You can use any build system you like when building apps with Spring, but the code you need to work with Maven is included here. Or you can build a single executable JAR file that contains all the necessary dependencies, classes, and resources, and run that.
If you’re not familiar with Maven, refer to Building Java Projects with Maven. This makes it easy to ship, version, and deploy the service as an application throughout the development lifecycle, across different environments, and so forth.
You’ll build a simple Spring MVC application that take user input and checks the input using standard validation annotations.
You’ll also see how to display the error message on the screen so the user can re-enter a valid input. You can use any build system you like when building apps with Spring, but the code you need to work with Gradle and Maven is included here. Post Mapping; import org.servlet.config.annotation.
