Introduction to Spring Boot | Spring Boot Quick Start is a hands-on Spring training course geared for experienced Java developers who need to understand what the Spring Boot is in terms of today's systems and architectures, and how to use Spring in conjunction with other technologies and frameworks. This leading-edge course provides added coverage of Spring's Aspect-Oriented Programming and the use of Spring Boot. Students will gain hands-on experience working with Spring, using Maven for project and dependancy management, and, optionally, a test-driven approach (using JUnit) to the labs in the course. The Spring framework is an application framework that provides a lightweight container that supports the creation of simple-to-complex components in a non-invasive fashion. Spring's flexibility and transparency is congruent and supportive of incremental development and testing.
