There is no doubt that having Spring Framework skills on your résumé will make you a more employable Java developer.
Spring developers are in high demand and are paid handsomely. However, the framework is huge. That’s because it consists of lots of modules and projects. Learning it can take you months. You will often find that a Java Spring tutorial or training course will focus on parts of the framework that don’t get used that much.
What Spring technologies should you focus on initially?
Many Java spring courses teach you all sorts of things you really don’t need to know when you are starting out.
If you are just starting out with Spring, the areas that will have the biggest impact for you are Spring Core, Spring MVC and Spring Boot 2.
Spring Core is an application framework and inversion of control (ioc) container for the java platform.
Spring MVC, or Spring Web MVC to be more precise is a web framework and provides Model View Controller architecture. It’s built around a DispatcherServlet.
Spring Boot 2.0 is a way to create standalone Spring based Applications that you can just run – so it simplifies the entire process of creating and deploying Spring apps – It can embed databases and do all sorts of configuration automatically.
These three areas are a great place to start – just having these skills will take you a long way. Of course, there is more to learn, but these are the areas to focus on initially.
Why this course is perfect if you want to learn Spring 5 fast.
Firstly, here are some comments about the course.
"Great and deep understanding of Spring in this course. Perfect speed, new technologies, and explanation of every detail. " - Arkadiusz Siry
"Amazing.Very good instructions" - Emmanuel Akono Sarsah

A Java Spring tutorial needs to teach you the core technologies listed above as an absolute minimum. This course will get you up to speed with those technologies.
Having good knowledge of a Java template engine that works with the Spring 5 framework, and a detailed understanding of the build tools (for building single and multi module projects) is highly desirable.
We’ve added comprehensive training for Thymeleaf 4 as well as Maven 3 in the course to give you those skills.
This content is ready for you to get started with today. We’ve been working hard on some final training that we believe will round out a Spring developers skills perfectly.
The final content we are in the process of adding to the course now is for Gradle (another build tool), Spring Data (provides access to persistence stores), JPA (Java Persistence Layer), Hibernate (Object Relational Mapping tool) and database versioning (like source control but for databases).
This content will be provided to existing students in the course for free in the coming weeks.
Bonus Free Spring training
Our original course was released with Spring 4 which was the current version at the time – we created a course around that, using the Eclipse editor.
Unlike other Udemy Spring courses, we completely upgraded the content to Spring 5 – We re-recorded what is effectively a brand new course for Spring 5 using JetBrains award winning IntelliJ IDEA and released if free to existing students.
This older content is still available for you to access after you have been through the brand new training – It’s still useful as some companies still use Spring 4 technology.
What skills do you need to take the course?
This course is for anyone who wants to get into Spring framework programming. We assume you have never used Spring previously.
Any Java Enterprise edition (Java EE) technology requires you to know at least some Java programming. That’s because Java EE is built on top of the Java Standard Edition (Java SE). That’s the regular Java language.
The Spring Framework is built on top of Java EE, and thus you need to have some basic Java programming skills to be able to go through this course.
If you’ve been through at least some of the Java Masterclass on Udemy (created by one of the instructors in this course) or similar Java training, then you will have no problem going through the course.
Who are the instructors?
Your instructors are Tim Buchalka and Goran Lochert. Both have many years of commercial programming experience using the technologies taught in the course.
Tim has been working with Java for 18 years, and Goran is both Spring certified and Oracle Java certified.
They have a number of very successful Udemy courses, including Tim’s Java Masterclass and Goran’s Oracle Java Certification course.
Here’s what’s important. There’re lot of people teaching Spring who are not developers. We’re developers with many years’ experience with JEE and Spring, who also teach Spring.
And you guessed it. Learning Spring the “wrong way” is not only a wasted opportunity, it may harm your career in the long run. If you don’t follow industry best practices when creating Spring projects, you not going to fit in well with a future employer.
Because you are working with career professional developers, you will learn Spring 5 the right way in this course.
What if you have questions?
As if this course wasn’t complete enough, we offer full support, answering any questions you have 7 days a week (whereas many instructors answer just once per week, or not at all).
This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With our hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.
That’s just one reason why Tim was voted top 10 in the Udemy instructor awards (out of a whopping 18,000 instructors), and quickly became a top-rated, bestselling instructor on the Udemy site.
Student Quotes: “I loved the course because the instructor was really good and explained everything + the support team is really quick in answering our questions the course is worth buying, and i would suggest people to buy it.” –Hamza Shahid
There’s no risk either!
This course comes with a full 30 day money-back guarantee. Meaning if you are not completely satisfied with the course or your progress, simply let Tim or J-P know and they will refund you 100%, every last penny no questions asked.
You either end up with Spring framework skills, go on to develop great programs and potentially make an awesome career for yourself, or you try the course and simply get all your money back if you don’t like it…
You literally can’t lose.
