This week, we released version 1.6 of Stratospheric – From Zero to Production with Spring Boot and AWS.
The main reason behind this release is that we somehow entirely missed talking about an important topic: Bootstrapping an AWS environment for the AWS CDK.
You may have already run into this issue when trying to deploy one of our AWS CDK stacks:
Has the environment been bootstrapped? Please run 'cdk bootstrap'
We’ve now added a dedicated section on the AWS environment bootstrapping and explained the why & how.
In short, with the revision v1.6 of Stratospheric, we changed the following:
- added a new section on bootstrapping an AWS environment (thanks to a – now anonymous – GitHub user for reporting this)
- added the required policies for the technical GitHub Actions user to the appendix
- improved the CI/CD chapter to help with more easily locating the corresponding GitHub Actions files (thanks to stevenschewenke for reporting this)
- migrated to PostgreSQL 12.9
