You can use ACM SDK to get and listen to configurations.

Available ACM SDKs include:

  • ACM Java Native SDK: A Java native SDK for listening to and updating ACM configurations.
  • Spring Cloud ACM: Java SDK that supports the Spring Cloud Config interface specification. This SDK won't be maintained any more. Therefore, we recommend that you use spring-cloud-starter-alibaba-nacos-config from Nacos instead.
  • ACM Node.js SDK: A Node.js native SDK for listening to and updating ACM configurations.
  • ACM C++ SDK: A C++ native SDK for listening to and updating ACM configurations.
  • ACM Python (open-source): A Python native SDK for listening to and updating ACM configurations.
  • ACM PHP (open-source): A PHP native SDK for listening to ACM configurations.
  • Nacos Client: A Java native SDK for listening to and updating ACM configurations.

The functions and features of ACM SDKs are summarized in the following table:

  • * Multiple IP LB method is a LoadBalance method based on multiple server IP addresses returned by ACM SDK from the address server, which boosts performance and achieves high availability.
  • ** With local cache backup, ACM SDK can read from the local cache backup file saved when getting configurations last time, which avoids client downtime.
  • *** spring-cloud-starter-acm won't be maintained any more. Therefore, we recommend that you use spring-cloud-starter-alibaba-nacos-config from Nacos instead.
