Spring Cloud Gateway and gRPC

Starting from version 3.1.0 as part of the Spring Cloud 2021.0.0 (aka Jubilee) release train, Spring Cloud Gateway included support for gRPC and HTTP/2.

We will introduce the basic concepts behind gRPC and how to configure it with two examples:

  • One that showcases how Spring Cloud Gateway can transparently re-route gRPC traffic without needing to know the proto definition and without having to modify our existing gRPC servers.

  • Another that showcases how we can create a custom filter in Spring Cloud Gateway to transform a JSON payload to a gRPC message.
