Over 100 hands-on recipes to build Spring web applications easily and efficiently
This book is for you if you have some experience with Java and web development (not necessarily in Java) and want to become proficient quickly with Spring.
Spring is the most popular Java web framework. It makes it easy to efficiently build modular and testable web applications by using the Model-View-Controller paradigm and dependency injection.
Using this practical guide, you'll learn how to build a full-featured web application step-by-step, but with high efficiency using the latest improvements in Spring 4. Starting with the installation of Java, Maven, and Tomcat, you'll go on to create a basic MVC web application. You'll then add a database, forms, and user authentication, and learn how to handle mobile devices and integrate with Facebook and Twitter. Next, you will be introduced to unit testing, web services, and aspect-oriented programming.
