Building RESTful Web Services with Spring 5

Video Description

Find out the implementation of REST architecture to build resilient software in Java with the help of the Spring 5.0 framework.

About This Video

  • Follow best practices and explore techniques such as clustering and caching to achieve a reactive, scalable web service.
  • Leverage the Spring Framework to quickly implement RESTful endpoints.
  • Learn to implement a client library for a RESTful web service using the Spring Framework along with the new front end framework.

In Detail

REST is an architectural style that tackles the challenges of building scalable web services. In today's connected world, APIs have taken a central role on the web. APIs provide the fabric through which systems interact, and REST has become synonymous with APIs.

The depth, breadth, and ease of use of Spring makes it one of the most attractive frameworks in the Java ecosystem. Marrying the two technologies is, therefore, a very natural choice. This course takes you through the design of RESTful web services and leverages the Spring Framework to implement these services.

It also brings the power of the latest Spring 5.0 release, working with MVC built-in as well as the front end framework. It then goes beyond the use of Spring to explores approaches to tackle resilience, security, and scalability concerns. Finally, the course ends by taking you through building a Java client for your RESTful web service.
