Spring Boot makes it easy to create Spring-powered, production-grade applications and services with absolute minimum fuss. It takes an opinionated view of the Spring platform so that new and existing users can quickly get to the bits they need. You can use Spring Boot to create stand-alone Java applications that can be started using “java -jar” or more traditional WAR deployments. It also provides a command line tool that runs spring scripts.
This webinar demonstrates how Spring Boot can take you from zero to Spring with minimal fuss. It looks at how you can rapidly prototype Spring applications using Groovy and how Spring Configuration in Java applications can be radically simpler. It shows how you can embed tomcat into your applications and turn a few lines of Java into a production ready, executable jar that is less the 8 Mb.
