Sneak peek at Reactor-Core 3.2 with Milestone 1

Releases | Simon Baslé | January 16, 2018 | ...

Greetings Reactive Spring community!

While the team is still working heavily on the 3.1 line, we also wanted to give the community a chance to get a sneak peek at what’s coming for the future 3.2 line.

In particular, the big goodie slated for 3.2.0.RELEASE is the addition of what we’ve been calling "error mode", "continue mode" or lately more officially "error strategy".

The idea

It is simple, really: what if exceptions in user code that get executed within operators could be recovered from, allowing the sequence to continue?

Let’s take an example, and imagine you have the following method:

Building richer hypermedia with Spring HATEOAS

Engineering | Greg L. Turnquist | January 12, 2018 | ...

Greetings Spring community,

As previously announced, we have released a new Affordances API in 1.0.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT. In this blog post, we’ll take a peek at exactly what this feature lets you do.

History of Affordances

For starters, what is an affordance? Doing a little archeology, Mike Admundsen, a REST advocate, has an article detailing the word’s origins, going back at least to 1986:

The affordances of the environment are what it offers …​ what it provides or furnishes, either for good or ill. The verb 'to afford' is found in the dictionary, but the noun 'affordance' is not. I have made it…

This Year in Spring - 2017

Engineering | Josh Long | December 27, 2017 | ...

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another, albeit very special, installment of This Week in Spring! This is the last installment before 2018 and so we'll take the opportunity to review, as we always do in the last installment of the year, this very exciting year in Spring and its ecosystem.

Let me, on behalf of the Spring and larger Pivotal team, to be the first to wish you and yours a heartfelt happy and safe New Year! Let's first look at some of the major trends that defined 2017. We've got a lot to cover!

  • Spring Framework 5 and Reactive Programming - this year we released Spring Framework 5.0. This release is huge - packed to the gills with new features including support for Java EE 8, Java SE 9 and - of course - reactive programming based on Project Reactor and the fully-reactive new web runtime called Spring WebFlux. The web runtime supports a Spring MVC-like component model as well as a new handler model (called functional reactive endpoints) and a new, fully reactive HTTP client called WebClient. Spring Framework 5's reactive support, as impressive as it is, is only the beginning. Spring Framework 5.0 is the foundation for reactive data access support in Spring Data Kay, for reactive security integration in Spring Security 5.0 and for reactive messaging in Spring Cloud Stream. All of these will…
