Introduction to Spring Web Flow

Course Summary

The Introduction to Spring Web Flow training course is designed to demonstrate the creation of simple and complex web applications using the Spring Web Flow framework.

The course begins with a review of core Spring Framework concepts required to use Spring Web Flow within an application. It then transitions into an in-depth examination of the key concepts, components, configurations, best-practices, and gotchas when adopting the Web Flow. The course concludes by introducing advanced techniques including custom convertors, validators, sub-flows, and life cycles.

Prerequisites: This course assumes developers are already familiar with both the Spring Framework and Java web development.
