First RC for Spring Integration 2.0
The first release candidate of Spring Integration 2.0 has been announced. This release builds on Spring version 3.0.5, and SpEL expressions can be used in a range of elements of the Spring Integration core, including the transformer, router, filter, and splitter. Spring Integration 1.0 comes with its own implementation of a TaskScheduler, in addition to both interval and cron-based Trigger implementations. Users also have the option of providing a custom implementation of Spring's Trigger interface, and using the 'trigger' attribute as a reference instead. The outbound HTTP adapters delegate to Spring's RestTemplate when it comes to executing the HTTP request and handling its response, and a header is added to each Message to enable Message History within the Application Context.
