Spring Boot and Angular

Overview of this book

Angular makes building applications with the web easy and Spring Boot helps get an application up and running using just a few lines of code and minimal configuration. This book provides insights into building full-stack apps using Angular and Spring Boot effectively to reduce overall development time and increase efficiency. You'll start by setting up your CI/CD pipeline and then build your web application’s backend guided by best practices. You'll then see how Spring Boot allows you to build applications faster and more efficiently by letting the Spring Framework and Spring Boot extension do the heavy lifting. The book demonstrates how to use Spring Data JPA and add its dependencies along with Postgres dependencies in the project to save or persist a user's data in a database for future use. As you advance, you'll see how to write tests and test a service using Mockito. Finally, you'll create a CI workflow or pipeline for a Spring Boot and Angular application to enable operations to deliver quality applications faster. By the end of this Spring Boot and Angular book, you'll be able to build a full-stack web application and deploy it through continuous integration and continuous deployment.

Setting up SLF4J and Log4j2

We will now implement several logging frameworks, including Logback and Log4j2, in our Spring Boot application. Remember that SLF4J is already included.

Configuring Logback

Logback is the default logger used by Spring Applications, so no dependencies need to be installed to use it. The spring-boot-starter-logging dependency is already included once we create our Spring Boot application. The first step we need to take is to make our Logback configuration file.

In our project, under the resources folder, we will add the logback-spring.xml file. This is where we will place our Logback configuration. The following is an example configuration:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <property name="LOGS" value="./logs" />
    <!—Please refer to the logback-spring.xml of
