This Week in Spring - August 22nd, 2017

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installation of This Week in Spring. Can you believe we’re already nearing the end of August?? Time sure flies!

Last week and over the weekend I was in Hangzhou, China visiting with Alibaba, talking to a few of the teams using Spring Boot and Spring Cloud at China-scale.

This week I’m in Shanghai, China, where I’ve been talking to customers and spending a few days with the teams at Microsoft China who are working on the Spring Boot and Pivotal Cloud Foundry integrations for Microsoft Azure. They’re doing some amazing work and it’s been an honor to hang out with them. Check out all the cool Spring Boot starters that they’ve built for the various Azure services.

Introducing Actuator Endpoints in Spring Boot 2.0

Spring Boot 2 brings important changes to Actuator and I am pleased, on behalf of the team, to give you a sneak peek to what’s coming in 2.0.0.M4.

Working on a major new release gives us the opportunity to revisit some of the public contracts and improve them. We quickly felt that the endpoint infrastructure was one of them: currently, the web endpoints in the Actuator are only supported with Spring MVC (no JAX-RS support). Also, creating a new endpoint that exposes several operations requires writing quite a lot of boiler plate: you need to write a main endpoint, the Spring MVC extension (as a @RestController), a JMX MBean and the necessary auto-configuration. As of Spring Boot 2 support for a "reactive" actuator became an obvious requirement that also brings several new challenges.

This Week in Spring - August 15th, 2017

Hi Spring fans and welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! It’s been a busy week! I started last week talking to a group of developers in North Carolina, then gave a VJUG presentation with Matt Raible in San Francisco, then spoke to developers in Saint Louis, then flew to New York City to shoot a video on continuous delivery for three days in a hot studio (over the weekend no less!) and now as I wing back to San Francisco I look forward to spending a blissful 14 hours on the ground before I’m off to Asia (Hangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, and Singapore) for about four weeks! I’m not the only who’s been busy, though! As usual, we’ve got a lot to cover this week so let’s get to it!

There's no place like production. SpringOne Platform will illuminate the path.

Hi Spring fans!

My favorite time of the year is almost here! It’s that special time when people reunite, in the northern hemisphere’s chilly December to give freely and unconditionally of one another; when people have jovial discussions (and sometimes heated debates) over dinner with people they admire; when people open their hearts and minds to each other; when we reflect on the year behind us and look forward to tomorrow, the next week and the next year; when amazing new memories we’ll cherish forever are forged. It’s that special time of giving, of openness. I don’t need to tell you about this special time, though! Of course, I’m talking about the time of the year for SpringOne Platform! (What else could I have been talking about?)
