Introducing Spring Cloud App Broker

We recently announced the general availability of Spring Cloud Services 3.0, which involved a major redesign of the previous architecture used in that project. As detailed in the related blog post, Spring Cloud Services has moved to the latest versions of Spring Framework and Spring Boot, and is now built on a Reactive programming model and Spring WebFlux. Two key components of this redesign are offered as open source Spring Cloud projects.
