Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll create a user registration form that allows users to specify their delivery address and use that address at checkout. You’ll use Spring Security to configure a form-based user registration and login, set up password controls, and store user details in PostgreSQL.

UPDATED: July 2023 to use the latest versions of Java, Gradle, and Spring Boot; and updated instructional text throughout all the projects.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
