Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire 1.1.1.RELEASE & 1.2.0.M2 Available!

On behalf of the Spring and Apache Geode communities, it is my pleasure to announce the release of Spring Boot for Apache Geode & Pivotal GemFire (SBDG) 1.1.1.RELEASE as well as 1.2.0.M2.

Bits for 1.1.1.RELEASE are available in Maven Central.

Bits for the 1.2.0.M2 release are available in the Spring Milestone Repository.

What’s New

SBDG 1.1.1.RELEASE has been upgraded to Spring Boot 2.1.8.RELEASE while SBDG 1.2.0.M2 has been upgraded to Spring Boot 2.2.0.M6.

Additionally, both 1.2.0.M2 and 1.1.1.RELEASE now support running your Spring Boot, Apache Geode ClientCache applications in Pivotal Platform using Pivotal Cloud Cache (PCC) as a specific user.

See Issue-44 for more details.

This is useful if you are deploying Spring Boot applications to Platform using PCC and the app needs read-only access.

In the words of the PCC product director, Pulkit Chandra, "With v1.9.0 we are introducing the concept of "shared service instances", which means an app in Space A can access a Cloud Cache cluster in Space B, but will only be able to "read" the data. This ensures for a healthy pattern of isolation for each domain cluster, where one space has the "read/write" access while others only have "read" access."

This capability and 1.9 are still in development, so this feature is tentatively planned for 1.9. However, in anticipation for this UC in Pivotal Platform, SBDG has you covered.

This feature is not limited to only being used when deploying your Spring Boot apps to Pivotal Platform. SBDG’s support for a specific runtime user works equally well when running your Spring Boot apps off Platform, connected to an externally managed Apache Geode cluster.

See the documentation for more details.

For a complete list of changes in the 1.1.1.RELEASE see the changelog.

For a complete list of changes in the 1.2.0.M2 release, see the changelog.
