Developers with a good understanding of Java. No experience with Spring Framework necessary.

What our students say:

Both instructors know a lot, and are good in bringing the knowledge to the participants.


This course is highly interactive, intensive and hands-on, led by one of our experienced trainers. The focus of this course is not simply to explaining Spring features and how to use them, but also on the fundamental architectural issues. It is important to know how to use certain parts of a framework, but it is even more important to be able to decide when to use them.

Training objectives 

  • Use the Spring Framework to develop Java applications.
  • Use dependency injection to set up and configure applications.
  • Test Spring-based applications.
  • Configure Spring applications using Java configuration, annotations, or XML.
  • Use Spring Data JPA and JDBC to rapidly implement relational database access.
  • Use Spring support for transactions.
  • Use aspect-oriented programming (AOP) to declaratively add behavior to applications.
  • Develop a basic Web application with Spring MVC.
  • Use Spring Security to secure Web applications.
  • Use Spring to easily build REST web services.

Audience & Prerequisites

We assume that participants have a good understanding of the core Java APIs, as well as a basic knowledge of general concepts like JavaEE APIs such as JTA and the Servlet API. As we cover object-relational mapping technologies (ORM) we also assume basic knowledge of ORM concepts and JPA. The training is hands-on. Developers are expected to bring their own laptop.
