Spring Cloud Open Service Broker M1 released

We are pleased to announce the first milestone release of Spring Cloud Open Service Broker 2.0.0.

This project was formerly named Spring Cloud - Cloud Foundry Service Broker. A lot has changed in the few years since that project was released. The service broker API that the project implements is no longer specific to Cloud Foundry but has been donated to the Open Service Broker API project and is implemented by Kubernetes and other platforms. The new project name reflects this evolution and openness.

Introducing Spring Cloud Cloud Foundry Service Broker

I am pleased to announce the newest addition to the Spring Cloud family. Spring Cloud Cloud Foundry Service Broker is a framework for building service brokers for the Cloud Foundry platform.

Cloud Foundry service brokers

Service brokers provide a means to extend Cloud Foundry with managed services that can be consumed by applications deployed to the platform. Managed services typically expose some sort of resource to an application, such as a database or other persistent store, a messaging system, or other supporting infrastructure. Service brokers publish a catalog of services and service plans, manage the provisioning and de-provisioning of service instances, and provide connection details and credentials for an application to consume the resource. Service brokers are registered to Cloud Foundry and communicate with the platform using a well-defined Service Broker REST API.

Spring Cloud Cloud Foundry Service Broker implements the full service broker REST API as Spring MVC endpoints. This allows a service broker author to focus on the logic necessary to manage the backing resources without having to worry about implementing the broker API semantics.
