This is a quick tutorial showing how easy it is to integrate with Clearent’s secure payments gateway. Clearent has designed a language agnostic RESTful online payments gateway, meaning developers of almost any language should be able to start processing with Clearent.
Today we’ll be using Spring Boot and a handful of other libraries to get a payments service up and running fast. Spring Boot provides an opinionated implementation of the Spring framework in an embedded JAR file. We’ve been using it internally here at Clearent for over a year now, and has reduced our development time and has provided quick integration with thousands of popular libraries and tools. We’re going to assume some basic familiarity with Spring Boot, but if you’d like an introduction, Spring’s Tutorial on Building REST Services demonstrates all of the topics covered in this post.
