Spring Data Couchbase 1.0 M1 and Spring Data Solr 1.0 GA released

Hot on the heals of the Spring Data Babbage GA release I am happy to announce the availability of two community driven Spring Data modules, namely the first milestone of Spring Data Couchbase lead by Michael Nitschinger and the 1.0 GA of Spring Data Solr lead by Christoph Strobl.

The first milestone release of the Couchbase module contains lots of features that allow you to build content driven and scalable applications on top of Couchbase and spring-data very quickly. This release features support for templates, repositories, Java and XML-style configuration. Entities are automatically converted into JSON documents, which can be queried from Couchbase and exported through scalable map/reduce views. In addition to that, the release contains support for @Cacheable annotations, which allow you to cache any kind of binary data (for example serialized java objects) inside Couchbase in a transparent manner.
