Infinispan Spring Boot Starter 2.1.5.Final and 1.0.7.Final are out!

Dear Infinispan and Spring Boot users,

We have just released Infinispan Spring Boot Starter 2.1.5.Final and 1.0.7.Final.

2.1.5.Final

* * 2.1.5.Final is using Infinispan 9.4.11.Final and Spring-Boot 2.1.4.RELEASE.

Important Spring-Boot bug fix

Previous versions of Spring-Boot 2.1.x contained a bug related to the multi-release jars. Infinispan contains multi-release jars, in consequence, we could not run our applications using java -jar with Java 11 (Java 8 worked fine). For additional explanations, read here. Spring-Boot team has fixed this bug and released the correction in Spring-Boot 2.1.4.RELEASE, along with many other features and bug fixes, so consider upgrading soon.

Statistics on Client/Server mode and Actuator

Statistics configuration in client/server mode for the client evolved in the latest Infinispan versions. As a remainder, to activate actuator statistics in client/server mode : "Configure 'infinispan.remote.statistics=true' in the", application.properties or - Configure ''infinispan.client.hotrod.statistics=true" in the hotrod-client.properties or - Configure by code, for example:

@Bean public InfinispanRemoteConfigurer infinispanRemoteConfigurer() \{     return () → new ConfigurationBuilder().statistics().enable().build(); }

===== JMX

If you want to use Infinispan and JMX, for example on Client/Server mode, set the 'jmx' property 'true' as explained above with the 'statistics' property. However, you might get a javax.management.InstanceAlreadyExistsException because both Infinispan and Spring will try to register the MXBean.

The correction will land on the next starter release. If you need to avoid this error today, you can tell Spring-Boot not to register the bean with the following code (Thanks Stéphane Nicoll for the tip!):

Testcontainers

This version includes an integration test using Testcontainers, JUnit5 and the Infinispan Server. Grab a look here if you are curious.

1.0.7.Final

* * 1.0.7.Final upgrades to 1.5.19.RELEASE and Infinispan 9.4.11.Final.
