In this liveProject, you’ll take on the role of a Java developer building an ecommerce web app for a small bakery. To support its business model of delivering cakes for breakfast, the bakery needs a bespoke solution that focuses on local delivery and one-click payments. Through the liveProjects in this series, you’ll work to create a minimal viable product for the store and then iterate on it with new business features such as a shopping basket, Facebook login, and PayPal checkout. You’ll use the Spring and Spring Boot Java frameworks to build, test, and deploy your app. Every project in this series includes a set of unit and integration tests, and basic user-interface tests, to help you understand best software testing practices.

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

These projects are designed for learning purposes and are not complete, production-ready applications or solutions.

here's what's included

Project 1 Build a Catalog

In this liveProject, you’ll build a product catalog for an ecommerce application. You’ll learn how to load data from a database and display it on an HTML page, and use integration tests to properly understand your model and ensure its accuracy. At the end, you’ll have a fully functional Spring application that loads data from the database using Spring Data JPA and displays it using Spring MVC.

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

Project 2 Add a Basket

In this liveProject, you’ll build a shopping basket that stores data in a user session. You will learn how to use sessions in Spring MVC, handle HTML forms, and use different bean scopes in Spring Framework. At the end, you will have a basket feature added to the website, so users can add items from the catalog.

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

Project 3 User Registration and Login

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.

Project 4 Login with Facebook

In this liveProject, you’ll set up a Facebook and social media sign on option for your eCommerce store using the Spring Security OAuth2 module. You’ll configure Spring Security for login using the OpenID authentication protocol, and fully create the functionality to login using a Facebook account and manage a profile without needing a new username and password.

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

Project 5 Checkout

In this liveProject, you’ll set up everything needed for reliable ecommerce checkout. You’ll integrate one-click payment options, create a PayPal developer account and user accounts for testing, and integrate with the official PayPal SDK.

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

Project 6 Package and Deploy

In this liveProject, you’ll package your application as a Docker image that’s ready for easy deployment. You’ll use Spring Boot to package your app to Docker, and then deploy to AWS with Amazon RDS and Beanstalk. Finally, you’ll reimplement functionalities for a Facebook login and configure HTTPs.
