Spring Batch 4.1 goes GA!

Releases | Mahmoud Ben Hassine | October 29, 2018 | ...

I am pleased to announce that Spring Batch 4.1.0.RELEASE is now available.

What's New in Spring Batch 4.1 GA

This release adds the following features:

  • A new @SpringBatchTest annotation to simplify testing batch components
  • A new @EnableBatchIntegration annotation to simplify remote chunking and partitioning configuration
  • Support for reading and writing data in JSON format
  • Support for validating items with the Bean Validation API
  • Support for JSR-305 annotations
  • Enhancements to the FlatFileItemWriterBuilder API

@SpringBatchTest Annotation

Spring Batch provides some nice utility classes (such as the JobLauncherTestUtils and JobRepositoryTestUtils) as well as test execution listeners (StepScopeTestExecutionListener and JobScopeTestExecutionListener) to test batch components. However, in order to use these utilities, you must configure them explicitly. This release introduces a new annotation named @SpringBatchTest

compile "org.springframework.integration:spring-integration-core:5.1.0.RELEASE"

First of all I would like to thank all community members for their ongoing active contributions to the framework!

Besides the regular dependencies upgrades, bug fixes and internal performance improvements here are some notable new features introduced in this version:


For strict ordering of messages publishing a BoundRabbitChannelAdvice can be used as a MessageHandler advice to allow to perform all the downstream AMQP operations in the same thread-bound Channel

Spring for Apache Kafka 2.2 Released

Releases | Gary Russell | October 29, 2018 | ...

I am pleased to announce that Spring for Apache Kafka 2.2.0.RELEASE is now available.

While the 2.1.x release is compatible with the 2.0.0 kafka-clients jar, (since 2.1.9), this version requires 2.0.0 (and provides a 2.0.0 embedded broker for testing).


  • The SeekToCurrentErrorHandler can now "skip" records that fail repeatedly

  • Such "skipped" records can be published to a dead-letter topic (or otherwise disposed of by application code)

    • Headers are added with diagnostics about the failure

  • When using transactions, the same functionality can be achieved with the default AfterRollbackProcessor

  • You can now use the listener container factory to create any arbitrary listener container, not just containers for @KafkaListener s

    • This allows more convenient use of Spring Boot’s auto configuration properties for any container

  • @KafkaListener annotations can now override the container factory’s concurrency and autoStartup properties

Spring Data Lovelace SR2 released

Releases | Mark Paluch | October 29, 2018 | ...

On behalf of the Spring Data team, I'd like to announce the availability of the Lovelace SR2 maintenance release. This release builds on the just-released Spring Framework 5.1.2 service release. Lovelace SR2 is the version that you will get with Spring Boot 2.1 GA that is scheduled for the next few days. If you use Spring Boot 2.0.x and want to consume this service release, you can set the version property (spring-data-releasetrain.version) to Lovelace-SR2.

This service releases ships with 32 tickets fixed.
