Part 1 : Web application development using AngularJS, Spring Boot and Maven – Setup

I have been using Spring Framework and Maven for my enterprise application development for long time now. I am a big fan of Spring Framework but a typical Maven and Spring based application requires a fair amount XML configuration to get started.

Along comes the new Spring initiative called Spring Boot that aims at accelerating application development. As per Spring Boot [1] website, it takes an opinionated view of building production-ready Spring applications. Spring Boot favors convention over configuration and is designed to get you up and running as quickly as possible. You can use it to create stand-alone Java applications that can be started using ‘java -jar’ or more traditional WAR deployments.Spring Boot offers many benefits

This post describes the steps I followed to get started with Maven and Spring Boot development.

Goal for this post

Setup the project

Production ready – Support for Monitoring and Application Management

For more information take a look at this reference guide [8]

Sum it up

You have a fully functional web application that uses Spring Boot framework. The application doesn’t do much yet but I plan to use this as the starting point for my AngularJS based application.
