Hi all, what path would you recommend to someone just getting into the Spring ecosystem? Should Spring Boot be the first go to or the Spring -> Spring MVC path?
I didn't find a similiar question so I posted this one here.

Thanks!

When starting with Spring, first understand Spring core.
Once you are well versed with spring beans, DI/IoC then next you can take up any topics like, Spring MVC/JDBC/ORM, etc.

Hey thanks for the quick reply. I did find similar posts here and all agree on knowing well Spring core (DI, AOP, xml vs annotation etc).

More like Java configuration verses Java Annotations. While XML configuration is still supported the spring framework is moving away from it.
