This course enables the experienced Java developer to use the Spring application framework to manage objects in a lightweight, inversion-of-control container, and to build persistence components and application tiers using Spring's support for relational databases and transaction control.

Spring's core module gives the developer declarative control over object creation and assembly; this is useful for any tier of any Java application, so we study it in some depth to begin the course. Then students build persistence code using the Spring DAO and ORM modules, using both JDBC and JPA, with Hibernate as the provider. We study both programmatic and declarative transaction control. The course concludes with a chapter on Spring's testing framework, with a focus on test-managed transactions.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the scope, purpose, and architecture of Spring
  • Use Spring application contexts to declare application components, rather than hard-coding their states and lifecycles
  • Use dependency injection to further control object relationships from outside the Java code base
  • Use annotations to take advantage of Spring post-processors for automated bean instantiation and wiring
  • Connect business objects to persistent stores using Spring's DAO and ORM modules
  • Simplify JDBC code using Spring templates
  • Integrate JPA entities and DAOs into Spring applications
  • Control transactions using Spring, either programmatically or declaratively
  • Develop effective unit tests using Spring's test framework
