Spring Framework And Dependency Injection For Beginners

Spring Framework Getting Started And Dependency Injection Fundamentals Tutorial For Real World Application Development

Created by Sanjay Patel - Software Architect And Developer


Students: 95962, Price: Free

If you are new to Spring Framework, or you know Spring but are new to Java configuration, take this as your first course.

In this step-by-step video tutorial, we are first going to learn how to quickly create a new Spring application, and then we are going to dive into the fundamentals of the dependency injection (IoC) features of Spring using Java and annotation based configuration, which is going to be extremely useful to you when taking any other course on Spring Framework.

Dependency Injection in Spring Framework is very vast, and a common real world developer needs to be readily knowing only a handful of commonly useful features. We are going to cover that handful of useful things here, to get you started developing real world applications fast. Later, when you need, you can always refer to Spring's documentation for the less commonly used features.

That said, here we are going to cover many key features useful in real world development, like Spring profiles, externalizing configuration etc., which are important for real world development, but you will not find those covered in many other tutorials.

Also, as a bonus, I am going to show you how simple it is to send SMTP mails in Spring Boot.

If you are new to Spring or Java configuration, I would highly recommend that before taking any other Spring course, you should take this course first.

You should be knowing Java to be able to follow this course. Knowledge of web development will help, because in some examples we have used a bit of Spring MVC, but is not needed.

This course also serves as the Module I of our full course "Spring Framework Rapid Tutorial For Real World Development."

I'll also show you how to use Spring to persist data into a database, and Spring MVC to show content from the database on a webpage.

Throughout the course you will have access to the code examples being presented in the tutorials. This is code you can build and run on your computer. You will be able to study the working code examples. Whenever possible, I will go into real world use cases and examples from my years of experience as a Spring Source consultant. I've seen a lot of good code, and bad code over the years. Through my experience with Spring, I will show you good code and poor programming practices to avoid.

By the time we reach the end of this course, you will be able to build a functioning Spring Web Application.

In this course, you will learn about:

  • Dependency Injection and Inversion of Control (IoC) in the Spring Framework.

  • Spring Boot

  • Using Spring Initializr

  • Using Maven to build Spring Projects

  • How to use JUnit and Mockito to test Spring

Created by Bushan Sirgur - Java Developer, Blogger, Youtuber


Students: 33537, Price: Free

Welcome to the Full Stack Development with Angular and Spring MVC. For those of you, who don't know Angular and Spring MVC, i would like give a quick introduction about these two technologies.

Angular is one of the most popular front end Javascript framework for building web application, on the other hand, Spring MVC is also one of most popular Java framework for building Java Web Applications, using which we can build industry standard Java/J2EE Enterprise Applications.

So in this course we are taking an advantage of these two technologies and we are going to build a web application. The application that we are going to build is not a simple Hello World application, we are going to build an End-to-End Database Application, we are going to perform all the CRUD operations, like CREATE, READ, UPDATE, DELETE.

What are we going to build in this course ?

In this course we are going to build a Book Management System, where the user can,

  • CREATE a book

  • READ a book

  • UPDATE a book

  • DELETE a book

How do we start this course?

  • We will begin this course by Creating a REST API which is a BOOK API and we are going to build this API using Spring MVC and we will make use of Hibernate as our ORM. The BOOK API provide a bunch of service end points which we are going to make HTTP calls on those service end points using Angular

I am super excited to teach you this course. I will see you inside the course.

Basic knowledge

  • Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript

  • Basic knowledge of Core Java

  • Basic knowledge of Spring MVC

  • Basic knowledge of Hibernate

  • Basic knwoledge of RESTful web services

What you will learn

  • So by the end of this course, you will have a better knowledge of Angular and Spring MVC. You will have a better understanding of how to integrate Angular and Spring MVC. You are able to create your own API and making a HTTP calls using Angular

Master Spring Microservices with Spring Boot & Spring Cloud!

Master Spring Boot Microservices with Spring Cloud!

Created by Karthikeya T - Educator


Students: 7931, Price: Free

Spring boot microservices is a course on Microservices with Spring clould. Industry is moving towards Microservices, and by far Spring offers the best solution to create cloud ready, enterprise web & mobile microservice applications.

Microservices is basically an architectural style, where the entire application would be split up in to multiple, small, independently deployable units, that are highly scalable, maintainable and testable.

Microservices will allow, very large systems to be built up, from a number of collaborating components. It does this at the process level, what Spring has always done at the component level: This will create loosely coupled processes instead of loosely coupled components.

This course is for beginners, who want to learn Microserives for their next job.

Spring Boot is an open source Java-based framework used to create a microservices. It is used to build stand-alone and production ready spring applications with ease. Spring Boot and Spring cloud will go hand in hand. This course will give you an introduction to Spring Boot and familiarizes you with its basic concepts.

Jhipster: Creating a CMS using Spring + Angular

How to create a CMS using Jhipster version 7, Spring and Angular

Created by Mike Suarez - Jhipster lover and passionate learner!


Students: 445, Price: Free

The goal of this free course is to give you some insight on how to use Jhipster to create a monolithic app, in this case, a CMS. I will explain the basics of Jhipster using the currently latest version 7 that comes with lots of new features that makes, creating an app, a great tool to create your own apps.

As an introductory course I will cover the basics about:

  • How to create a project with Jhipster and launch it.

  • How to create entities using a JDL file.

  • How to do the basic customizations as cascade deletion and control what the user and admin can see in each entity created.

  • How to make some intermediate configuration like modifying DTOs and mappers to suit your case.

You should have some previous knowledge about Spring, Angular, SQL databases (H2) and Graddle, but it is not my intention to get into too much detail as there is plenty of material where you could find advanced technical information. I will try to give some insight into where to find some information in case you want to use other technologies like React, Vue, NoSQL databases and where to find some help in case you get stuck in your way.

After the course you should be able to create the basic entities for your own project.
