Pro Spring Boot is your authoritative hands-on practical guide for increasing your Spring Framework-based enterprise Java and cloud application productivity while decreasing development time using the Spring Boot productivity suite of tools. It's a no, non-sense guide with case studies of increasing complexity throughout the book. This book is written by Felipe Gutierrez, a Spring expert consultant who works with Pivotal, the company behind the popular Spring Framework.

Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring-based applications that you can almost "just run". The goal is to allow you to get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration. Spring Boot provides a radically faster and widely accessible getting started experience for all Spring development and provides a range of non-functional features that are common to large classes of projects (e.g. embedded servers, security, metrics, health checks, externalized configuration); and with absolutely no code generation nor requirements for XML configurations.

After you read and use this book, you'll be able to more quickly and most productively develop complex Spring applications and even microservices - out of the box - with minimal fuss on things like configurations. This book will let you fully leverage the Spring Boot productivity suite of tools and how to apply them through the use of a few case studies as well.
