We should add a page to our documentation that explains our integrations with the Spring framework.
This should cover both Spring Data Cassandra and Spring Boot. It's important that users understand that we recommend the Pivotal/VMWare Spring Boot Starter and contribute directly to that source.
We should also have links out to their getting started material, documentation, and source code.
A better example for Spring Data + Astra:
The docs should also cover the caveat mentioned here:
(summary): It seems that native-protocol version 1.4.11 has to be explicitly declared in some SpringBoot/Spring Data Cassandra projects to avoid a ClassNotFoundException for com.datastax.oss.protocol.internal.SegmentCodec. The docs should cover explicitly adding this dependency if running into this issue.
