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.

Saving, Deleting, and Updating with NgRx

In the previous chapter, we learned about the concepts and features of NgRx. We learned the importance of state management as it provides a single source for the application to have a unidirectional data flow and reduces the responsibility of components. We also learned the building blocks of NgRx, which are actions, effects, reducers, and selectors. Lastly, we implemented the getting and displaying of the anti-heroes list feature using NgRx in our application.

In this chapter, we will now complete our application’s missing features – saving, deleting, and updating data by still using NgRx.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Removing an item without side effects using NgRx
  • Removing an item with side effects using NgRx
  • Adding an item with side effects using NgRx
  • Updating an item with side effects using NgRx
