5:45-7:15: Essential Spring Data
Data persistence is an essential component of almost every application. But where should the data go? A relational database? A document database? A graph database? Every kind of database has its own unique API, requiring you to pivot your skills depending on what kind of data you’re working with.
Spring Data makes it easy to work with various databases by offering a programming model that is consistent, regardless of which type of database you’re working with. And regardless of the database you’re dealing with, you will find that Spring Data eliminates a lot of boilerplate code.
In this session, you’ll learn how to use Spring Data to rapidly develop repositories for a variety of database types, including relational (JPA and JDBC), document (Mongo), and others (Cassandra, Neo4j, Redis, etc). Time-permitting, we’ll also explore a few advanced techniques for working with Spring Data, such as data projections, reactive repositories, and exposing data APIs automatically with Spring Data REST.
