Spring Cloud Stream 1.0.0.RC2 is now available

Releases | Marius Bogoevici | April 07, 2016 | ...

On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Stream 1.0.0.RC2, available here. As part of the release candidate cycle, it comes with a number of bug fixes and a small number adjustments. The complete list of changes is available here.

Some highlights:

  • Spring Cloud Stream applications now use the ObjectMapper provided by Spring Boot, if available;
  • Header embedding is now a general purpose producer/consumer property. It can be enabled or disabled by middlewares that require embedding for header propagation. This allows easier interoperability outside Spring Cloud Stream; (until now it was a Kafka-specific property);
  • Further documentation and sample improvements.

Spring Framework 4.3 goes RC1

Releases | Juergen Hoeller | April 06, 2016 | ...

Dear Spring community,

It is my pleasure to announce that a feature-complete Spring Framework 4.3 release candidate is available now! This is a perfect opportunity for you to get involved: Please run your regression tests against it, and of course, feel free to try the new features...

Dependency injection refinements:

* @Autowired injection of Map/Collection beans and self references * @Autowired on configuration class constructors (finally!) * No need for declaring @Autowired on a unique non-default constructor * ObjectProvider as a richer variant of an ObjectFactory handle * InjectionPoint/DependencyDescriptor as an injectable argument for @Bean methods

MVC processing refinements:

* Default processing of OPTIONS, HEAD, Allow and If-Unmodified-Since * Support for custom HTTP Vary configuration and HTTP Range on custom resources * Precomposed @GetMapping, @PostMapping, @RequestScope, @SessionScope etc * @RequestAttribute and @SessionAttribute as handler method arguments * Full support for Jackson 2.7's new type resolution algorithm

Various infrastructural refinements across the framework:

* Wider support for composed annotations and for placeholders/expressions in attributes * Richer programmatic metadata in core container exceptions * Component scanning in manifest-defined classpath entries * A background initialization option for bootstrapping JPA / Hibernate * A 'sync' flag on @Cacheable and support for the Caffeine cache provider

We are working towards an RC2 with some remaining fine-tuning and performance improvements in the meantime, preparing for 4.3's general availability on June 1st!

Cheers, Juergen

1 Stream, 2 Applications, and 3 Dependencies for Spring Cloud Data Flow

Engineering | Josh Long | April 05, 2016 | ...

I just wanted to register here an experience that made me smile yesterday: making the rapidly improving Spring Cloud Data Flow wiggle from (Spring Boot) start(-ers) to service in a matter of minutes!

The only pre-requisite is that you have a Redis instance runnning. My Redis instance is running on and it required no further configuration for Spring Boot to find and work with it.

We'll use the epic Spring Initializr to make short work of generating our applications. Remember those silly Apple commercials, "There's an App For That?" Nevermind that, there's a checkbox for that! Let's…
