Developer Newsletter: Two easy ways to access data from your Spring application
Attention Spring users! DataStax Astra offers Spring Boot users a fluent REST API to consume Cassandra data. In this new Example of the Week, we show you how to use your Astra database’s REST API with Spring Boot’s RestTemplate. Stay tuned for future examples that use GraphQL and schemaless, document-style JSON APIs! Getting started is fast and easy; Astra accounts require no credit card and are free up to 5GB.
If you prefer using Spring Data, our Build a Simple Todo Application has everything you need. This 2-hour workshop shows you how to use Spring Boot and Spring Data Cassandra to build a simple microservice-style application using the Repository API, guided by experts Mark Paluch (VMWare) and Cédrick Lunven (DataStax). Don’t forget to have a look at our updated Spring skills page which contains click-to-bootstrap hands-on learning scenarios in Katacoda!
