Spring Cloud Data Flow 2.5.0.RC1 Released

Spring Cloud Data Flow team is pleased to announce the first milestone release of 2.5.0.RC1.

This first release candidate of 2.5.0 adds some bug fixes and the following features:

  • Support application metadata as part of the Container images. Before this release, we only supported application property whitelisting when using a maven artifact.

  • Support for Azure AD integration using OAuth 2.0. Spring Cloud Data Flow, Spring Cloud Skipper servers along with the Spring Cloud Data Flow shell can be configured to integrate with Azure AD for authentication and authorization.

  • Removal of Scheduler task launcher component when scheduling tasks. In Spring Cloud Data Flow 2.3.x, the scheduling of tasks was designed to have an intermediate scheduler task launcher component to enhance the continuous deployment user experience. Since this component added some additional complexities and overhead on Kubernetes, the 2.5.x release removed this intermediary task launcher. We also added a migration tool to migrate the schedules from 2.3.x and 2.4.x

Spring Tips: Configuration

Engineering | Josh Long | April 23, 2020 | ...

speaker: Josh Long (@starbuxman)

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of Spring tips! in this installment, we're going to look at something that's rather foundational, and something that I wish I'd addressed earlier: configuration. And no, I don't mean functional configuration or java configuration or anything like that, I'm talking about the string values that inform how your code executes. the stuff that you put in application.properites. that configuration.

All configuration in Spring emanates from the Spring Environment abstraction. The Environment is sort of like a dictionary - a map with keys and values. Environment is just an interface through which we can ask questions about, you know, the Environment. The abstraction lives in Spring Framework and was introduced in Spring 3, more than a decade ago. up until that point, there was a focused mechanism to allow integration of configuration called property placeholder resolution. This environment mechanism and the constellation of classes around that interface more than…

Spring HATEOAS brings you new ways to configure clients

Engineering | Greg L. Turnquist | April 22, 2020 | ...

Dear Spring community,

With Spring HATEOAS’s recent 1.1.0.M3 release, we bring you a new way to configure clients!

The first step in building hypermedia-based services may be configuring your server, which Spring HATEOAS has provided for a long time through its @EnableHypermediaSupport().

The next major step is building a client that can parse that hypermedia output. This has always been available, but it required you to know some of the deepest innards of the Spring Framework.

Until today.

With the latest version of Spring HATEOAS, it has been made much easier to configure RestTemplate, WebClient, or WebTestClient

Spring Cloud 2020.0.0-M1 Released

Releases | Spencer Gibb | April 17, 2020 | ...

On behalf of the community, I am pleased to announce that the Milestone 1 (M1) of the Spring Cloud 2020.0.0 (Code Name: Ilford) Release Train is available today. The release can be found in the Spring Milestone repository. You can check out the 2020 release notes for more information.

Notable Changes in the 2020 Release Train

We have changed our release train versioning scheme. We now follow Calendar Versioning or calver for short. We will follow the YYYY.MINOR.MICRO scheme where MINOR is an incrementing number that starts at zero each year. The MICRO segment corresponds to suffixes previously used: .0 is analogous to .RELEASE and .2 is analogous to .SR2. Pre-release suffixes will also change from using a . to a - for the separator, for example 2020.0.0-M1 and 2020.0.0-RC2. We will also stop prefixing snapshots with BUILD- -- for example 2020.0.0-SNAPSHOT
