Course Description

In this course, we will put together a Spring Boot Restful web app and test it. We explore inversion of control through inline and constructor dependency injection and controllers, services, and how to implement persistence and execute queries using Spring Data JPA. We will test the app using the insomnia API client. Also, we emphasize and go through the correct use of the debugger. The IDE we are going to use is Interlay IDEA. Also, we provide the appropriate guidance for utilizing the maven build management tool. Finally, we use version control to commit and push the project to a GitHub repository. First, we will look at how to install Java, maven, and the Intellij IDE in our system. Then we will generate a Spring Boot app with the help of the Spring initializr web app and open it inside Intellij.

After explaining the role of maven and the pom.xml file for the application and how to add dependencies, we will start putting together a project that follows the model view controller architectural paradigm. After we create our first controller class and endpoint controller method and test it, we will create a service class within which we will move any application logic and then implement persistence with Spring Data JPA. Also, we are going to talk about the Lombok and Javax libraries.

Instructor Details

Dimitrios Malonas

Dimitrios Malonas

Hi! My name is Dimitrios Malonas. I have been into programming since the early 2010s.

I have written Clojure, Java, Kotlin, Python, JS, C, and C++ code. Also, I have spent a lot of time learning and utilizing JVM frameworks and specifications, such as Spring and Spring Boot, Micronaut, grails, and Java EE, and JS frameworks such as angular and next.js. In my free time, I like studying machine learning and data analytics. The languages I use for these activities are, naturally, Python and R.

For my learning, I use both text-based and video-based resources. My favorite text-based resource is O'Reilly Media. For video-based education, I have extensively used online course platforms such as Udemy. I have also spent many hours coding on platforms such as Hackerrank, Codility, CodeWars, and others.

As a University student, I did four engineering placements. I did that because my goal was to get as much exposure as possible and start learning what the real world is like after uni. After graduating, I worked as an engineer for several companies and gained valuable programming experience.

My goal as an instructor is to use Occam's razor approach to teach topics by providing only the necessary information, as opposed to overloaded curriculums that are tiring and confusing and also difficult to complete for someone with a busy lifestyle.
