Bootiful GCP: Getting Started with Spring Cloud for Google Cloud Platform (1/8)

Hi Spring fans! In this brief 8 part series we’re going to look at the Spring Cloud integration for Google Cloud Platform, called Spring Cloud GCP. Spring Cloud GCP represents a joint effort between Google and Pivotal that endeavors to provide a first class experience for Spring Cloud developers when using the Google Cloud Platform. Pivotal Cloud Foundry users will enjoy an even easier integration with the GCP service broker. I wrote these installments with input from Google Cloud Developer Advocate, and my buddy, Ray Tsang. You can also catch a walkthrough of Spring Cloud GCP in our Google Next 2018 session, Bootiful Google Cloud Platform. Thanks buddy! As always, I’d love to hear from you if you have feedback.


Spring Session Bean-M1 and Apple-SR4 Released

This post was authored by Vedran Pavić

On behalf of the community I’m pleased to announce the releases of Spring Session BOM Bean-M1 and Apple-SR4. Spring Boot users will be happy to learn that these release were picked up in recent 2.1.0.M1 and 2.0.4.RELEASE releases of Spring Boot, respectively.

Spring Session Bean-M1

The Bean-M1 is first milestone release that is based on Spring Session 2.1.0.M1.

The following table provides an overview of all the included modules and their respective versions:

Module Version

Spring Session Core


Spring Session Data GemFire


Spring Session Data Geode


Spring Session Data MongoDB


Spring Session Data Redis


Spring Session Hazelcast


Spring Session JDBC


Spring Session 2.1.0.M1

The 2.1.0.M1 is the first milestone release in 2.1.x lifecycle. Highlights of this release are support for Same-Site Cookie, which is another mechanism that helps developers to protect from Cross-Site Request Forgery, and support for HttpSessionBindingListener. The release also includes the usual dependency upgrades, including picking up Spring Framework 5.1.0.RC1 as a baseline. You can find the complete details of the release in the changelog.

Using the BOM

With Maven:


With Gradle:

plugins {
	id 'io.spring.dependency-management' version '1.0.6.RELEASE'

dependencyManagement {
	imports {
		mavenBom 'org.springframework.session:spring-session-bom:Bean-M1'

dependencies {
	compile 'org.springframework.session:spring-session-data-redis'

Spring Framework 5.1 RC2 available now

Dear Spring community,

It is my pleasure to announce that our second Spring Framework 5.1 release candidate is available from our milestone repository now.

Spring Framework 5.1 RC2 comes with dependency updates such as the latest Reactor Californium M2, RxJava 2.2, and JUnit 5.3 RC1. It addresses several reported issues on JDK 11 and GraalVM (tracking their release candidates) and provides further refinements within our 5.1 themes, in particular with respect to log output and startup performance.

This is the foundation for the upcoming Spring Boot 2.1 M2 release next week. We’re aiming for a Spring Framework 5.1 RC3 in early September still, picking up Reactor Californium RC1 and wrapping up our JDK 11 efforts, moving on to 5.1 GA in late September.

The Open Service Broker API project allows developers to deliver services to applications running within cloud native platforms such as Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes, and OpenShift.


Spring Cloud Skipper 1.1.0.M1

We are pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Skipper 1.1.0.M1

Spring Cloud Skipper is a lightweight tool that allows you to discover Spring Boot applications and manage their lifecycle on multiple Cloud Platforms. You can use Skipper standalone or integrate it with Continuous Integration pipelines to help implement the practice of Continuous Deployment.

The getting started section in the reference guide is the best place to start kicking the tires.

Focus on Cloud Foundry manifest:

This milestone release adds a new feature to perform the lifecycle operations to install, upgrade, rollback and delete on any applications that can be deployed into Cloud Foundry using the Cloud Foundry manifest format.


Spring Cloud for Google Cloud Platform 1.0 goes GA!

Dear Spring Community!

Today, together with Google Cloud team, I’m very excited to announce that Spring Cloud for Google Cloud Platform project of version 1.0 is Generally Available at last!

This project has started as a collaboration with the Google Cloud team (and we really appreciate their effort) and aims to implement and expose well-know Spring Framework patterns and abstractions to bring the benefits of Spring and Spring Boot to Java developers using GCP services. Together we spent many hours (more than a year!) discussing the best APIs and approaches which should be convenient and useful to target projects aiming to consume GCP services. Even if we iterated the implementations multiple times to provide the developer experience, right now we believe that the project is mature and stable, and we believe in its potential. And now we are very thrilled to continue our collaboration for implementing more features to expose GCP services for Spring Cloud applications!
