Spring Batch 4.0.0.RELEASE is now available

Releases | Michael Minella | December 04, 2017 | ...

We are pleased to announce that Spring Batch 4.0.0.RELEASE is now available through Github, the Pivotal download repository, and Maven Central. This is the generally available release of the 4.0 line. Many thanks to all that contributed to this release.

How We Got Here

Spring Batch 4 is the first major version release of Spring Batch since 3.0 went out in 2014. A lot has changed in the Spring ecosystem since that version went out. This release is intended to bring Spring Batch up to date with those changes. When Spring Batch 3 came out, Java configuration was just beginning to take over…

Spring for Apache Kafka 2.1.0.RELEASE (and 1.3.2, 2.0.2) Available

Releases | Gary Russell | December 01, 2017 | ...

I am pleased to announce the availability of Spring for Apache Kafka 2.1.0.RELEASE.

In addition, maintenance releases 1.3.2.RELEASE and 2.0.2.RELEASE are available, containing important bug fixes. See also below for information about spring-integration-kafka 3.0.0.RELEASE. It is recommended that all users upgrade.

The main purpose of the 2.1 release is to upgrade the kafka-clients library to 1.0.0, but we have included a few improvements:

  • Sometimes, when a message can’t be processed, you may wish to stop the container so the condition can be corrected and the message re-delivered. The framework now provides the ContainerStoppingErrorHandler for record listeners and ContainerStoppingBatchErrorHandler for batch listeners.

  • The KafkaAdmin now supports increasing partitions when a NewTopic bean is detected with a larger number of partitions than currently exist on the topic.

  • StringJsonMessageConverter and JsonSerializer/JsonDeserializer now pass and consume type information in Headers. This allows multiple types to be easily sent/received on the same topic:

    @SpringBootApplication public class Kafka21Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(Kafka21Application.class, args)
    public ApplicationRunner runner(KafkaTemplate<Object, Object> template) {
        return args -> {
                    .setHeader(KafkaHeaders.TOPIC, "blog")

Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.3.0.M3 released

Releases | Mark Pollack | November 29, 2017 | ...

We are pleased to announce the 1.3.0.M3 release of the Spring Cloud Data Flow and its associated ecosystem of projects.

Local Server: Getting Started Guide

Release Highlights

Stream updates and rollback

A streaming data pipeline orchestrated as a series of microservice applications has always been the core value of Spring Cloud Data Flow’s design. In 1.3.0.M3 we have provided the ability to update sources, processors, and sinks independently without having to undeploy and redeploy the entire stream.

The stream update feature is implemented by delegating the deployment process to a new Spring Cloud project called Skipper. Introduced in this blog, Spring Cloud Skipper is a standalone server that deploys Spring Boot applications to multiple cloud platforms. It also keeps track of the application version, application properties, and deployment properties of the deployed application or applications so that the changes to any of these…
