Spring boot starter parent and spring boot maven dependancy

What is spring boot starters?

Spring Boot starters makes deveroper easyer to add jars to classpath

 

Spring boot starter parent

The spring-boot-starter-parent provides Maven and spring default configuration and dependency-management section so that you can omit version tags for “blessed” dependencies.

<parent>
    <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
    <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-parent</artifactId>
    <version>1.5.6.RELEASE</version>
</parent>

Note : We can also declare our own parent if needed refer :

Spring boot starter Web

Other “Starters” simply provide dependencies that you are likely to need when developing a specific type of application. Since we are developing a web application, we will add a spring-boot-starter-web dependency to our opm.xml file

<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
        <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-web</artifactId>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>
