More Information
  • Deploy Spring Boot Actuator to debug your Spring Boot application in production
  • Use the Java logging framework, Log4j, to monitor application health and troubleshoot applications
  • Manipulate Boot application log levels to suit the demands of various debugging situations
  • Resolve certain build-related problems that typically occur within Spring Boot applications while working with Maven and Gradle
  • Work with IDE debuggers to troubleshoot runtime errors and exceptions
  • Study exception handling techniques in Spring applications
  • Troubleshoot some common exceptions while working with model-view-controller (MVC) and REpresentational State Transfer (REST) applications powered by Spring Boot

Spring Boot has been a huge help to Java developers over the years, helping them build enterprise-grade applications. However, it’s likely that in your pursuit of building great applications, you may face some roadblocks. This course is designed to provide the tools and techniques you need to debug a Spring Boot application and tackle various other challenges.

You will start off by working with Spring Boot Actuator to debug and troubleshoot your application. Since logs can reveal a whole lot about your application and have been traditionally used to debug various types of software applications, this course will guide you through using the Log4j framework to keep a log of your application’s health and performance as you execute different operations. You’ll also get insights into debugging scenarios when you’re building a Spring Boot application using Maven and Gradle. Further on, you’ll work with debuggers available with popular IDEs to fix some common problems in your application. Toward the concluding parts of this course, you’ll learn the exception handling techniques in Spring applications and understand how to use them to troubleshoot when using Spring Boot.

By the end of this course, you will have worked through a range of troubleshooting techniques to ensure your apps are production-ready.
