The general availability of Spring Framework 6.0 kicked off a new generation of the framework for 2023 and beyond: with a JDK 17 and Jakarta EE 9 baseline, featuring AOT processing and a general revision of the Spring web stack. Spring Framework 6.1 embraces JDK 21 and Project CRaC now and follows up with a general revision of Spring's data binding and validation facilities. This talk discusses the overall themes for the Spring Framework 6 generation, with an emphasis on the range of scale-to-zero options for common Spring web applications.
There is a lot going on around Java infrastructure in 2023: lightweight virtual threads as a production feature (a.k.a. Project Loom), a Checkpoint Restore arrangement for faster bootstrapping on the HotSpot JVM (a.k.a. Project CRaC), and a new GraalVM edition. This session illustrates how Spring Framework 6.1 embraces those latest Java innovations, with current insight into the design decisions as well as several demos. We'll focus on the developer perspective, discussing the impact on the programming model and showing the deployment flexibility.
