Which course should we take next to build a web app that CAN be deployed LIVE?

SInce this doesnt cover the best practices we need to go live....what course should we take next that will get us there? Spring Basics? I know we can take the Ruby on Rails and Node.js courses....but i would like to stay in Java.

If you want to stick with Java, then, yes, I would go with Spring Basics and then see where it takes you from there.

As for the actual deployment, if you are new, unfortunately, there are no courses that teach deployment, which is a shame because it's always so hard to find any deployment tutorials anywhere on the internet, for any language. The best thing I can find is if you go to Digital Ocean's tutorials for installing a web server like Tomcat and then following tomcat's guides for configuration and deployment of the application's WAR file, although they are slightly hard to read because they use very technical wording.

Since this question was posted nearly two years ago Treehouse put up a workshop on deploying Spring Boot apps, including services like Wildfly and Heroku: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/deploying-a-spring-application (Pro subscription required though)

I see, wish I would have known about this, no wonder I didn't see anything. To be more specific though, I was referring to something like a tomcat or nginx deployment
