In the 2.8 release of Spring Cloud Data Flow the syntax for specifying properties has been simplified.
In the past the syntax for setting a property in composed task runner was as follows:
app.<composed task definition name>.<app label>.property. We have removed the
requirement that you have to specify the
Composed Task Definition Name, so now to set a property
for a composed task looks like
app.<app label>.property. The old property format is still supported,
but it is encouraged to use the new format.
NOTE: You can read more about setting composed task properties here.
In 2.8 there have been some modifications to the Spring Cloud Data Flow schema for Microsoft SQL Server.
TASK_SEQ sequence table has been replaced with a
TASK_SEQ sequence. This
migration should occur when Spring Cloud Data Flow 2.8.x is run for the first time
on the database instance.
