SOFABoot 2.5.x upgrade

Update time: 2019-06-21

# Upgrade SOFABoot from 2.3.x/2.4.x to 2.5.x SOFABoot 2.3.x/2.4.x is developed based on Spring Boot 1.4.2.RELEASE, SOFABoot 2.5.x is developed based on Spring Boot 1.5.x. When upgrading SOFABoot 2.3.x/2.4.x to SOFABoot 2.5.x, we should pay special attention to the differences between the Spring Boot 1.5.x upgrade and the Spring Boot 1.4.x upgrade.

Renamed Spring Boot Starters

  • spring-boot-starter-ws –> spring-boot-starter-web-services
  • spring-boot-starter-redis –> spring-boot-starter-data-redis

Endpoint Security Control

Spring Boot 1.5.x has security control over all sensitive endpoints by default, that is, endpoints such as /beans and /dump, which were previously accessible by default in version 1.4.x, are not accessible in version 1.5.x. To access such endpoints, we need to configure Spring Boot as follows: >

Only /health, /info, and /docs are accessible by default in version 1.5.x. Please refer to official description for details: + endpoints + Accessing sensitive endpoints

ApplicationEvent Change

ApplicationStartedEvent in 1.4.x has been renamed ApplicationStartingEvent in Spring Boot 1.5.x. The version 1.5.x remains forward compatible. Note that the ApplicationStartedEvent event has a completely different meaning in version 2.x.

** Users who have upgraded the SOFABoot to the version 2.5.x are strongly advised to change ApplicationStartedEvent to ApplicationStartingEvent to avoid compatibility issues when upgrading SOFABoot to the version 3.0.x in the future.**

Property renaming

  • server.max-http-post-size –> server.tomcat.max-http-post-size
  • is removed
