Recently, a friend of mine tweeted out a challenge:
"Name a framework in which you can create a new app expose a REST service with a database and deploy it to the cloud in five minutes. #grails"
The moment I spotted that tweet, I responded, "Spring Boot + Spring Data REST"! I realized he was kindly pointing out how easy it is to build RESTful services with Grails (a great framework). But I couldn't resist showing the ease and power of Spring Data REST.
To prove my point, I couldn't resisting crafting a screencast. In the linked screencast, I show how über easy Spring has made it to pick the parts for your app from http://start.spring.io, define your domain, and then export them as a hypermedia-driven RESTful service.
