TODO


This guide will help you create a full stack application integrating Angular/React/Vue JS as frontend and using Spring Boot to create the backend REST API.

Todo

  • How to import and run projects from git repository?
  • Create videos based on full stack articles.

We will and create a TODO***.

You will learn

  • What?
  • Why?
  • How?
  • Where?
  • When?

10 Step Reference Courses

Resources/URLs/Entities Overview

In this guide, we will create TODO services.

The REST API can be enhanced to interact with other microservices infrastructure components and act as microservices.

Complete Maven Project With Code Examples

Our Github repository has all the code examples - https://github.com/in28minutes/spring-boot-examples/tree/master/TODO_URL

Project Structure

Following screenshot shows the structure of the project we will create. Image

A few details:

  • StudentController.java - Rest controller exposing all the three service methods discussed above.
  • Course.java, Student.java, StudentService.java - Business Logic for the application. StudentService exposes a couple of methods we would consume from our Rest Controller.
  • StudentControllerIT.java - Integration Tests for the Rest Services.
  • StudentControllerTest.java - Unit Tests for the Rest Services.
  • StudentServicesApplication.java - Launcher for the Spring Boot Application. To run the application, just launch this file as Java Application.
  • pom.xml - Contains all the dependencies needed to build this project. We will use Spring Boot Starter Web.

Tools you will need

  • Maven 3.0+ for building Spring Boot API Project
  • npm, webpack for building frontend
  • Your favorite IDE. We use Eclipse for Java and Visual Studio Code for Frontend - JavaScript, TypeScript, Angular and React.
  • JDK 1.8+
  • Node v8+
  • Embedded Tomcat, built into Spring Boot Starter Web

Bootstrapping Spring Boot REST API with Spring Initializr

Creating a REST service with Spring Initializr is a cake walk. We will use Spring Web MVC as our web framework.

Spring Initializr http://start.spring.io/ is great tool to bootstrap your Spring Boot projects.

As shown in the image above, following steps have to be done

  • Launch Spring Initializr and choose the following
    • Choose TODO as Group
    • Choose TODO as Artifact
    • Choose following dependencies
      • Web
      • DevTools
      • TODO
  • Click Generate Project.
  • Import the project into Eclipse. File -> Import -> Existing Maven Project.
  • If you want to understand all the files that are part of this project, you can go here TODO.

Bootstrapping Angular Frontend with Create React App

Change title to ‘My Full Stack Application with Spring Boot and React’ in index.html

import React, { Component } from 'react';

class InstructorApp extends Component {
    render() {
        return (

            <div className="InstructorApp">
                <h1>Instructor Application</h1>
            </div>
        )
    }
}

export default InstructorApp

npm add axios npm add react-router-dom npm add formik

STEP 1 : TODO

Step N : Executing the TODO Service

Below picture shows how we can execute this Get Service from Postman - my favorite tool to run rest services. Image

Executing a POST Rest Service

Example Request is shown below.

Below picture shows how we can execute this Post Service from Postman - my favorite tool to run rest services. Make sure you go to the Body tab and select raw. Select JSON from the dropdown. Copy above request into body.
