The Spring team have just released version 0.6.0 of the spring-graalvm-native project. This project is intended to make it easier for anyone trying to build GraalVM native images of their Spring applications.
For a deep dive on native images with Spring, please see the Devoxx talk by Sébastien Deleuze.
In this blog post we’ll talk about what has changed since then and point you to some key resources enabling you to try it out! This project is in the spring-projects-experimental github org, indicating it is a work in progress, but we have a number of sample applications showing the kinds of technology that are already working and lots of documentation on how to experiment with your own apps.

Hi, Spring fans! In this installment, we’re going to take a look at the new Kotlin DSL for Spring Integration. I’ve covered both Spring Integration and Kotlin in other videos before. I am pretty sure I’ve also used Spring Integration from within a Kotlin-based Spring application, but this is the first time I’ve been able to cover a Kotlin DSL specifically for Spring Integration.
Spring Integration has been around for a long time - 13 years at least - and it serves a timeless use case: the integration of disparate systems and services. It’s patterned after the seminal tome by Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf, Enterprise Integration Patterns. It’s a fantastic tome, and I couldn’t more enthusiastically recommend it as it serves, after a fashion, as the documentation required for understanding Spring Integration. Spring Integration codifies the patterns from the book; API elements are named for the relevant patterns in the book.
Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How’re you doing? I’m doing all right, all things considered! I miss you all.
OK, so, first things first: we’re kicking off #TanzuTuesday today. Join us TODAY at 1pm PST/PDT and I’ll introduce you to the wide world of Reactive Spring!

Dear Spring Data Community,
We want to share news with you about the Spring Data for Apache Solr module.
After its initial rise as one for the first community-led Spring Data projects and its later inception as one of the core modules, community interest, feature requests, and bug reports have declined.
In our effort to balance time (based on popularity and usage data of the projects we have) the module has seen only occasional updates and fixes for the past few years. This is why we are seeking volunteers who are willing to help maintain the module, putting Spring Data for Apache Solr back into community mode.
Reading Time: about 6 minutes.
Practice Time: about 20 minutes.
If, like me, you’re still at the beginning of your RSocket journey, check out the motivations behind the RSocket protocol. This short but insightful document includes one message that resonates very strongly with me — ‘a mismatched abstraction increases the cost of developing a system.’
From a software design point of view, RSocket’s four interaction models offer a significant benefit. It means we can model our component-to-component communications using the correct interaction model for each use case. This more productive model could save you lots of time and energy when coding!
On behalf of the team and everyone that contributed, I am pleased to announce that the fourth milestone of Spring Boot 2.3 has been released and is available from our milestone repository.
This release closes 99 issues and pull requests. Thanks to all those who have contributed.
Highlights of this milestone include:
- Support for liveness and readiness probes.
- Improved support for building OCI images.
- Improved support for building layered jars, including customization when using Gradle.
On behalf of the community, I’m pleased to announce the release of Spring Security 5.3.1 (release notes), 5.2.3 (release notes), 5.1.9 (release notes) , 5.0.15 (release notes), 4.2.15 (release notes). These releases deliver bug fixes along with some minor improvements. Users are encouraged to update to the latest patch release.
As we announced earlier, version 4.1.4 is the last release of the 4.1 line. Please upgrade to version 4.2.2 at your earliest convenience as this is the primary active branch for the moment and which will be supported until the end of 2020.
The next feature release will be 4.3, with a GA planned for October 2020, aligned with Spring Framework 5.3 and Spring Boot 2.4. This release is expected to be the last feature branch of Spring Batch 4.
