Reactive Transactions with Spring

Engineering | Mark Paluch | May 16, 2019 | ...

Back in 2016, our reactive journey started with Spring Framework 5 accompanied by a couple of reactive integrations. Throughout our journey, other projects joined the reactive movement. With R2DBC, we now also provide a reactive integration for SQL databases. With the growth of transaction-capable integrations, we constantly got asked:

Does Spring Framework support Reactive @Transaction?

At the time our journey began, we had no reactive form of transactional integrations, so this question was simple to answer: There’s no need for reactive transaction management.

Over time, MongoDB started to support multi-document transactions with MongoDB Server 4.0. R2DBC (the specification for reactive SQL database drivers) started to emerge, and we decided to pick up on R2DBC with Spring Data R2DBC. Both projects wanted to expose transactional behavior, so they eventually provided inTransaction(…)

Reactor Dysprosium-M1 is Available Now

Releases | Stephane Maldini | May 15, 2019 | ...

The 4th Generation of Reactor is arriving. On behalf of the team we want to thank all our community for the tremendous feedback. Over the last year we have grown our reactive line-up significantly including R2DBC and BlockHound. Our adoption in the java ecosystem looks phenomenal and we are collaborating with major corps including Microsoft and Google. We have more than doubled our regular Gitter audience with some awesome -you guessed it- reactive discussions happening every day. Finally, Sergei Egorov has joined the core team and we have no plans to stop expanding!

Dysprosium-M1 is available on our milestone repository. It is paving the way for more changes in the work. It's worth noting that 2 features are being deprecated, and evaluated for removal at the…

Reactor Californium-SR8 is out

Releases | Stephane Maldini | May 15, 2019 | ...

The 8th Service Release for Californium is out. Beyond fixing its share of issues, it is shipping with a turbo-charged reactor-netty -thanks to changes backported- from our new Dysprosium-M1 release.

The release is available on your preferred maven central repository.

Change logs and release notes:

Note that the release overrides Californium-SR7 which has shipped with an unwelcome regression in reactor-netty 0.8.7.

Bismuth EOL

Anticipating the coming Dysprosium-RELEASE, our reactor-core 3.1.x and reactor-netty 0.7.x lines will not receive further patches. We encourage our users to update to Californium releases trains, which match Spring Boot 2.1.x and Spring Framework 5.1.x

Engineering | Josh Long | May 14, 2019 | ...

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of Spring Tips (@SpringTipsLive)! In this installment we look at the just-landed community contribution in Spring Batch adding support for Apache Kafka. This new support offers some tantalizing opportunities to bridge batch and streaming workloads. Stage large writes to backend warehouses with Kafka and drain the stream with Spring Batch. Load large amounts of data from existing datastores and funnel it into stream processing pipelines. And the possibilities become even more interesting when you consider Spring Integration, Spring Cloud Stream,
