This project was completed as part of the UGA CSCI 6370 course requirements. The idea was to build a basic ETF (exchange trade fund) back-testing application. This application allows the user to enter a set of dates and a dollor amount to invest. The user can then choose one of the 4 largest ETFs to track how that investment would have preformed over the specified time frame.
To develop this application, our team choose to use Java with Spring Boot framework and a mySQL database. In Spring Boot we choose to use the following dependencies: spring-boot-starter-jdbc to connect with our database, spring-boot-connector-java as our JDBC driver, spring-boot-thymeleaf to allow us to create premade html templates for our view, and also spring-boot-starter-web to help develop our UI.
