About the technology
With Spring Boot, it’s a snap to create standalone Spring applications that require minimal manual setup. Spring Boot directly embeds a server like Tomcat or Jetty into your project and preconfigures core Spring settings, third-party libraries, security, and other key elements. It’s a big framework, with lots of powerful features. This book provides a rich collection of techniques to help you get the most out of Spring Boot.
