Anyone who writes or maintains Java code using Spring Framework Version 4 will appreciate this overview of the fundamentals that drive this powerful application framework. As Java expert and trainer Ken Kousen puts it, the modern framework “is not your parent’s framework." This tutorial offers insights helpful to newcomers and seasoned developers alike--even those transitioning to Spring Boot--and provides a step-by-step walkthrough of how to:

  • Understand the Spring approach to application development
  • Use the JavaConfig technique to its fullest
  • Build applications with Java-based dependency injection
  • Access data sources, using the JDBC template
  • Work with ORM tools and Spring
  • Manage declarative and programmatic transactions
  • Learn about Aspect Oriented Programming
  • Test applications with TestContext
  • Discover how to use Java SE 8 in Spring
  • Simplify development with Spring Boot

Ken Kousen trains, consults, and mentors developers in all areas related to Java, specializing in Android, Spring, Hibernate/JPA, Groovy, and Grails. He is the author of Making Java Groovy (Manning) and the upcoming Gradle Recipes for Android (O'Reilly). He holds BS degrees from M.I.T., an MS and a Ph.D. from Princeton, and an MS in Computer Science from R.P.I.

Comments about oreilly Spring Framework Essentials:

I really enjoyed this course. Ken is a fantastic instructor, his explanations and coding examples make even complex material easy to understand.

Most of the lectures are around 10 min. long, which I think is just perfect, and make it easier to digest.

This is an excellent course for Java developers who are new to Spring or who want a better understanding of the fundamentals.

I also recommend taking notes during the lectures.

      The content is very much updated, well explained with useful references.

      I appreciate the use of IntelliJ Idea and Gradle as primary tools, it is usel to me.

      Hope to see soon a follow up on Spring Boot and possibly Spring Data and MVC.
