Spring Cloud Bus

Spring Cloud Bus links nodes of a distributed system with a lightweight message broker. This can then be used to broadcast state changes (e.g. configuration changes) or other management instructions. The only implementation currently is with an AMQP broker as the transport, but the same basic feature set (and some more depending on the transport) is on the roadmap for other transports.

Quick Start


The recommended way to get started using spring-cloud-bus in your project is with a dependency management system – the snippet below can be copied and pasted into your build. Need help? See our getting started guides on building with Maven and Gradle.

As long as Spring Cloud Bus AMQP and RabbitMQ are on the classpath any Spring Boot application will try to contact a RabbitMQ server on localhost:5672 (the default value of spring.rabbitmq.addresses):

public class Application {

  public String home() {
    return "Hello World";

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    SpringApplication.run(Application.class, args);
