Spring Cloud Skipper 1.0 M1 Released

Releases | Mark Pollack | October 30, 2017 | ...

On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Skipper 1.0 M1.

Skipper is a lightweight tool that allows you to discover Spring Boot applications and manage their lifecycle on multiple Cloud Platforms. You can use Skipper standalone or integrate it with Continuous Integration pipelines to help implement the practice of Continuous Deployment.

The main features in Skipper 1.0 M1 are:

  • Define multiple platform accounts where Spring Boot applications can be deployed. Supported platforms are Local, Cloud Foundry, and Kubernetes.
  • Substitute variables in Mustache templated files that describe how to deploy applications to a platform.
  • Search Package Repositories for existing applications.
  • Upgrade/Rollback a package based on a simple blue/green workflow.
  • Store the history of resolved template files (aka 'application manifests') which represent the final description of what has been deployed to a platform for a specific release.
  • Use via a standalone interactive shell or web API.

Spring Web Services 3.0.0.RELEASE / 2.4.2.RELEASE is out!

Engineering | Greg L. Turnquist | October 30, 2017 | ...

Greetings Spring community,

Spring Web Services has released 3.0.0 for general availability as well as released a minor patch, 2.4.2.RELEASE.

As stated in the previous blog post, the 2.x series will be maintained as long as Spring Framework 4.x is supported, yet any new work will be conducted on the master branch.

The links below include related tickets.

2.4.2 Release Notes | 2.4.2 Documentation.

3.0.0.RELEASE Release Notes | 3.0.0.RELEASE Documentation.

  • 3.0.0.RELEASE:

    • Better handling of large attachments to avoid OutOfMemory exceptions.

    • Wss4jSecurityInterceptor enhancements including SAML callbacks

    • SpringSecurityPasswordValidationCallbackHandler improvement to avoid NPE from lack of a logged-in user

    • Fixes to SOAP 1.1/SOAP 1.2 message header handling

    • Fix content-type for Axiom SOAP 1.2

    • Upgrade to latest versions of AspectJ

  • 2.4.2.RELEASE:

    • Backporting of the same SpringSecurityPasswordValidationCallbackHandler fix

    • Accidentally moved wss4j 2.x version too far forward to ensure stable compatibility. If you wish to use the very latest wss4j, you must move to the 3.0 version.

$ diff -q spring-data-gemfire spring-data-geode

Engineering | John Blum | October 26, 2017 | ...

Greetings Spring Community and Pivotal GemFire/Apache Geode Users-

One question I constantly get asked is, "What is the difference between Spring Data GemFire and Spring Data Geode?"

Now that Spring Data Geode is part of the Spring Data Release Train, beginning with Kay (see the official release announcement for more details), the timing is finally right to answer this question in an open forum.

To help answer this question, I set 2 simple objectives for both Spring Data GemFire and Spring Data Geode (collectively known as SDG^2 now):

  1. First, and most importantly, allow users to seamlessly interchange Spring Data Geode with Spring Data GemFire, and vice versa.

  2. Next, help users migrate their Spring Boot, Pivotal GemFire or Apache Geode based applications from their local development environment to a managed environment, like Pivotal CloudFoundry, with little to no code changes at all.
