About this book
Spring in Action, Fifth Edition was written to equip you to build amazing applications using the Spring Framework, Spring Boot, and a variety of ancillary members of the Spring ecosystem. It begins by showing you how to develop web-based, database-backed Java applications with Spring and Spring Boot. It then expands on the essentials by showing how to integrate with other applications, program using reactive types, and then break an application into discrete microservices. Finally, it discusses how to ready an application for deployment.
