How to become a Spring Boot developer?

Spring Boot is a Java-based open-source framework for developing microservices. Created by Pivotal Team, Spring Boot is used to create stand-alone and production-ready spring apps. It is a great platform for Java developers who want to create a standalone, production-ready spring application that can be used right away. You may get started with just a few configurations without having to set up a full Spring configuration.

Spring Boot enables developers to construct applications that are ready to use right away. By embedding a web server such as Tomcat or Netty within your program during the initialization phase, you can construct independent applications that run without relying on an external web server. As a result, you may use the Run command to launch your application on any platform.

What is the scope in Spring Boot development?

The Spring Boot Framework is a well-known framework for creating web applications with minimal coding. With the help of annotation settings and default code, it allows for speedier web creation. It creates a class for you based on that criterion. In the development phase of a web application, the Spring Boot framework is used for all layers of implementation. Furthermore, because it is a lightweight framework that uses little resources, a Spring Boot developed application will have little impact on your hardware.

Spring Boot is one of the most popular web application frameworks. In comparison to other frameworks for developers, Spring Boot configuration is relatively straightforward. Spring Boot provides the Spring framework's capabilities, such as dependency injection, AOP, security, and web workflow, with little configuration difficulty thanks to the Spring Boot starter parent. Spring Boot is typically used with AngularJS, which uses a RestAPI method.

Frameworks exist to support, guide and level up app development without the manual overhead. They are shaped as prewritten code. SpringBoot is expected to be among the most popular development platforms in the future. According to a study conducted by JetBrains, the Spring Boot's popularity has risen to 61–63 percent, with the Spring's one grabbing 30 percent of the global market share.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a Spring Boot developer?

Spring Boot makes it simple for the developer to construct self-contained, production-ready Spring-based applications that can be "simply run." It scans the application classes' classpath and configured beans, assesses the missing components, and adds them to the project structure, all without the programmer's interaction. This allows developers to concentrate on the application's business logic rather than the project infrastructure, which is handled by Spring Boot. Spring Boot, for example, detects the project's individual beans automatically. There's no need to set them up manually because Tomcat is used as the web application server by default. The primary responsibilities in a Spring Boot developer job are –

  • Using the Spring Boot framework to create backend services/APIs for web applications.
  • Create and maintain code that is efficient, reusable, and dependable.
  • Ensure that the developed application has the best possible performance, quality, and responsiveness.
  • Identify bottlenecks and defects, then come up with strategies to mitigate and fix them.
  • Assist peer developers and management in assuring high-quality business delivery.
  • Provide timely information to the business and internal team, ensuring a stress-free experience for all parties.
  • Junit unit testing, Selenium automated functional testing, or any other equivalent framework.
  • Understanding of how to use RESTful JSON services.
  • Make sure that requirements are translated into back-end code.
  • It's a benefit if you're familiar with the 12 factor app design process and microservices architecture.
  • Create and maintain relevant application documentation while sharing information with other members of the team.
  • Maintain application code to address customer complaints and assure bug resolution in a timely manner.
  • Work successfully as part of a worldwide team.

How to become a Spring Boot developer?

Spring Boot is one of the most important Java frameworks to learn, but as an advanced Java developer, you must also learn all of the technologies that make up the ecosystem, such as containers, cloud, testing Spring Boot applications, advanced Spring Boot features like Actuator, creating Microservices with Spring Boot, and deploying Spring Boot applications on cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure, and GCP. There are some prerequisites to learning Spring. First and foremost, everyone interested in learning Spring must have prior programming knowledge in Java. Experience with Core Java, Advanced Java, JDBC, Servlets, JSPs, and SQL is required. To secure the best paying opportunities, professionals must also invest time to craft an optimized Spring Boot developer resume.

On prominent online platforms, there are various advanced Spring Boot courses for seasoned Java engineers. If you want to take your Spring Boot skills to the next level and become a true full-stack developer that understands Spring Boot projects from start to finish, take up these courses.

Skills required to become a Spring Boot developer

The first step is to begin studying the core abilities that will enable you to obtain a high-paying Spring Boot developer job. Let's see what you need to know.

1. Container, Dependency, and IOC

This subject focuses on the fundamentals of spring containers, as well as the primary benefits of IOC and Dependency Injection, as well as how Spring Framework implements them. What are dependency injection and IOC? These are some of the questions you'll need to know the answers to. How does Spring MVC go about implementing them? In Spring, what is application Context? What makes BeanFactory and Applicationcontext different? What is component scanning, and how does it work? How does Spring scan for components? In an integration test, how will you establish an Application Context? What's the best approach to shut off an application context? Is SpringBoot able to help you with this?

2. SpringBean Lifecycle

he lifecycle of a SpringBean is critical, and the developer should understand how they are created, maintained, and destroyed in a Spring container. To build a production-ready spring application, you'll need to be well-versed in this.

3. Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP)

Another key notion that drives the spring framework is Aspect-Oriented Programming or AOP. It's all about streamlining boilerplate and centralising cross-cutting issues so you can concentrate on business logic. While this is a tedious and difficult subject to learn, you must understand key AOP concepts such as Advice, PointCut, and how AOP works in general.

4. Spring MVC

This is, without a doubt, the most crucial skill to learn. Spring MVC is responsible for the framework's rise to prominence and its victory over Struts, an older type of framework for constructing Java applications. Spring MVC is a Java web application development framework that implements the MVC paradigm.

5. Spring Data JPA

While Spring Data is not a JPA implementation, it does provide a high-level abstraction to make interacting with databases easier. To design an enterprise Spring bot application with databases, you'll need to be familiar with Spring Data JPA.

6. Spring Security

This is another crucial topic for Java and SpringBoot developers alike. You must utilise Spring Security to secure your application, implement authentication and authorization, and so on, whether you are using plain Spring or SpringBoot. It also supports JWT and OAuth2, and to get a good SpringBoot developer job, you'll need a thorough understanding of Spring Boot ideas and API.

7. Spring Boot Testing

Testing is another area to which many Java and Spring developers give insufficient attention, despite its importance. Developers that can write unit tests, construct automated tests, and follow DevOps and SDLC best practises are presently in high demand. That's why understanding how to use unit tests and integration tests to test your spring and Java applications is critical.

8. Spring Cloud

This is a relatively new issue, but it is incredibly significant given the prominence of Cloud Computing and Microservices. Spring Cloud, along with Quarkus and Micronauts, is a leading framework in the Cloud Native environment, where the majority of new Java development is taking place.

9. Spring Boot Actuator

Another key feature of Spring Boot is the actuator, and understanding the Spring Boot Actuator is critical for production support and monitoring. Actuator can be used to expose endpoints and interact with your Spring Boot application while it is running. The purpose of Spring Boot Actuator is to support and monitor your production-ready application.
