Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week, I’m in Paris, France, for the amazing Voxxed Microservices event. This has been quite the show, and I’m grateful for having had the opportunity to attend. Now, as I write this, I’m preparing to go to Beijing, China, for the first leg in Asia of the SpringOne Tour show. I’ll be in China, then Japan, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Los Angeles, Morocco, Seattle, Toronto, and then finally, in mid-December, I’ll return home to San Francisco. We’ve got a ton of things to look at this week, so without further ado, let's get to it!

- This is a nice article on Reactive Programming With Project Reactor!
- Fellow Java Champion, Arun Gupta, has just shared an interesting example on how to build a custom Spring Boot-flavored JRE in Java 9 or — better yet — to reduce the size of containers. This example gets a 490 MB Docker image for a Spring Boot application cut down to 162 MB by creating custom JRE using JDK11. Check it out!
- This is a very cool write-up on how to use JUnit5 and Spring Cloud Contract.
