Previous versions of CobiGen are able to generate code for REST services only. Now it is possible to generate the code for SOAP services as well. There are two use cases available in CobiGen:
SOAP without nested data
SOAP nested data
The "nested data" use case is when there are 3 or more entities which are interrelated with each other. CobiGen will generate code which will return the nested data. Currently CobiGen services return ETO classes, CobiGen has been enhanced as to return CTO classes (ETO + relationship).
Apart from the SOAP code generation, the capability to express nested relationships have been added to the existing ReST code generator as well.
Micro services module (Spring Cloud/Netflix OSS)
To make it easier for devonfw users to design and develop applications based on microservices, this release provides a series of archetypes and resources based on Spring Cloud Netflix to automate the creation and configuration of microservices.
New documentation ind de devonfw Guide contains all the details to start creating microservices with devonfw
Spring Integration Module
Based on the Java Message Service (JMS) and Spring Integration, the devonfw Integration module provides a communication system (sender/subscriber) out-of-the-box with simple channels (only to send and read messages), request and reply channels (to send messages and responses) and request & reply asynchronously channels.
