This MOOC describes by example how to build cloud services via the use of object-oriented design techniques; Java programming language features; Java Servlets, the Java Spring Framework; and cloud computing platforms, such as Amazon Web Services. Due to the importance of building secure and scalable mobile/cloud platforms, this MOOC will not only show you how to build cloud services, but how to do so securely, scalably, and efficiently. Security and scalability topics will be woven into discussions of cloud service creation so that students learn, from the start, how to create robust cloud services....



This is one of the courses that I would definitely recommend. Quizzes and especially programming assignments really helped my understanding. Plus Prof. Jules is one of the great instructors.


Great Lectures and explanation. However before taking this course need to have a good understanding on OAuth2 subject. The lecture does not cover OAuth2 but the assignment required this.

I got 6 words for you DO NOT TAKE ON THIS COURSE!! I'm surprised that Coursera is still allowing this course to go on.The course content is actually not that bad.But the problem is the assignments have got nothing to do with the course content.Specially in the second assignment I spent close to a week just configuring OAuth.And do you know the best part about it,THE COURSE DOESN'T TEACH YOU A SINGLE BLOODY THING ON HOW TO CONFIGURE OAUTH!! The instructors have clearly abandoned this course.You will spent more time trying to get the java projects to run than on doing the assignments.So please save your valuable time!! I say this with absolute sincerity!

The videos are good, but the first quiz has an error on the 3rd question and both assignments have errors. The forums are full with people having the same problems yet the instructors seem to have abandoned the course.

This course is beginners level, so I'm going to write the review with that in mind. The course covers a breadth of topics - network protocols (HTTP, REST), IaaS vs PaaS, MVC model, Web Servlets and Controllers, DAO layer, different database strategies (relational vs NoSQL), deployment strategies. For my personal taste it would have been better to delve deeper into the different topics, which this course doesn't do. Instead it covers a lot of different topics but mostly on the surface level. I think that makes it better for beginners to have a better grasp of the overall architecture of a back-end system. The practical assignments were well documented and will teach the student how to write controllers for a back-end application. Overall, I think this is a great course for beginners level.

Course was very good. Lectures were excellent and well paced. Programming assignments were good as well. Learned a lot about Spring Framework.

HOWEVER: There appears to be NO support from the instructors and the programming assignments have some configuration issues. May students, myself included, spent a great deal of time getting projects set up to run properly rather than spending the time doing the assignment. The material was first written in 2014, so some of the problems are that things are not updated. Regardless of this complaint, the class is worth taking, in my opinion. Just don't expect instructor support.

Very good introduction to Spring Framework. I also like the fact that there is an excellent explanation about the protocol HTTP. As developer, we use it all the time but knowing more details about it are really interresting.

No support is provided for this course anymore.

Assignments might be outdated

All the topics were explained perfectly clear.

Thank you for your course.

The course outline is really helpful for a newbie and the way Dr Jules White explains is impressive. Complex processes of dispatcher servlet and spring security have made simple. The downside I faced was that many lectures were missing which you can see in the youtube channel of Dr Jules.

The instructor has an incredible knowledge about the topics. I would like that the course has an update specifically in build.gradle files because this cause some errors in the code tests.

Inhalt des Kurses ist gut. Programmieraufgaben haben mich dermaßen viele Nerven gekostet, dass ich am liebsten die Vanderbilt University mit meinem Laptop zertrümmert hätte... Unzählige Probleme, um das Projekt überhaupt bauen zu können, irreführende Beschreibungen, falsche Anleitungen, ... Und keine Antwort oder gar Updates der Kursleiter. Fragwürdig...

The course was awesome and the assignments were great too. All the basics of developing a web application were covered. I would like to offer one suggestion though. The course taught the basics of security in a web application, but, what was missing was how to implement security using spring boot or rather spring security even. If you would have also taught how to implement security in spring boot, some of the best standard practices, or some basics of spring security, I would not have to learn those from somewhere else and this course would have been a one-stop solution to start building web services with spring boot. Still, I believe this was an awesome course and this taught me 90% of what I needed to build production-ready backend applications using spring boot. Thanks for bringing such an awesome course

This is a great introduction to Spring and web services. The explanations are crystal clear and to the point. The pace is just right, you can absorb the material and really build your knowledge with every course. I can see somebody going from essentially zero to building a useful initial web service using the material taught here. I also like the fact that the tutor takes time to present concepts properly and I didn't find any logical gaps in the succession of the course - each step builds on the knowledge from the previous.

Would recommend 100% and would really like to see more courses from the same team! Kudos!

Great course. Great lecture material. People who wants to move from J2EE architecture this one gives good understanding. Professor took lot of effort in delivering the course material. Really impressive. Good course for learning spring.

If people are new to spring there is some effort needed to making the assignments to work especially spring annotations. Also there are workspace related issues.

README can be enhanced on issues in the workspace and how to trouble shoot.

Thanks to professor for providing such a valuable course. If more courses are offered by him I would like to take.

Interesting, useful and nicely narrated course. It provides some basic very digestible essential Spring MVC basics without unnecessary deep diving. Assignments are quite easy. Note to all frustrated caps lock lovers: just RTFM! Assignment descriptions contain all you need to complete, just read carefully and mindfully. Thanks, Dr. White!



Dr. Jules White is one of the most exceptional teacher I have ever come across. The course and all its assignments are well formed. I will recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning how to build cloud services for mobile clients using java spring framework(the best framework for this task).
