If you are building an online store or just need a place to record your inventory, then chances are you will need a Product Catalog. Now you could go out and buy any old cookie cutter Catalog tool on the market. However, before you do, you better make sure you understand what your Catalog requires. Otherwise, you may spend a lot of time and money on a tool that will not fit the bill. So, today we will focus on building an MVC Application to Manage Our Catalog.
Understand how to build an MVC web application to manage and interact with the data in our existing catalog
This particular use case will show you how to build a Spring MVC application with a friendly web interface to insert, update, delete, and query your data. We will also be expanding our focus in this lesson and take the concepts we learned in previously to continue growing our applications to make interacting with our database and Catalog easier. For example, we will be developing a web application that will use Spring MVC to convert our previous standalone program into a simple GUI web-based application that we can interact with over an internet or an intranet.
This series comes from our mentoring/mastermind classes. These classes are virtual meetings that focus on how to improve our technical skills and build our businesses. The goals of each member vary, but this diversity makes for great discussions and ton of educational value every time we meet. We hope you enjoy this series as much as we enjoy creating it.
