We are pleased to announce that Spring for Apache Hadoop version 2.0 has reached the Release Candidate stage. The latest release is 2.0.0.RC2. The spring-yarn framework makes it easier for you to develop Spring based applications that can be deployed to run on Hadoop v2 using YARN! Thanks to Spring for Apache Hadoop — you can now run Boot applications, Spring XD applications, and much more on YARN now! Do things with YARN application development you simply can’t do anywhere else in open source, today.
