Spring Boot lets you create stand-alone, production-grade, Spring-based applications and services with minimal fuss. It offers a radically faster and highly accessible manner for starting all Spring development. By taking an opinionated view of the Spring platform, it enables you to quickly and easily get to the bits you need.

Most Spring Boot applications need minimal Spring configuration. You can use it to create a stand-alone Java application or more traditional WAR deployments. A command line tool is also provided that allows you to run spring scripts.
