In this session, we're going to combine the magic of Spring Boot and the magic of Spring Data to yield something even more powerful. You'll see how to quickly build an application's persistence layer, whether it stores data in a RDBMS, Mongo, Neo4j, or several other popular data stores. You'll also see how to create a functioning REST API with nothing more than an interface and a domain type.
Spring Boot dramatically simplifies application development with Spring. But before Spring Boot came along, Spring Data was already making developers' lives easy when it comes to working with data. When combined, Spring Data and Spring Boot can make data persistence the easiest part of your application.
