Spring Batch 4.0.0.RELEASE is now available

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 XML-based configuration. Spring Boot had not been announced yet. Also, while JDK 8 had just come out, Spring Framework 4 (which Spring Batch 3 was based on) still supported java back to JDK 6. Spring Batch 4 brings upgrades to all of these areas. Let’s take a look.

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

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:
