It’s out! My webinar, Debug and Maintain Your Spring Boot App, is now available to watch right here. Learn how to:

  • Figure out what Spring Boot has done, so you can tweak things as needed.
  • Discover property override settings, and not be done in by out-of-date docs.
  • Merge metrics and commands as needed for DevOps support.

I hope you enjoy this meme-tastic, code-filled webinar I hosted.

If you’re interested, the code for it can be found at The basis of this code is Chapter 3 of Learning Spring Boot. If you’re interested, you can sign up today for my technical newsletter and hear up-to-date news including alerts about Learning Spring Boot.

    Regarding “learning spring boot”:
    – Creating a functional environment is one of the hardest things in software development. Unfortunately you have not started with this topic in your book. Yes, I understand that it gets old the fastest, but on the other hand some of your readers will be in the dilemma where I am: Your code doesn’t work and I don’t know how to fix the dev environment to get it working.
    – A bit same is with utilizing source code, preferably through a fork in GitHub: Especially Eclipse is frustrating in that it has several different mechanisms how to do it, some of them don’t work at all, some are counter-intuitive and some require correct plugins to work. I probably know that part already, but you could really afford to have one section of these basics and tell one of the good ways to do it.
    – Also when ever I read a development book, I ALWAYS do it the same way: I either copy-paste or use from the sources the correct place and compile it. And only if that works, I start to read the content: what does it do & how was it created the way it was. But you work the other way around: you approach the content first and getting it compiled is very much secondary. When the person has struggles with the environment or compilation, your approach is frustrating as ….

    I don’t know how many attempt I am doing now and none of them have worked but they have had different issues. I have followed different instructions around the web to create them, but so far I have always found instructions that were either too old, too short (didn’t explain far enough for getting everything to work) or whatever.
    I have tried five versions of IDE:
    – Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 9 beta (Eclipse)
    – Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 8 (Eclipse)
    – Eclipse Mars
    – Eclipse Luna
    – Groovy/Grail Tool Suite (Eclipse)
    Several AS:
    – Tomcat 8
    – Tomcat 7
    – Wildfly 8.2
    – Wildfly some other version
    – Jetty
    – Gradle 2.4 and 2.7
    – Maven 1?, Maven 2, Maven 3?
    – Lots of settings

    As you can guess quantity doesn’t improve quality, but I don’t want to spend days on an issue, so if I don’t solve it fast enough, I try something else.
