Spring Boot – what it is and how to get started

JAXenter Editorial Team

Spring Boot, the new convention-over-configuration centric framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring’s flexibility with conventional, common sense defaults to make application development not just fly, but pleasant! Spring developer advocate Josh Long takes a look at what Spring Boot is, why it is turning heads, why you should consider it for your next application and how to get started.

Spring Boot aims to make address the common functional and non-functional requirements that gate quickly moving to production. In his talk, Josh Long shows his audience how to take-off with the framework and what you should pay attention to.
