Spring Batch 4.2.0.M2 available now!

Releases | Mahmoud Ben Hassine | May 13, 2019 | ...

I am pleased to announce that Spring Batch 4.2.0.M2 is available now from our milestone repository.

What’s new?

This release adds a new item reader and a new item writer for Apache Kafka:

  • KafkaItemReader can read messages from a single partition or multiple partitions of the same topic. This reader stores message offsets in the ExecutionContext to support restart.
  • KafkaItemWriter uses a KafkaTemplate from the Spring for Apache Kafka project to send messages to a given topic.

I would like to thank Mathieu Ouellet for his amazing contribution in adding support for Apache Kafka in Spring Batch!

Spring Integration AWS 2.2 GA and Spring Cloud Stream Kinesis Binder 1.2 GA Available

Releases | Artem Bilan | May 13, 2019 | ...

Today it’s my pleasure to announce General Availability of Spring Integration for Amazon Web Services extension version 2.2.0 and Spring Cloud Stream Binder for AWS Kinesis version 1.2.0.

These releases can be downloaded from Maven Central, JCenter, and our release repository:

compile "org.springframework.integration:spring-integration-aws:2.2.0.RELEASE"

If you don’t use Kinesis Binder. Or via Binder dependency:

compile "org.springframework.cloud:spring-cloud-stream-binder-kinesis:1.2.0.RELEASE"

The main theme of both these releases is about new functionality to support Kinesis Client and Kinesis Producer libraries. For this purpose the spring-integration-aws is shipped with KclMessageDrivenChannelAdapter and KplMessageHandler implementations, respectively. At the moment an implementation is based on the KCL v1.x, since not all AWS dependencies we use in the spring-integration-aws provide the AWS SKD v2 implementation. Based on the Kinesis Client Library investigation, an additional CheckpointMode.periodic has been introduced to both KclMessageDrivenChannelAdapter and

I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire (SBDG) 1.0.0.RC2.
