Breakout Session

Bootiful Spring Boot 3.x

Josh Long, Spring Developer Advocate, VMware

Spring Framework 6 and Spring Boot 3 are here, which means new baselines and possibilities. Spring Framework implies a Java 17 and Jakarta EE baseline, and offers new support for building GraalVM-native images and a compile-time component model in the new Spring AOT engine. It also features a new observability layer, declarative HTTP and RSocket clients, preliminary Project Loom and coordinated restore at checkpoint (CRaC) support, ProblemDetail support, and much more. Developer productivity is second to none with first-class support for Testcontainers, Docker Compose, and live reloads. Spring makes idiomatic use of the latest Kotlin features, such as coroutines and extension functions. Join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman) to explore next-gen Spring together.
