The old way:

Route::get("get-data", "[email protected]");

Routing in new Laravel 8 way:

use App\Http\Controllers\MainController;
Route::get('get-data',  [MainController::class, 'getData']);

In Laravel 8 routing, there are 2 changes,

i) The syntax in the second param of the Route function, we should pass an array with the Controller name and its method and

ii) To import every controller used at the top of the file.
