgrade to 1.0.3 as well as playing with the release candidate to help improving the final release. The 1.0.3 GA release can be obtained from Maven central while the release candidate is available via our milestone repository at http://repo.springsource.org/libs-milestone

Spring Data Neo4j 2.0.0 Released

Releases | Michael Hunger | December 23, 2011 | ...

Dear Spring Developers and Graphistas,

We're happy to present you with the release of Spring Data Neo4j 2.0 as a small Christmas gift from our side. Spring Data Neo4j is based on Neo4j 1.6.M02.

The major feature of this release is the addition of a simple mapping mode (spring-data-neo4j). Just annotate your POJOs and use a GraphRepository for the usual CRUD and advanced query operations.

For graph-attached POJOs and high performance use-cases, you can employ the advanced mapping mode (spring-data-neo4j-aspects), which leverages AspectJ to enhance your domain class.

Both mapping modes use the same underlying code, which is now based on the Spring Data Commons mapping infrastructure.

We improved the Cypher graph query language support by supporting new Cypher features, adding queries derived from finder-methods to the repositories and extended the result handling conversions to include projections to mapping-interfaces, Pages and more.

Besides also adding preliminary geospatial support provided by the Neo4j-spatial project, we also support new, type-safe Cypher-DSL which can also be used in conjunction with Query-DSL.

The example project are now included with the main source tree so that they are always up-to-date. The cineasts tutorial app is also included in the examples in 3 versions (simple mapping, advanced mapping, REST).

Thanks to the recent public availability of the Neo4j Add-On on Heroku, we included a chapter on how to deploy a Spring Data Neo4j application into the Heroku cloud. You’ll also find an accompanying example application called “todos” that is ready for deployment.

Special Thanks to James and Werner from Junisphere for all the code contributions and fixes.

In the last few weeks we got a lot more feedback on the Spring Forums, on JIRA and on the Neo4j Mailing list. We used your help to remove bugs, improve behaviour and documentation. Thanks a lot to everyone who reported issues and contributed insights.

To learn more about Spring Data Neo4j make sure to watch the introductory webinar by the project lead Michael Hunger and have a look at the extensive guide book. The detailed presentation from the Spring One conference is available on InfoQ.

And then please get your hands dirty and include Spring Data Neo4j in your holiday project which you could use to look at your domain with a fresh perspective.

Happy Holidays!
The Spring-Data and Neo4j Team

Releases | Oliver Drotbohm | December 22, 2011 | ...

Dear Spring Community,

  • Spring namespace to configure MongoDB instances, replica sets and JMX monitoring
  • MongoConverter for domain class mapping and persistence
  • Spring Data repositories support
  • MongoDB Log4j appender
  • Cross-store persistance - support for JPA Entities with fields transparently persisted/retrieved using MongoDB
  • Java based Query, Criteria, and Update DSLs
  • QueryDSL integration

Part of that release is the release of Spring Data Commons 1.2 GA which contains most of the core functionality of the high-level functionality such as entity mapping and repository abstraction. Note that we will remove the Spring Data Document repository from GitHub as we moved it to the Spring Data…
