Three years ago I wrote this tutorial. Things have changed in the Java and Spring landscape, so let’s see how much easier it is now to write a simple Spring webapplication.
In the next couple of weeks I’m going to develop a small idea sharing/voting application, using several common concepts in web development. First of all, I’m going to write and secure a REST API with Spring Security.
If you’re a web developer like me, then you probably know that writing tests for an application means that you have to test various parts of the application. Modern web architectures usually contain the necessary front-end logic, a REST back-end and some data persistence. Having to test your application means that you want to cover […]
The past couple of weeks I wrote several kind of tests for my Spring Boot application, we started of with some integration tests for our REST service, and today I’m writing the last part of the series with some functional/integration tests for the application using Selenium.
In my previous article I explained how you could rapidly create a completely working, responsive CRUD application with about 150 lines of code. That’s obviously nice, but Spring Boot also makes it easy to write integration tests for your application, because it’s easy to setup a running test application with a few annotations, so then […]
Recently I wrote an article about writing modern webapps with Spring Data REST and AngularJS. It’s not that hard to write, but it can be done even easier with Spring Boot as pointed out in the comments by Greg Turnquist. I already planned on trying out Spring Boot after some amazing articles about Spring Boot […]
