Spring Cloud Data Flow is a cloud-native programming and operating model for composable data microservices on a structured platform. With Spring Cloud Data Flow, developers can create and orchestrate data pipelines for common use cases such as data ingest, real-time analytics, and data import/export.
The Spring Cloud Data Flow architecture consists of a server that deploys Streams. A future release will also support deploying Tasks. Streams are defined using a DSL or visually through the browser based designer UI. Streams are based on the Spring Cloud Stream programming model. The sections below describe more information about creating your own custom Streams.
