This Spring Boot 2 Fundamentals course, balances theory and hands-on applications that are focused on practical takeaways. The course will take you through the fundamentals of the Spring Framework. You will then gain an understanding of how to retrieve data using a relational database. Gradually, you will learn how to create browser-based applications. Lastly, you will grasp the concept of RESTful web-services, APIs, and learn how to implement Spring Security.
Spring Boot 2 is the latest incarnation of the Spring Framework, which is a mature, enterprise-grade, and open-source application development framework that provides a flexible and modern alternative to the official Java EE standard. It also provides inversion of control containers for the Java platform.
