Today we are going to talk about adding front end user interface to our application, from scratch. We can add the front end to our application using something called view resolvers.

As the name suggests, we should not need to do a whole lot to get going with one of these. In this video we would be looking at Thymeleaf. I find it easy to use and feature rich at the same time. Thymeleaf is mostly HTML. Finally, we will talk about Web JARs & How to add Branding to our web application, using responsive web design.

Recently, I came to know that the free and open-source distribution of Kendo UI news also ships AngularJS with it.
FYI : Kendo UI core now ships with Apache 2 license and not GPL.

Anywhere you need a page, use a MVC controller and views, whereas for CRUD operations basically one may use Web API controllers ( async calls ) with HTTP verbs.
