Spring Boot and Security using Spring Data JPA for authentication

Recently one of my friends was working on a Spring Boot project and he was having trouble finding an example of how to configure user login for his site with Spring Boot using JPA. I had mentioned that there is some mention of configuring security in Greg Turnquist’s book Learning Spring Boot. He had just purchased Spring Boot in Action and I don’t think he was rushing to grab another book, but he hadn’t been able to find a good online tutorial.

Today I was browsing Twitter and I came across exactly what my friend was looking for. Priyadarshini B wrote a great online tutorial on doing just that on her blog. The post was so great I wanted to share it. So head over there and check it out, you won’t be disappointed as it will walk you through the whole process.
