How to Create a RESTful App in Five Minutes or Less

Modernize your application architectures with microservices and APIs with best practices from this free virtual summit series. Brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

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.

Please enjoy!
