Spring for Apache Kafka 2.9 Release Candidate Available

Releases | Gary Russell | July 07, 2022 | ...

I am pleased to announce that the release candidate Spring for Apache Kafka 2.9.0 is now available (2.9.0-RC1) in the Spring Milestone Repo.

This version is not provided by Spring Boot dependency management, but it can be used with Boot 2.7 (or 2.6), as long as you override the Kafka dependencies as described in this appendix, especially if you are using the embedded Kafka broker.

Notable Changes

  • This version uses the 3.2.0 kafka-clients version

  • Non-blocking retry bootstrapping is now more robust

  • New Error Handler Mode

By default, after an error, the DefaultErrorHandler performs seeks on the remaining records from the last poll and re-fetches them from the broker on the next poll. With high error rates and large max.poll.records, this can cause unnecessary strain on the network. For this reason, the error handler has a new property seekAfterError, when set to false, instead of seeking the records, the remaining records are retained in memory and the consumer paused for the next poll (or multiple polls if the error handler is configured to use the ContainerPausingBackOffHandler

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week's all sorts of weird for me. It's Tuesday! But here in the US we just celebrated the 4th of July, and I, like many Americans, took a long weekend. Took some time with the family to do a little road trip up north to visit Mt. Shasta, Crater Lake, Lassen National Park, etc. It was a ton of fun, and a lot of driving! Anyway, it all kinda blurs together and felt like just one weekend, and today feels like Monday. I only just realized it was Tuesday! And you know what that means? It's time for our weekly dive into the…

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I'm writing this from the Big Apple, New York City! I'm here for the SpringOne Tour 2022 NYC event. This is my first time back in New York City since before the pandemic and it has been so much fun. I've been catching up with people I've not seen in years. I even accidentally bumped into people I had no idea was going to also be in town at the same time as I was. New York City is like a magnet for fun, and for fun people. Anyway, we've got a lot of stuff to get to this roundup, so let's dive right into it.

Also: if you're just reading this, today - the 28th of June - is the last day to submit to SpringOne 2022, being held in my…
