Spring Social End of Life Announcement

Engineering | Craig Walls | July 03, 2018 | ...

Today it is with an optimistic look to the future that I am announcing the end of life for Spring Social, a project that I have had the pleasure to work with over the past eight years.

With the release of Spring Security 5, much of the functionality offered by Spring Social’s connection framework—which I consider the most valuable piece of Spring Social—is now part of Spring Security.

Hands on MongoDB 4.0 transactions with Spring Data

Engineering | Christoph Strobl | June 28, 2018 | ...

With MongoDB 4.0, ACID transactions have arrived in the Document store, enforcing all-or-nothing execution and maintaining data integrity. So, let’s get straight to it by looking at both the synchronous and the reactive execution models.

At the time of this writing, MongoDB multi-document transactions are supported across a single replica set and feel like the transactions you are probably familiar with from relational databases. Looking at the driver API, one feels immediately at home:

try (ClientSession session = client.startSession()) {
