On behalf of the community, I am happy to announce the release of Spring Cloud Stream Brooklyn.SR2 and Chelsea.M1 release trains. As part of the next installment to Brooklyn release train, Brooklyn.SR2 adds a number of new features and fixes.

Spring AMQP 1.7.0.RELEASE (and 1.6.7) Available

On behalf of the Spring Integration team I’d like to announce that Spring AMQP 1.7.0.RELEASE is now available.

This release is mainly an intermediate version between 1.6.x and 2.0 for Spring Boot 1.5 and IO Platform Brussels dependencies compatibility.

However, there are several improvements and new features to explain here:

  • Upgrade to Amqp Client 4.0 with appropriate RabbitConnectionFactoryBean changes

  • Upgrade to Log4j 2.7 and required breaking change fix for the log4j2.AmqpAppender

  • Upgrade to Spring Retry 1.2 with important StatefulRetryOperationsInterceptor.setUseRawKey(true) for backward compatibility

  • a new spring-rabbit-junit artifact is provided with several utilities (like BrokerRunning @Rule) which can be useful for testing Spring AMQP applications

  • The SimpleMessageListenerContainer can now be started without queues to listen to at all. They can be provided later at runtime via addQueues()

  • a ConnectionNameStrategy is provided for the ConnectionFactory to allow to identify application connections in the Broker or other monitoring and tracing tools

Spring Cloud Data Flow for Cloud Foundry 1.1 GA released

We are pleased to announce the general availability of Spring Cloud Data Flow for Cloud Foundry version 1.1.0.RELEASE.

In addition to all the bells and whistles of Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.1.2 that this release builds upon, the Cloud Foundry specifics include:

  • Memory Optimizations: After much troubleshooting, we are pleased to deliver a memory efficient SCDF server in this release. With the changes now, regardless of how many stream/task deployments and concurrency, we have observed the memory usage of the server stay within the 200MB range as opposed to 1G or over to an eventual crash in previous 1.0.0.RELEASE. If you experienced spurious crashes previously, we highly recommend upgrading to 1.1.0.RELEASE right away.

  • Maven Cache and Disk Optimizations: We have improved the way Maven caching is applied and used. There is a new LRU (Least Recently Used) design on top of the maven cache to allow us to be more proactive about the cache size as opposed to letting it grow indefinitely, which if not governed, leads to out of disk space errors for the application container where the server is running.

  • Tasks Support: In the latest PCF 1.9 release, the Task component graduated from being experimental to production-ready feature capability. Spring Cloud Data Flow’s Task support for Cloud Foundry closely followed this development and with this release, we have removed the “experimental” clause from our side, too. Spring Cloud Data Flow’s Task support is production-ready when used on PCF 1.9. One can still try this functionality on older PCF releases, PCF 1.8 for example, but the feature capabilities neither guaranteed nor supported on older PCF releases since is it classified as ”experimental”.

    The Task database schema changed slightly with this release. For folks upgrading from 1.0.0.RELEASE to 1.1.0.RELEASE, please review the migration steps included in the reference guide.

  • Improved Error Handling: Building on the latest version of the Spring Cloud Deployer for Cloud Foundry project, interaction with the Cloud Controller REST API has been made more resilient, being more pro-active in dealing with the occasional server-side error.
