Java is often said to be too complicated and to take too long to build simple applications. Nonetheless, Java provides a stable platform with a very mature ecosystem around it, which makes it a wonderful option for developing robust software. The Spring Framework, one of the many powerful frameworks in the Java ecosystem, comes with a collection of programming and configuration models with a goal to simplify the development of performant and testable applications in Java. In this tutorial, we will take the challenge of building a simple application that will act as a database of software developers using Spring Framework and the Java Persistence API JPA. The application follows a standard MVC architecture.
