Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.3.0.M1 released

On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce the first milestone release of Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.3.0.

Local Server: Getting Started Guide.

Usability is one of the big focus for our team and in the 1.3 release-line, we are aiming to modernize the dashboard with an upgraded client-side technology stack, improved tooling, and documentation. The focus is to improve the readability, user-experience, and the overall performance.

Angular 4

This first milestone release of Spring Cloud Data Flow contains the initial version of the new Angular 4 based Dashboard UI. The old AngularJS 1.x based UI, particularly the tooling and secondary framework/library choices, started to show their age.

Spring Cloud Pipelines 1.0.0.M6 Released

On behalf of the Spring Cloud team it is my pleasure to announce a new milestone release of Spring Cloud Pipelines - 1.0.0.M6.

What’s new?

Pipeline descriptor

Each application can contain a file called pipeline.yml with the following structure:

lowercaseEnvironmentName1:
    services:
        - type: service1Type
          name: service1Name
          coordinates: value
        - type: service2Type
          name: service2Name
          key: value
lowercaseEnvironmentName2:
    services:
        - type: service3Type
          name: service3Name
          coordinates: value
        - type: service4Type
          name: service4Name
          key: value

For a given environment we declare a list of infrastructure services that we want to have deployed. Services have

  • type (example: eureka, mysql, rabbitmq, stubrunner) - this value gets then applied to the deployService Bash function

  • name - name of the service to get deployed

  • coordinates - coordinate that allows you to fetch the binary of the service. Examples: It can be a maven coordinate groupid:artifactid:version, docker image organization/nameOfImage, etc.

  • arbitrary key value pairs - you can customize the services as you wish

The stubrunner type can also have the useClasspath flag turned on to true or false.

Example:

test:
  services:
    - type: rabbitmq
      name: rabbitmq-github-webhook
    - type: mysql
      name: mysql-github-webhook
    - type: eureka
      name: eureka-github-webhook
      coordinates: com.example.eureka:github-eureka:0.0.1.M1
    - type: stubrunner
      name: stubrunner-github-webhook
      coordinates: com.example.eureka:github-analytics-stub-runner-boot-classpath-stubs:0.0.1.M1
      useClasspath: true
stage:
  services:
    - type: rabbitmq
      name: rabbitmq-github
    - type: mysql
      name: mysql-github
    - type: eureka
      name: github-eureka
      coordinates: com.example.eureka:github-eureka:0.0.1.M1

When the deployment to test or deployment to stage occurs, Spring Cloud Pipelines will:

  • for test environment, delete existing services and redeploy the ones from the list

  • for stage environment, if the service is not available it will get deployed. Otherwise nothing will happen
