Simple projects containing the same application configured in different ways using Spring (and in one case without Spring at all).

Clone the repo in typical fashion, or download a zip of the sources.

Browse through the slides or watch the original one-hour webinar on YouTube. Either one will give you a good sense of what each project intends to demonstrate.

Build and test everything and run the TransferScript main methods with

gradlew run test

Import the projects into Eclipse with

gradlew eclipse

and then File->Import->Existing Projects Into Workspace. For IDEA users, it's gradlew idea.

Once you're looking at the code, just browse around. Review how DefaultTransferService works. Look at each of the following and see how they differ across projects:

  • TransferScript
  • TransferServiceTests
  • app-config.xml

Explore, experiment, have fun!
