Let's jump right in: 



  • An intro to server-client communication in the RSocket protocol
  • A preview of Spring Boot support for GraalVM Native Images
  • And several new releases for Spring Security and Boot

Datadog has been firing on all cylinders lately, so it's back in this installment of the Java Weekly. 
The platform is simply a great way to monitor your system, starting from a simple webapp all the way to a highly distributed system.
It's actually quite interesting to see how they can handle these widely different systems intelligently - scaling up from a single-server deployment to literally hundreds of servers. 

Definitely give their trial a go - and spend the few minutes it takes to get set up.
You can actually get a surprising amount of data with the basic setup before you have to set up anything manually. 

Cheers and stay safe,
