Java springboot


  • Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can “just run”.
  • Provide a radically faster and widely accessible getting started experience for all Spring development.
  • Be opinionated out of the box, but get out of the way quickly as requirements start to diverge from the defaults.
  • No requirement for XML configuration.

Why SpringBoot?

  • Spring framework has been around for over a decade (de facto standard framework for developing java applications)
  • Spring was light weight in terms of component code but heavy weight in terms of configuration
  • Anytime spent on writing configuration is time spent not writing application logic.
  • Project dependency is a thankless job.
  • Working with traditional spring configuration is much like ordering a pizza and explicitly specifying all of the toppings.
  • Reduce boilerplate coding (if 80% of projects use this, why not automate it?)
