Spring Boot

featuring Spring Data JPA, Security, MVC and REST
  • How to use Spring Boot to speed up the initialization of your development, and how to increase productivity (dramatically).
  • We build a full website using SpringMVC, Spring Data JPA and Spring Security.
  • A follow on module is available showing how to send and receive messages, plus how to build microservices using Spring Boot.
  • Part of our Spring Training series.


The course will be working with Spring Core, Spring MVC, Spring Security and Spring REST. We will be assuming you are familiar with these topics, the course will focus on applying these concepts within Boot. Spring Boot depends upon Maven or Gradle, so we will expect that you are familiar with at least Maven, and that you are able to use it from Eclipse (with the plugin).

Contents - The course is 2.5 hours long and is roughly equivalent to a full day's live training
