Fast Track to Spring 4.2 (TT3329)
In this course, you will learn what the Spring Framework is in terms of today's systems and architectures, and how to use Spring in conjunction with other technologies and frameworks. This course includes complete coverage of all new features in Spring 4.2.
The Spring framework is an application framework that provides a lightweight container that supports the creation of simple-to-complex components in a non-invasive fashion. Spring's flexibility and transparency is congruent and supportive of incremental development and testing. The framework's structure supports the layering of functionality such as persistence, transactions, view-oriented frameworks, and enterprise systems and capabilities.
This course targets Spring 4.2, which includes full support for Java 8 and JEE 7 (earlier versions of Java and JEE continue to be supported). Spring supports the use of lambda expressions and method references in many of its APIs.
Spring makes JEE development easier. Spring simplifies common tasks and encourages good design based on programming to interfaces. Spring makes your application easier to configure and reduces the need for many JEE design patterns. Spring puts the OO design back into your JEE application, and it integrates nicely with many view technologies and the new features of HTML5.
Note: As a programming class, this course provides multiple challenging labs for you to work through during the class. This workshop is about 50 percent hands-on lab and 50 percent lecture. Throughout the course, you will be led through a series of progressively advanced topics, where each topic consists of lecture, group discussion, comprehensive hands-on lab exercises, and lab review. Multiple detailed lab exercises are laced throughout the course, designed to reinforce fundamental skills and concepts learned in the lessons. At the end of each lesson, developers will be tested with a set of review questions to ensure that he/she fully understands that topic.
