Spring Framework 6 and Spring Boot 3 are almost here and you know what that means? New
.jars! And also new baselines and new possibilities! Spring Framework implies a Java 17 and Jakarta EE baseline, and offers new support for building GraalVM-native images. It also offers a new observability layer, an amalgamation of some of the work in the Micrometer project and Spring Cloud Sleuth. Spring Boot 3 builds upon all of this, and integrates all of this into our application. Join me, Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman), and we'll look at next-gen Spring.
