Spring Boot allows easy setup of standalone Spring-based applications. It's ideal for pulling up new microservices and easy to deploy. It also makes data access less of a pain, thanks to the JPA mappings through Spring Data. We like that Spring Boot simplifies Java services built with Spring but have learned to be cautious of the many dependencies. Spring still lurks just beneath the surface. If you’re writing microservices with Java, you might also consider using Dropwizard or a microframework like Spark to get the benefits of Spring Boot without the enormous weight of Spring.
