Core Spring Course Overview

The Spring Framework is the leading Java EE solution for enterprise software.

The course comprises sessions dealing with Dependency Injection (DI); Aspect Oriented Programming, (AOP); Spring Web including MVC, REST, and WebSocket; Spring Data including JDBC, ORM, and Transaction Management; Spring Security; and Spring Boot. It also includes an introduction to Reactive Programming, Spring WebFlux, and Spring Cloud.

Exercises and examples are used throughout the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Obtaining Spring Beans using DI
  • Implementing cross-cutting concerns using AOP
  • Building a Spring MVC web app
  • Building a REST API with Spring MVC
  • Building a WebSocket service
  • Using a JDBC Template
  • Integrating a Spring app with Hibernate and JPA
  • Transaction Management
  • User authentication
  • URL and method-level authorization
  • Building a simple Spring Boot app

Who will the Course Benefit?

The Core Spring course will benefit Java developers who are new to Spring and want to develop large and complex enterprise-level applications.

Course Objectives

This course aims to provide the delegate with the knowledge to be able to develop (or contribute to the development of) a Spring web app which exposes a RESTful API and that both reads and writes data to/from persistent storage. The web app should be secure insofar as it authenticates users, and restricts access. The delegate should also be aware of Spring Boot, Reactive Programming, Spring WebFlux, and Spring Cloud.


Delegates attending this course should be competent Java developers able to build simple applications that exploit APIs including Collections, IO, and JDBC. Delegates would also benefit from having some previous experience with Servlets and JSP (or equivalent technology).

This knowledge can be obtained by attendance on the pre-requisite Java Programming 2 and Developing Applications with Java EE courses.
