Spring Boot Review

A great product that simplifies development for business applications

What is our primary use case?

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.

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved by supporting and integrating Hadoop. A year ago Spring Boot announced that they were removing Hadoop support from the product but many software companies work with Hadoop and Cassandra, and I really think that Spring Boot should renew the Hadoop connection. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Spring Boot since 2003 when the framework was created.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a very stable product. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

As a Java program, it's very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't had any issues where I've required technical support. I know there is a blog and many forums where questions can be answered and Spring Boot is discussed. There are somewhere between five and 10 different software forums. 

How was the initial setup?

Setup of the program is very simple, it takes about a minute. 

What other advice do I have?

As a product that is a Java framework, it's better and a lot more simple than other similar frameworks. 

I would rate this product a nine out of 10.
