Learn Spring Boot with online courses and programs
What is Spring Boot?
Spring Boot is an open-source, Java-based tool that lets you develop production-ready, highly maintainable, and standalone applications and microservices. Some of its key features and benefits include:
Minimal setup and configuration
Ability to integrate with other frameworks and libraries
Embedded web server to help deployment
Large and active community support
Modular and highly customizable architecture
Built-in support for type conversion, validation, internationalization, and more
Ability to create applications without any dependence on an external web server and launch them with the Run command
Besides these features, Spring Boot automatically allots packages for you and sets the default values. However, with the help of Spring Initializr (a web-based tool), you can define your project needs in a simple web form and choose from Spring Boot Starters (multiple starter dependencies). Spring Boot offers more than 50 Spring Starters and many more external starters.Footnote 1
