EP22 – What’s New in Spring 5 with John Thompson

Spring 5

Spring Framework 5 is Coming in Late July 2017

Today I’m joined by John Thompson to talk about the newest release of the Spring Framework.

Spring hasn’t seen an update since 2013, so version 5 will be released to a bit of fanfare.

The biggest updates to Spring 5.0 will be that it’s making use of Java 8, which means that your application will need to adopt Java 8 in order to use Spring 5.

The other big talking point with Spring 5.0 is its new “reactive and non-blocking web framework”.

With reactive and non-blocking programming you’re going to be writing code in a more functional style that will be more “performant” under load.

Learn all about the cool new features by listening to the podcast above.
