Core Spring is the four-day flagship Spring Framework training. In this course, students build a Spring-powered Java application that demonstrates the Spring Framework and other Spring technologies like Spring AOP and Spring Security in an intensely productive, hands-on setting.

Completion of this training entitles you to receive a free voucher to schedule an exam at a Pearson VUE Center to become a Spring Certified Professional.

  • Use the Spring Framework to develop Java applications
  • Use dependency injection to set up and configure applications
  • Test Spring-based applications
  • Set up Spring configuration using XML, annotations, and Java configuration
  • Use JPA/Hibernate and JDBC with Spring to access relational databases
  • Use Spring support for transactions
  • Use aspect-oriented programming (AOP) to add behavior to objects
  • Develop a basic Web application with Spring MVC
  • Use Spring Security to secure Web applications
  • Use Spring with RMI, HttpInvoker, and JMS for remote communication
  • Add management with the JMX API
    Intended Audience:  
  • Developers
  • Architects
  • Experience with developing applications using Java

    7  Aspect-Oriented Programming
    •  What problems does AOP solve?
    •  Differences between Spring AOP and AspectJ
    •  Defining pointcut expressions
    •  Implementing an advice: @Around, @Before, @After, and so on

    8  Data Access and JDBC with Spring
    •  How Spring integrates with existing data access technologies
    •  DataAccessException hierarchy

    •   namespace
    •  Introduction to Spring MVC
    •  Using @Controller and @RequestMapping annotations

    12  Spring Security
    •  What problems does Spring Security solve?
    •  Configuring authentication and intercepting URLs
