Customer Relationship Manager web application is used by the managers to store, retrieve and modify their customer information.
Spring is one of the best frameworks for backend development while working on Java since it uses the MVC design pattern. For the front end side, HTML and CSS has been used here. The purpose of Spring framework is to allow designers and developers to focus on building an unique feature for their web based projects rather than re-inventing the wheel by using the very basics of Java. You will be learning the Spring framework over the course of building this Customer Relationship web application.
After completion of the project, you will learn how to use CRUD operations, MVC design pattern and Object-relational mapping framework (by connecting the backend web app to a database) majorly. You will also be familiarised with HTML, CSS languages by then.
Some of the advantages of web applications include:
- Accessible from any Internet-enabled computer.
- Usable with different operating systems and browser applications.
- Easier to roll out program updates since only software on the server needs to be updated.
- Centralized storage on the server means fewer security concerns about local storage.
You can also use Spring Boot as it needs minimum configurations without the need for an entire Spring configuration setup. There are other frameworks as well like Node JS, Angular JS etc. Finally, which technology to choose totally depends on what applications we want to build and also on developer requirements. If you're going to develop an app that depends on I/O, then go to Node.js. But if you want to build a super-fast application (eCommerce platforms, IoT, etc.) with a crazy amount of computing, then go to Spring boot framework.
The main context of this project is to learn building a web based CRUD application using Spring MVC.
