SE Radio 381: Josh Long on Spring Boot

Josh Long, developer advocate at Pivotal, discusses Spring Boot with host Simon Crossley, and the features that it provides to efficiently develop production ready enterprise web applications. With 18 years of experience the Spring Framework is certainly mature, and Spring Boot is an attempt to package many of the standard patterns of enterprise development to make best practices easy to adopt. Josh talks about working with different databases, and developing and testing microservices using Spring Boot. He also covers the many useful features that Spring Boot applications have available once deployed in a production environment. He talks a little about the underlying mechanisms that Spring Boot uses to provide developer productivity (no code generation), and how teams can customize Spring Boot to suit their needs.
