Composed Function Support in Spring Cloud Data Flow

Spring Cloud Stream has recently added a feature to compose a function definition into an existing Spring Cloud Stream application. In this blog, we’ll see how Spring Cloud Data Flow
makes use of this feature to compose functions in Streaming pipelines.

What’s different about it?

In Spring Cloud Data Flow, streaming data pipelines are comprised of Spring Cloud Stream applications. A developer can pick and choose the out-of-the-box streaming applications, which cover many common use cases. A developer can also extend these out-of-the-box applications or create custom applications by using Spring Cloud Stream framework.


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.
