Develop diverse real-life projects including most aspects of Spring Boot
- Run production-grade based applications using the Spring WebFlux framework
- Learn to develop high performance, asynchronous applications with Spring Boot
- Create robust microservice-based applications with Kotlin using Spring Boot
Spring is one of the best tools available on the market for developing web, enterprise, and cloud-ready software. The goal of Spring Boot is to provide a set of tools for quickly building Spring applications that are easy to configure, and that make it easy to create and run production-grade Spring-based applications. Spring Boot 2.0 Projects will get you acquainted with important features of the latest version of this application-building tool and will cover basic, as well as advanced topics.
The book starts off by teaching you how to create a web application using Spring Boot, followed by creating a Spring Boot-based simple blog management system that uses Elasticsearch as the data store. As you make your way through the chapters, you’ll build a RESTful web services application using Kotlin and the Spring WebFlux framework. Spring WebFlux is a new framework that helps in creating a reactive application in a functional way. Toward the end of the book, you will build a taxi-hailing API with reactive microservices using Spring Boot and a Twitter clone with a Spring Boot backend. Finally, you’ll learn how to build an asynchronous email formatter.
