Spring Boot is a lightweight framework that provides a set of tools to create production-grade applications and services. Spring Boot 2.0 Projects is a comprehensive project-based guide for those who are new to Spring, that will get you up to speed with building real-world projects. Complete with clear step-by-step instructions, these easy-to-follow tutorials demonstrate best practices and key insights into building efficient applications with Spring Boot.
The book starts off by teaching you how to develop a web application using Spring Boot, followed by giving you an understanding of creating a Spring Boot-based simple blog management system that uses Elasticsearch as the data store. Next, you’ll build a RESTful web services application using Kotlin and the Spring WebFlux framework - a new framework that enables you to create reactive applications in a functional way. Toward the last few chapters, you will build a taxi-hailing API with reactive microservices using Spring Boot, in addition to developing a Twitter clone with the help of a Spring Boot backend. To build on your knowledge further, you’ll also learn how to construct an asynchronous email formatter.
By the end of this book, you’ll have a firm foundation in Spring programming and understand how to build powerful, engaging applications in Java using the Spring Boot framework.
