Hi, Spring fans! This week, I'm in Miami for the Java User Group and at home working on new episodes of Spring Tips. Just trying to keep moving! It's been a whirlwind week in Spring, though, so let's get to it!
- Reactor team ninja Simon Baslé has just announced the first milestone of the Californium release train of project Reactor.
- This is a nice example of using Spring Data JDBC with JOOQ... in the Spring Data examples!
- Happy Birthday, Istio! This post looks at how Pivotal embeds the service mesh to Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes, and Knative.
- Ryan Baxter has just announced the first release of Spring Cloud Finchley, SR1.
- Our very own Paul Czarkowski has just published a fairly lengthy tutorial on deploying Spinnaker to Pivotal Container Service (or any Kubernetes) using Helm and, then, creating pipelines in Spinnaker to deploy applications to PKS/Kubernetes. This is awesome!
- Spring Integration lead Gary Russell just announced maintenance and milestone releases for Spring Integration and Spring AMQP
- Spring Integration for AWS 2.0.0.RC1 and Spring Cloud Stream Kinesis Binder 1.0.0.RC1 can be found here.
- Spring Vault 2.1 M1 is available now.
- Spring IO Platform Cairo SR3
- Spring IO Platform Brussels SR12.
- This Week in Spring - July 31st, 2018.
- This is a super helpful post by data-driven Spring community member Michael Simons, now working at Neo4j, on how to create Spring Data Neo4j repositories that find nodes by arbitrary properties.
- Follow this dead-simple tutorial on how to use BOSH, the no-drift, service-not-server-centric package manager for infrastructure that underpins Cloud Foundry and Pivotal's Kubernetes services, to create a dead-simple BOSH release.
- re:Work - Guide: Understand team effectiveness
- This is a great post from Gregor Hohpe, of the Enterprise Integration Patterns book fame, on the end of multitenancy.
- This is an interesting case study. What's most interesting to me is that it talks about both Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes being used together. Nice!
- This is a nice article on the best practices for Spring Boot developers. There's a lot of good stuff here! A few of us on the Spring team contributed input. Check it out!
- I love this Spanish-language post on how to monitor Spring Boot-based applications.
- Check out the latest release of Trampoline, a tool for managing instances of Spring Boot-based applications running on your location node during development.
- This won't be news to some of you — because, presumably, by this point, you've already listened to all of them! But, did you know that the Spring YouTube channel (located at spring.io/video) now has over 100k subscribers! Are you a subscriber? Now's a good time to join the fun. If you're already a subscriber, thank you so much!
- I love Marcos Barbero's numerous Portuguese-language posts on Spring Boot — check it out!
- What do you need to know about migrating to Java 11? (Remember, it's just around the corner!)
- Spring Cloud Kubernetes has just graduated from incubation, and the 0.3.0.RELEASE (a preview release) is now on Maven central.
- Oded Shopen has a nice post on deploying Spring Boot-based applications to Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
- Exploring Pivotal Cloud Foundry's Apps Manager - Oded Shopen - Medium
- Oded Shopen also put together this nice post on three abstractions for event processing, which is also worth a read!
- Oded Shopen also did a great talk on session management with Spring and Redis in this Redis Labs talk.
- Alex Soto has a nice post on deploying Cockroach DB on Kubernetes and talking to it from Spring Boot.
- These are the slides to Corneil du Plessis's talk on Spring Fu.
- The talks from the JVM Language Summit are up and accessible! I devour these talks every year. There's no better resource for learning all the latest and greatest for the future of Java.
- It'd be so amazing to be able to easily link to your IDE's workspace so that somebody else could pick up where you left off, inheriting your context and everything else. Now, with Eclipse Che, the browser-based Eclipse IDE, you can!
- Whether you're using Kubernetes or Cloud Foundry, you should get to know the open service broker API.
- As if you need any more reasons to come to the epic SpringOne Platform event this year in Washington DC, Rod Johnson, the creator of Spring and CEO of Atomist, will be there, too!
- Get started with the latest and greatest in stream processing and integration powerhouse Spring Cloud Data Flow in a single tweet!
- This is pretty interesting! This post demonstrates how to use the Samebug extension for JUnit 5 to support easier debugging of Java applications.
- Thorben Janssen has a great post on zero-downtime database updates. Not much code, but it is a very useful post indeed.
- Missed a few _This Week in Spring_s? Want to catch up on the latest and greatest in the Pivotal and Spring ecosystems in a monthly cadence? Check out, you guessed it, This Month in Spring!
- The next Cloud Foundry Java buildpack seamlessly integrates with the Google Cloud Stackdriver service.
- Redis Client Lettuce has just released 4.4.6.Final and 5.0.5.RELEASE.
- This is a great post by two of the best in the biz, Matt Raible and Simon Maple, in this post on the 10 excellent ways to secure your Spring Boot application!
- Thanks, Liberty IT for having me in Dublin, Ireland and Belfast, North Ireland!
