  • Interesting overview, but...

    by Richard Richter,

    I just can't find all the funny stuff really funny. Year 2000 maybe was, but the attitude that we can hear like "if you're not using Spring Boot you're kinda clueless" is just annoying (probably partially offending, but I don't care). I like spring, but this kind of boasting is rather counter-productive. Is this guy trained by Josh Long or what? :-)

    In any case, you probably have to invest heavily into learning the stuff, Spring Security is big (and now even bigger) and while defaults are OK, they will probably not be enough. And not understanding when you start customizing it just gets back on you. There's a lot of work there indeed, we're using it, but be prepared for "no pain, no gain".
