This Week in Spring - April 10th, 2018
Hi Spring fans! This week I’m in Atlanta, Indianapolis and Cincinnati! I’ll be speaking at the Atlanta, GA Spring Meetup on Tuesday the 10th where I’ll be looking about all things new, bootiful and cloud-native including reactive programming, Spring Web Flux, Spring Cloud Finchley, Spring Cloud Function and Project Riff . Then it’s off to Indianapolis where I’ll be doing the same talk on Thursday the 12th.
What a crazy week it’s been! There’s so much to get to this week. I want to call out, first, that there are some CVEs out there and if you haven’t already, you should be updating urgently and accordingly. Read on for more information.
Secondly, our amazing Renaissance nerd and mad scientist Andy Wilkinson takes top spot for most announcements this week. What an amazing person and prolific engineer! Week after week, year after year, he’s tirelessly working on stuff that underpins what you see reflected on this blog, but it’s rarer to see him blog so often. I just wanted to point him out because he’s made your lives better at some point and you probably didn’t even realize it :)
Anyway, without further ado! Let’s get to it!

In this first
for the year (!!) we look at Spring Cloud Stream Kafka Streams. Apache Kafka Streams supports Spark-like stream processing in your JVM-based code. You manage the clustering, and Kafka manages the rest. You don’t need to deploy a dedicated Spark cluster to get the benefits for stream processing with Apache Kafka Streams. Spring Cloud Stream Kafka Streams makes it simple to, in typical, concise Spring Cloud Stream fashion, configure Spring Cloud Streams and Apache Kafka Streams. In this video, we look at some of the details for stream processing including
KTables, joining, serialization and de-serialization, and more.
