Java language-specific guide

The Java getting started guide teaches you how to create a containerized Spring Boot application using Docker. In this module, you’ll learn how to:

  • Containerize and run a Spring Boot application with Maven
  • Set up a local development environment to connect a database to the container, configure a debugger, and use Compose Watch for live reload
  • Run your unit tests inside a container
  • Configure a CI/CD pipeline for your application using GitHub Actions
  • Deploy your containerized application locally to Kubernetes to test and debug your deployment

After completing the Java getting started modules, you should be able to containerize your own Java application based on the examples and instructions provided in this guide.
