Infinispan Spring Boot Starter released with Spring Boot 2.2.4.RELEASE

Dear Infinispan and Spring Boot users,

We are pleased to announce the release of Infinispan Spring Boot  2.1.8.Final and 2.2.0.Final.

2.1.8.Final uses Infinispan 9.4.17.Final and Spring Boot 2.2.2.RELEASE

Configuring Marshalling with Infinispan 10.x

Infinispan 10.x servers have some significant changes to marshalling that impact Spring Boot users.

The default Marshaller for Infinispan 10.x is ProtoStream, which uses Protocol Buffers to provide extensible, language and platform neutral serialization.

Unfortunately ProtoStream does not currently work with Infinispan Spring Cache and Session support. As a result, Spring users in Remote Client/Server Mode must use the Java Serialization Marshaller and add classes to a Java serialization whitelist.

Add the following configuration properties:


The property specifies the classes, or packages, that Java serialization can marshall. Separate multiple class names with a comma (,).

Note that, in previous versions, JBoss Marshaller was the default for Infinispan. Spring users can also use JBoss Marshalling, but it is deprecated as of Infinispan 10.x.

Get it, Use it, Ask us!
