Announcing Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M2

We are pleased to announce the second Milestone of the Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M2.

NOTE: Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M1 was primarily to establish compatibility with Spring Boot 2.2.x. and therefore went unannounced.

Spring Cloud Function 3.0.0.M2 modules are available for use in the Spring Milestone repository.

Quick highlights:

  • Spring Boot 2.2.x
  • Enhanced deployer (requires a separate blog)

Notable features and enhancements:

Function arity (multiple inputs/outputs)

One of the biggest features introduced with this milestone is support for functions with multiple inputs and outputs. Important thing to point out is that this feature only makes sense in reactive world where you may want to pass several streams to a function for purposes of doing some type of aggregate/merge operation on such streams. For conventional cases you can always send multiple arguments using a Collection of some type.

What’s New

As with the previous release, 1.1.0.RC1, we continue our story on caching using Apache Geode as a caching provider in Spring’s Cache Abstraction for Near Caching.

This release contains a Sample Guide along with Code Example, a Spring Boot application, to help you better understand the Near Caching pattern applied and its concepts.

This completes our coverage of the predominant caching patterns applied to modern, Cloud-Native, Microservices architectures and applications in practice today:

This Week in Spring - August 13, 2019

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of a This Week in Spring! I’ve just finished one of the most amazing experiences of my life - O’Reilly’s “Foo Camp,” an unconference where invited guests can camp on the O’Reilly Media campus headquarters and talk to each other. I met, among a zillion other people, former California governor Jerry Brown, former Estonian president Toomas Hendrik Ilves, and so many more. Now I’m in terrific Texas talking to our wonderful customers in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas and Plano. I’m also speaking at the Dallas MUG tomorrow night, if you’re around and want to come and hang out.

Spring Statemachine Goes Reactive with 3.0.0.M1

I’m pleased to announce a first milestone release of a Spring Statemachine 3.0.0.M1 and with these words I can say that Statemachine is going reactive.

Statemachine itself would not need to be reactive for its own execution but as soon as machine steps outside of its controlled environment to execute user defined logic like Actions and Guards there is no guarantees that those features would not block.

Those using persisting features with a databases will benefit with reactive changes when that side of a world becomes more reactive. Essentially every time we need to take a step outside from a machine world we may hit blocking IO operations.
