Re: Removing support for v1 service brokers


Dieu Cao <dcao@...>
 

We've found NATS to be unstable under certain conditions, temporary network
interruptions or network instability, around the client reconnection logic.
We've seen that it could take anywhere from a few seconds to half an hour
to reconnect properly. We spent a fair amount of time investigating ways to
improve the reconnection logic and have made some improvements but believe
that it's best to work towards not having this dependency.
You can find more about this in the stories in this epic [1].

Mike, in addition to removing the NATS dependency, this will remove the
burden on the team, almost a weekly fight, in terms of maintaining
backwards compatibility for the v1 broker spec any time we work on adding
functionality to the service broker api.
I'll work with the team in the next couple of weeks on specific stories and
I'll link to it here.

Thanks for the announcement.

To be clear is this announcement to cease support for the old v1 brokers
or is this to eliminate support for the v1 api in the CC? Does the v1 CC
code depend on NATS? None of my custom v1 brokers depend on NATS.

Hello all,

We plan to remove support for v1 service brokers in about 3 months, in a
cf-release following 12/31/2015.
We are working towards removing CF's dependency on NATS and the v1
service brokers are still dependent on NATS.
Please let me know if you have questions/concerns about this timeline.

I'll be working on verifying a set of steps that you can find here [1]
that document how to migrate your service broker from v1 to v2 and what is
required in order to persist user data and will get that posted to the
service broker api docs officially.
