Summary

In this chapter, we have learned that:

  • Maven provides an easy way to set up a Spring Data JPA project
  • We can configure the application context of our application by using programmatic configuration if we use Spring Framework 3.0 or newer versions
  • If we use Spring Framework 3.1 in a Servlet 3.0 environment, we can configure our web application without web.xml
  • Spring Data JPA simplifies the creation of custom repositories because it can automatically create concrete implementations of our repository interfaces

Building a CRUD application is a good start but it does not help us create real-life applications. In the next chapter, we will address this issue and describe how we can create database queries with Spring Data JPA.
