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 

  • Spring configuration using Java, Annotations and XML
  • Aspect oriented programming with Spring
  • Testing Spring applications
  • Data Access - JDBC, JPA and Spring Data
  • Using Spring for Transaction Management
  • Building Web Applications with Spring MVC
  • Spring Boot - introductory and advanced topics
  • Implementing REST with Spring MVC and RestTemplate
  • Spring Security
  • Microservices with Spring Cloud


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.
