Updating Spring Framework

Post by RS123 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 4:24 pm

Would updating Spring Framework to the newer version be risky and break the edge server? Are there plans to upddate the Spring Framework?
I have some code for a custom Rifidi app, but it uses Spring Framework 4.3.7.

There is a slight problem with updating spring framework -- Spring stopped supporting OSGI and dropped support for the "org.springframework.osgi.*" plugins after 3.2.5. While adding OSGI metadata to the spring plugins is possible, the Springframework OSGI plugins were never updated with the rest of spring. Currently I'm working on modernization of our tools and build system, and included in that (along with many other things) will be upgrading Spring and dropping the need for the Springframework OSGI bundles.
