Getting started with Spring boot 2.0

A few weeks back, I went to Devoxx, an annual Java conference located in Belgium. One of the few hypes there was Spring framework 5 and the upcoming release of Spring boot 2.0. With this tutorial I’ll show you how you can get started Spring boot 2.0.

Configuration as a microservice

We’ve already done quite a lot to get a working pokédex with Angular 2. However, there are still two things that bother me: If the API request takes a while, the user wont notice it. The page will just be blank When we open the application, we get a simple “Loading…” message

Writing your first component with Angular 2

First of all we have the findAll() function to return multiple pokémons (only basic info though) and secondly, we have the findOne() function which will return more detailed information about a single pokémon. Both of these are using the […]
