  • Course Spring Boot Development : Content

    In the course Spring Boot Development you will learn to develop applications and microservices with Spring Boot in a fast and efficient way. The training covers essential features of Spring Boot such as opinionated Spring Boot Starters, embedded servers, automatic configuration, metrics and externalized configuration.

    Spring Intro

    The course starts with an overview of the most important Spring principles such as loading beans in the bean container and dependency injection.

    Spring Boot

    Subsequently it is discussed how predefined configurations in Spring Boot act as a starting point for a Spring Boot application. Other main components of Spring Boot are also discussed, such as the Autoconfigurator, the Actuator and the Command Line Interface (CLI).

    Dependency Injection

    Dependency injection with its associated annotations such as @Component, @Qualifier, @Repository and @Service is treated in detail. The internal workings of dependency injection based on Java Reflection is also explained.

    Application Configuration

    Also part of the course program are the auto configuration options in Spring Boot. Components can be linked with annotations such as @EnableAutoConfiguration if registered in classes annotated with @Configuration.

    Aspect Orientation

    And Aspect Orientation in Spring Boot is discussed as well. Crosscutting concerns in an application such as security or profiling can thus be included in so called aspects without disrupting the main program flow.

    Spring JDBC and Spring Data

    Database access from Spring Boot applications is covered in the modules Spring JDBC and Spring Data. Various Spring templates that help prevent boilerplate code such as jdbcTemplate and MongoTemplate as well as JPA repositories are discussed.

    Spring REST

    Spring Boot is ideally suited to access REST APIs with compact code. The various annotations that are important here, such as @RestController, @ResponseStatus and @JsonView, are treated.

    Spring Extensions

    Finally various Spring extension projects are covered such as Spring Security and Spring Cloud.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
