Composed Function Support in Spring Cloud Data Flow

Spring Cloud Stream has recently added a feature to compose a function definition into an existing Spring Cloud Stream application. In this blog, we’ll see how Spring Cloud Data Flow
makes use of this feature to compose functions in Streaming pipelines.

What’s different about it?

In Spring Cloud Data Flow, streaming data pipelines are comprised of Spring Cloud Stream applications. A developer can pick and choose the out-of-the-box streaming applications, which cover many common use cases. A developer can also extend these out-of-the-box applications or create custom applications by using Spring Cloud Stream framework.
