Spring Session MongoDB

Spring Session MongoDB provides a solution for Spring Session in a MongoDB data store.

  • Accessing a session from any environment (i.e. web, messaging infrastructure, etc)

  • In a web environment

    • Support for clustering in a vendor neutral way

    • Pluggable strategy for determining the session id

    • Easily keep the HttpSession alive when a WebSocket is active

Project Status

We go to great lengths to ensure smooth upgrades. We also seek to make your upgrade on major versions of Java can be as smooth as possible.

  • Spring Session for MongoDB 2.2.x runs on Spring Framework 5.2.

  • Spring Session for MongoDB 2.1.x runs on Spring Framework 5.1.

Both of these have support for JDK 11.

Spring Session for MongoDB 2.0 runs on Spring Framework 5.0 and is NOT supported on JDK 11 despite our pipelines testing against it. The extra tests are designed to give you a smooth upgrade path. If you are going into production on JDK 11, you should be using at least Spring Session for MongoDB 2.1.

JDK 13 is Java’s latest version and is unstable. We are testing against it to catch issues early on, but don’t support it directly on any version of Spring Session for MongoDB.

Building Spring Session MongoDB

  1. Run ./mvnw clean package

This will generate the artifact.

You can also import the project into your IDE.

Making a release

  1. Create a new release (on the main branch).

    % ci/ <release version> <next snapshot version>
  2. With the release tagged, push the tagged version to the release branch.

    % git checkout -b release
    % git reset --hard <tag>
    % git push -f origin release
You can chain the previous set of commands together using &&.

The pipeline will build and release the "release" branch. It will also build a new a new snapshot and stage it on artifactory.

The pipeline will pick up the next tag and release it. It will also build a new snapshot and stage it on artifactory.

Running CI tasks locally

Since the pipeline uses Docker, it’s easy to:

  • Debug what went wrong on your local machine.

  • Test out a a tweak to your script before sending it out.

  • Experiment against a new image before submitting your pull request.

All of these use cases are great reasons to essentially run what Jenkins does on your local machine.

To do this you must have Docker installed on your machine.
  1. docker run -it --mount type=bind,source="$(pwd)",target=/spring-session-data-mongodb-github adoptopenjdk/openjdk8:latest /bin/bash

    This will launch the Docker image and mount your source code at spring-session-data-mongodb-github.

  2. cd spring-session-data-mongodb-github

    Next, run the script from inside the container:

  3. PROFILE=none ci/

Since the container is binding to your source, you can make edits from your IDE and continue to run build jobs.

If you need to test the script, then do this:

  1. docker run -it --mount type=bind,source="$(pwd)",target=/spring-session-data-mongodb-github --mount type=bind,source="/tmp/spring-session-data-mongodb-artifactory",target=/spring-session-data-mongodb-artifactory adoptopenjdk/openjdk8:latest /bin/bash

    This will launch the Docker image and mount your source code at spring-session-data-mongodb-github and the temporary artifactory output directory at spring-session-data-mongodb-artifactory.

    Next, run the script from inside the container:

  2. ci/

Important will attempt to push to Artifactory. If you don’t supply credentials, it will fail.
Docker containers can eat up disk space fast! From time to time, run docker system prune to clean out old images.
