Validating form elements
If the validation fails, the response is then sent back to the client, page that contains the web form is refreshed and a feedback is shown.
This method is secure because it will work even if Java Script is turned off in the browser and it can’t be easily bypassed by malicious users. Ajax calls to the server can validate as you type and provide immediate feedback.
You can use any build system you like when building apps with Spring, but the code you need to work with Maven is included here. Or you can build a single executable JAR file that contains all the necessary dependencies, classes, and resources, and run that.
