  • Use Spring Boot to simplify dependency management and configuration
  • Work with the ORM (Object-Relational Mapping) module to integrate Spring with technologies such as Hibernate or JPA.
  • Use Spring Data to automatically generate JPA-based repository classes
  • Understand and use Spring’s transaction support, including the easy-to-use Java annotation support, as well as the tx/aop XML configuration elements
  • Integrate Spring with Java EE Web applications
  • Build Web applications with Spring MVC, including configuration using Java config and Servlet 3 capabilities
