Overview of this book

Spring Framework has become the most popular framework for Java development. It not only simplifies software development but also improves developer productivity. This book covers effective ways to develop robust applications in Java using Spring. The course is up made of three modules, each one having a take-away relating to building end-to-end java applications. The first module takes the approach of learning Spring frameworks by building applications.You will learn to build APIs and integrate them with popular fraemworks suh as AngularJS, Spring WebFlux, and Spring Data. You will also learn to build microservices using Spring's support for Kotlin. You will learn about the Reactive paradigm in the Spring architecture using Project Reactor. In the second module, after getting hands-on with Spring, you will learn about the most popular tool in the Spring ecosystem-Spring Boot. You will learn to build applications with Spring Boot, bundle them, and deploy them on the cloud. After learning to build applications with Spring Boot, you will be able to use various tests that are an important part of application development. We also cover the important developer tools such as AMQP messaging, websockets, security, and more. This will give you a good functional understanding of scalable development in the Spring ecosystem with Spring Boot. In the third and final module, you will tackle the most important challenges in Java application development with Spring Boot using practical recipes. Including recipes for testing, deployment, monitoring, and securing your applications. This module will also address the functional and technical requirements for building enterprise applications. By the end of the course you will be comfortable with using Spring and Spring Boot to develop Java applications and will have mastered the intricacies of production-grade applications.

Understanding Redis

Redis is an open source in-memory data structure. Redis fits well for a database cache and is not common, but it can be used as a message broker using the publish-subscribe feature, it can be useful to decouple applications.

There are some interesting features supported by Redis such as transactions, atomic operations, and support for time-to-live keys. Time-to-live is useful for giving a time for the key, the eviction strategy is always hard to implement, and Redis has a built-in solution for us.

Data types

There are a lot of supported data types by Redis. The most common ones are strings, hashes, lists, and sorted sets. We will understand each of these a little bit because it is important to help us to choose the correct data type for our use case.


Strings are the more basic data type of Redis. The string value can be at max 512 MB in length. We can store it as a JSON in the value of the key, or maybe as an image as well because the Redis is binary safe.
