I’ve just published an article at the Spring blog about the creation of a new project called Spring Cloud Pipelines.


Why a new project? Cause we’ve been all doing repetitive work. Check out this post where I write about creation of a deployment pipeline. Every company does it and wastes money and resource on it. In Pivotal our goal is to give developers tools they need to deliver features as fast as possible.

Spring Cloud Pipelines gives you an opinionated deployment pipeline. You can use it straight away, you can modify it. Do whatever you please :)


The repo is setup with a demo for Concourse CI and Jenkins. Read the docs how to set it up for each of those tools. The deployment is done via Cloud Foundry. For the sake of demo we’re using PCF Dev.


I’ve just published an article at the Spring blog about Spring Cloud Contract 1.0.0.RELEASE is available.

I’m really happy that the project is GA. Even though as the Accurest project we had already done a GA release, it really feels that a lot of effort was put in order to release the GA version under the Pivotal’s Spring Cloud branding. Let’s look at some numbers:

That’s quite a lot of work! But there we are, with a library that has already been battle-proven on production by many companies, even before being GA as Spring Cloud Contract.

Currently at the Spring Team we’re polishing our libraries for the upcoming final release of the Brixton train. It should happen soon :) Until then I’m spending a lot of my after work, free time on Accurest and Stub Runner.

Today’s post will be about the new stuff that you will be able to profit from in the upcoming 1.1.0 release of Accurest. Also you can profit from most of these features in the 1.1.0.M3 release.

I’ll just quickly go through the features but note that you can read about all of them in more depth in our documentation .

After a lot of sleepless nights I’ve finally migrated the Accurest Docs from Github’s Wiki to Asciidoctor. With that change the vast majority of our snippets is taken from the tests. Also thanks to that change it will be much easier to keep the docs up to date since the documentation lives together with the code.

Quite frankly recently when I didn’t code Spring Cloud Sleuth I did a lot around Accurest and messaging so stay tuned! For sure there will be a new post about Consumer Driven Contracts and Messaging.
