Spring Cloud Task 1.0.1.RELEASE is now available

We are pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Task 1.0.1.RELEASE. This is the recommended GA release for Spring Cloud Task and is available from Maven Central as well as the usual other locations.

How did we get here?

Spring Cloud Task, is a step in an evolution of data applications in the Spring portfolio. As we announce this release, it may be helpful to look at how we got to this point.

It began with Spring Batch

Built upon the Spring portfolio, the evolution of this type of finite workload really began with Spring Batch. One of the main workload specific extensions of the Spring framework, Spring Batch provided functionality for performing finite amounts of processing in an enterprise friendly way. With multiple processing models (Tasklet vs Chunk) as well as scalability options that allowed for optimizing data processing both within a single JVM and using multiple JVMs. Spring Batch has served as the standard bearer of finite processing on the JVM for many years.

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in rainy but beautiful Seoul, South Korea and Tokyo (come join me for a talk on Wednesday!), Osaka, and Hiroshima, Japan where I’ll be doing a few meetups and talking to businesses of all shapes and sizes.
