SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Building resilient and evolutionary data microservices

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Vinicius Carvalho
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/building-resilient-and-evolutionary-data-microservices

How can we build data pipelines that are resilient to change? Data usually outlives application code, and we have to be prepared to deploy streams that can cope with the evolution of that data that is in motion. This talk will discuss the approach and supporting patterns to write resilient data microservices with Spring Cloud Stream and Spring Cloud Dataflow. We will discuss the role of a centralized Schema repository, and how can we work with different data models and protocols to achieve schema evolution. A centralized schema service will also help us understand what kind of data is currently being served and consumed by the different parts of our distributed system.

Spring for Apache Kafka 1.1.3 available now

It is my pleasure to announce that the Spring for Apache Kafka 1.1.3 maintenance release is available now.

As usual, thanks to the community for any feedback and contribution as always. Looking forward for more!

This release contains several bug fixes, including proper offset commit handling when using a BatchListener; therefore an upgrade is highly recommended.

Right now master has been switched to the version 2.0 for Java 8 and Spring Framework 5.0 code base. We have some plans for high-level API for Kafka Streams and Reactor Kafka support.

On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce that Service Release 5 of the Spring Cloud Camden Release Train is available today. The release can be found in our Spring Release repository and Maven Central. The documentation can be found here.

Included in this release is the Spring Boot 1.5 compatibility of all the Spring Cloud projects. Other than the addition of Spring Cloud Task, this release includes primarily bug fixes.

Cloud Foundry Manifest Editor Beta released for Visual Studio Code

As part of our activities to support developers around the globe building applications with Spring and deploying those apps to Cloud Foundry and PCF, we are proud to announce our first beta version of the Cloud Foundry Manifest editing support for Visual Studio Code (on macOS, Linux x64, and Windows).

Why Visual Studio Code?

Visual Studio Code is a lightweight and open-source code editor that runs on macOS, Linux x64, and Windows. It is based on an interesting architecture with regards to extensibility. Support for languages in Visual Studio Code gets implemented as so called “language servers”. Those language servers are independent of the editor that you use. The editor and the language server are connected using a protocol (called the language server protocol). Even though Visual Studio Code introduced this protocol, other editors and IDEs started to adopt this language server protocol - like the Eclipse IDE (from version 4.7 on) or Eclipse Che as a cloud IDE. Other lightweight editors like Sublime Text and Atom will likely offer support in the near future, too. As a result, we can focus on implementing the Cloud Foundry manifest editor support as an independent language server and you can add this support to the editor or IDE of your choice.

Spring Cloud Dalston M1 Released

On behalf of the community, I am pleased to announce that Milestone 1 (M1) of the Spring Cloud Dalston Release Train is available today. The release can be found in our Spring Milestone repository. You can check out the Dalston release notes for more information.

Notable Changes in the Dalston Release Train

Spring Cloud Vault Config is a new project that provides client-side support for externalized secret management in a distributed system via Hashicorp Vault.

Config Server

Hashicorp Vault was previously added as a backend to Config Server to go along with the VCS based backends. Config Server now has support for multiple backends via a Composite pattern. This allows for combinations of backend types that was not possible before, such as: Vault and git or multiple git backends. Authentication to git repositories hosted by AWS Codecommit is now supported.
