This screencast is designed to teach novice-level Java developers how to efficiently build well structured Java web applications with the Spring model view controller (MVC) module. The MVC module of the Spring framework provides a simple and lightweight web framework that allows developers to address common web application concerns using an established approach. Students will learn how to configure an advanced set of framework components to build predictable and highly maintainable applications that benefit from being constructed using this well documented technology. Participants should be familiar with the basics of the Java programming language and the concepts underlying the Spring Framework.
