Announcing ListCrudRepository & Friends for Spring Data 3.0

Engineering | Jens Schauder | February 22, 2022 | ...

The Spring Data CrudRepository has various methods that return multiple instances of the entity managed by the repository. It does so by using Iterable and not List, as one might expect.
