The release forms a significant milestone towards the GA releases expected around SpringOne this year. We added support for the MongoDB Aggregation Framework and improved the execution of polymorphic queries. On the JPA side of things we introduced support to use SpEL expressions in manually defined queries, improved the handling of entities using @IdClass and now allow to define the Date binding for repository query parameters using @TemporalType. The Neo4j module added support for countBy(…) queries and type safe query execution for repositories. You can find a more detailed list of features at the wiki page summarizing the Babbage content.

Spring for Apache Hadoop 1.0.1.RC1 released - adding Hadoop 2.0 and Pivotal HD 1.0 support

We are happy to announce a new release candidate 1.0.1.RC1 for the Spring for Apache Hadoop project. This release candidate introduces support for Apache Hadoop 1.1.2, Hortonworks HDP 1.2, Apache Hadoop 2.0.3-alpha as well as support for Pivotal HD 1.0. The support for these versions are in addition to the already supported versions of Apache Hadoop 1.0.4 and Cloudera CDH 3 and CDH 4. This brings us to support for no less than 7 different Hadoop versions.

To make it easier to configure project builds using these varying versions we will be introducing specific flavors of the Maven artifacts and POMs with their respective transitive dependencies. For this 1.0.1.RC1 release we are introducing three additional artifact versions – 1.0.1.RC1-cdh4 (Cloudera CDH 4), 1.0.1.RC1-pdh1 (Pivotal HD 1.0) and 1.0.1.RC1-hadoop11 (Apache Hadoop 1.1.2 and Hortonworks HDP 1.2). By using these versions as your dependency you will be pulling in their respective transitive dependencies instead of the dependencies from the Apache Hadoop 1.0.4 release that you would get when using the plain 1.0.1.RC1 version.
