Spring Integration 4.3 M2 is Available

Releases | Artem Bilan | April 26, 2016 | ...

I am pleased to announce that Spring Integration 4.3.0.M2 is now available from the Spring milestone repository. This release closes about 50 JIRAs and includes almost a 100 commits.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed. Especially to the Spring Cloud Stream team, whose comprehensive Spring Integration usage influences the project direction.

Some key feature since the First Milestone:

  • The Spring Integration runtime object model, together with Component Metrics, now can be exposed as a graph, which may be used to visualize the current state of the integration application. When running in a web container, the @EnableIntegrationGraphController annotation, together with an IntegrationGraphServer bean, creates a service to retrieve the model and state over the REST protocol, e.g. in JSON notation:

UML Modeling

Understanding Reactive types

Engineering | Sébastien Deleuze | April 19, 2016 | ...

Following previous Reactive Spring and Reactor Core 3.0 blog posts, I would like to explain why Reactive types are useful and how they compare to other asynchronous types, based on what we have learned while working on the Spring Framework 5 upcoming Reactive support.

Why using Reactive types?

Reactive types are not intended to allow you to process your requests or data faster, in fact they will introduce a small overhead compared to regular blocking processing. Their strength lies in their capacity to serve more request concurrently, and to handle operations with latency, such as requesting…

This Week in Spring - April 19th, 2016

Engineering | Josh Long | April 19, 2016 | ...

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I'm in Stuttgart and Mainz, Germany and Paris, France, speaking to customers and at the JAX conference, then it's off to Paris, France, to speak at the Devoxx France edition. If you're around in any of these places don't hesitate to reach out I'd love to say hello.

Also, tonight, I'll be joining my friends from industry (Daniel Bryant, Markus Eisele, and Simon Maple) for the ZeroTurnaround webinar, Microservices for the Enterprise. There are already more than 3,000 people registered and I hope to see you there, as well!

Testing improvements in Spring Boot 1.4

Engineering | Phil Webb | April 15, 2016 | ...

One of the nice things about working for Pivotal is that they have a great agile development division called Pivotal Labs. The teams within Labs are big proponents of Lean and XP software methodologies such as pair programming and test-driven development. Their love of testing has had a particular impact on Spring Boot 1.4 as we've started to get great feedback on things that could be improved. This blog post highlights some of the new testing features that have just landed in the latest M2 release.

The easiest way to unit test any Spring @Component is to not involve…

SpringOne Platform

Engineering | Josh Long | April 14, 2016 | ...

The Bigger Picture

Let's talk about Pivotal. Our ambition is to make business more agile, to reduce the time around the innovation loop; speed is the single biggest advantage an organization can have. Pivotal's main "product" is agility. This translates naturally into technology. Microservices are well-defined, small, easy-to-evolve, independently deployable batches of functionality. They lend themselves to rapid iteration because they're small. Spring Boot and the Spring ecosystem make short work of standing up new microservices and applications, and Spring Cloud handles the complexity in…
