Core Spring   

Year Granted: 2012
Institute: VMWare University


Core Spring is the four-day flagship Spring Framework training. In this training, students build a Spring-powered Java application that demonstrates the Spring Framework and other Spring technologies like Spring AOP and Spring Security in an intensely productive, hands-on setting.

Completion of this training entitles each student to receive a free voucher to schedule an exam at a Pearson VUE Center to become a Spring Certified Professional.

Core Spring is the perfect training if:

  • You are interested in learning all about developing java applications with Spring
  • You have an upcoming project and need to learn Spring quickly
  • You like to become Spring Certified to improve your career opportunities

At the end of the training, you should have an understanding of Spring and associated technologies and be able to do the following:

  • Use the Spring Framework to develop Java applications
  • Use dependency injection to set up and configure applications
  • Test Spring-based applications
  • Set up Spring configuration using XML, annotations, and Java configuration
  • Use Hibernate and JDBC with Spring to access relational databases
  • Use Spring support for transactions
  • Use aspect-oriented programming (AOP) to add behavior to objects
  • Develop a basic Web application with Spring MVC
  • Use Spring Security to secure Web applications
  • Use Spring with RMI, HttpInvoker, and JMS for remote communication
  • Add management with the JMX API
  • Intended Audience:
