How do you or your organization use this solution?
Please share with us so that your peers can learn from your experiences.
I see 2 fundamental use cases:
1. Application Development -- Web using Spring MVC -- Flux
2. Product Development -- From writing Application Servers to Domain-Specific CRMs -- In fact products like Mule Anypoint Platform are built around Spring Core.
That means pretty much anything you can think of :)
I have 12 developers using Spring Boot in my organization. There are currently two teams in my company: one for the web version, another for the desktop version.
We are using this solution for various in-house applications and products.
We primarily use the solution for building applications.
We are using the latest version of Java Spring Boot. We can just start with the application within a day. When we start developing we can just start up the application development immediately and work for like four or five hours. We are using it for logistics companies and will be logging thousands of users. Companies of three thousand to four thousand users are what we are using it for.
My primary use case is to develop APIs used by single-page applications. It's almost exclusively for web applications and sometimes for communication between micro services, meaning two Spring Boot apps talking to each other. I develop API and the processes, using open API to define before developing them. With Spring Boot we generate the code and we serve the API's to this single-page application or other micro services. I use it almost every day. It's open source, so we don't have any partnership with them, we're a customer. I'm a software engineer.
I primarily rely on Spring Boot as the core microservices framework, used for creating myriad solutions for health care and for the financial services industries. Environments change, depending on client commitments and budgets, but Spring Boot remains as the successful nexus for all development. I have used it for both SQL and NoSQL solutions, including both caching and non-caching environments. With over 20 Spring modules to select for possible augmentation of the basic Spring Boot platform, there is nearly always a solution available. In cases, where some additional, narrow functionality is still lacking, many existing solutions can be integrated into the Spring Boot Java framework, even if that functionality is not part of an official Spring Boot add-on module.
I'm the CEO of our company and a user of Spring Boot. I use the product on a daily basis for business applications. It's great because it simplifies development. Together with MyBatis, they make a beautiful pair for Java development. I'll be developing with Spring Boot in the future.
