In this article, we will demonstrate constructor binding using the merchant account configuration in this article. Constructor binding enables […]Continue reading

Introduction In this article, we explained why we should externalise our application configuration data. We also provided configuration examples that use various methods supported by Spring Boot. Within these methods was the Java bean properties binding but it was less detailed. Therefore in this article, we are going to give more details about using the […]Continue reading

You define your repository interface by extending one of the Spring Data JPA Repository interfaces.  At runtime, Spring Data JPA will create your repository implementations with the common CRUD methods. You can then perform CRUD operations without writing […]Continue reading

Introduction In this article, we explained how to configure more than one data source in a Spring Boot Application. The source repository for the article uses CircleCI for CI builds. To build the source code, we needed to add a MySQL database for the JUnit integration tests. In this article, we will explain how to […]Continue reading
