A new course is available on GraphAcademy for Building Neo4j Applications with Java! Michael Hunger and I collaborated to create a hands-on course that starts with a project skeleton and guides users through writing code to build a completed IMDB-clone application with Neo4j and Java. In the app, we can store and query users, movies, genres, people, and user favorites.

The data that feeds the fully-fledged application includes the MovieLens recommendation dataset, augmented with movie and cast data. Data results are presented to the user through a beautiful webpage supported by Vue.js for a user-friendly experience. Many of you might also wonder which Java web framework we chose – so many choices! SparkJava was the winner for this course due to its minimalist approach. We focused on the backend aspects of Java, agnostic of some of the larger web frameworks (such as Spring or Quarkus). Other courses devoted to those specific frameworks may appear, so stay tuned!

If you are interested in similar courses for other languages, check out the full course list on GraphAcademy, and if there’s something missing you’d like to see, don’t hesitate to let us know. We hope you enjoy building fun and useful things with Neo4j – we definitely do!
