Spring Integration 6.0.0-RC1 Available

Dear Spring community,

I was so eager to find and fix bugs in the latest Spring Integration release, that missed to announce a 6.0 RC1 last week. But I believe it is still worth to mention it even after Spring Boot 3.0.0-RC1 announcement since there is a number of notable changes and improvements.

So, please, welcome Spring Integration 6.0 first Release Candidate. It can be obtained from Spring Milestone repository:

dependencyManagement {
    imports {
        mavenBom 'org.springframework.integration:spring-integration-bom:6.0.0-RC1'
    }
}

This Week in Spring - October 25th, 2022

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! When last we spoke, I was in Las Vegas, NV, for the JavaOne show. It was amazing! I’m in sunny Singapore, then off to Malaysia and Thailand. It’s the first time I’ve been to any of these places since 2019! How good it is to be back! I’ve so missed it.

The Spring team is busy preparing for both Spring Boot 3 (and the Spring Framework 6 release that underpins it) and SpringOne 2022. Have you booked your ticket for SpringOne 2022 yet? It’s going to be held in sunny San Francisco, and - of course - it’ll be the absolute best place to learn about Spring Framework 6, Spring Boot 3, GraalVM, the new Ahead-of-time compilation engine in Spring Boot 3, and more. Also, it’s a rare chance to hang out with the Spring team proper. It’s been years since any of us has had the chance to do that, myself included! Don’t miss this! Register now, and get a $200 discount using the following code: S1VM22_Advocate_200.

Introducing Spring Modulith

When designing software systems, architects and developers have plenty of architectural options to choose from. Microservice-based systems have become ubiquitous in the last couple of years. However, the idea of monolithic, modular systems has also regained popularity recently. Independent of the architectural style ultimately selected, the individual applications comprising the overall system need their structure to be evolvable and able to follow changes in business requirements.

Traditionally, application frameworks have provided structural guidance by providing abstractions aligned with technical concepts, such as Spring Framework’s stereotype annotations (@Controller, @Service, @Repository, and so on). However, shifting the focus to align code structure with the domain has proven to lead to better structured applications that are ultimately more understandable and maintainable. Until now, the Spring team has given verbal and written guidance on how we recommend structuring your Spring Boot applications. We decided that we can do more than that.
