Building out custom well formed REST services can be time consuming and complex. In this course, Spring Data REST: Getting Started, you’ll learn to create REST services off of your Spring Data JPA layer with minimal effort. First, you’ll explore exactly what this framework provides out of the box and how to get it up and running with a real world based project. Next, you’ll discover how the repositories that you already have in your Spring Data JPA project can be enhanced to automatically provide REST resource based services. Finally, you’ll learn how to customize and utilize this framework to meet your specific application needs. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of proper REST services with Spring Data which will help you jumpstart a RESTful API for your Spring application.
Course Overview Do you need to build out on API layer for your application, and does it need to be well thought out and RESTful? Would you like your API built automatically for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Spring Data REST just might be exactly what you're looking for. Hello, everyone. My name is Dan Bunker, and welcome to my course on Spring Data REST. With Spring Data REST, you can automatically generate a RESTful API layer, customize your return payloads to suit your needs, handle posts, delete, and puts easily, and deal with paging, sorting, validation, and hypermedia with your API. By the end of this course, you'll understand exactly what a RESTful API should look like and how to easily set one up in your Spring JPA‑based application. To get the most out of this course, you should be familiar with Java, JPA, and some basic Spring and Spring Boot fundamentals before beginning this course. Please join me as we dive into RESTful APIs and Spring Data REST at Pluralsight. You won't look at an API layer the same again.
