VMware - Spring Boot: Developer

This course offers experience with Spring Boot and its major features, including auto-configuration, Actuator, Spring Boot testing framework and more. Features include the ability to create stand-alone Spring applications, embed Tomcat, Jetty, or Undertow directly (no need to deploy WAR files), provide opinionated 'starter' dependencies to simplify your build configuration, automatically configure Spring and 3rd party libraries whenever possible, provide production-ready features such as metrics, health checks, and externalized configuration, precluding the need for code generation and XML configuration. On completion, participants will have a foundation for creating enterprise and cloud-ready applications.

Please note that this course is a subset of the material in our 4-day Spring: Core Training course - there is no need to take both courses. This course is recommended if you have a good working knowledge of Spring Basics (see Prerequisites) but are new to Spring Boot.
