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.

Getting started with Cypress

In this section, you will learn what Cypress is and how to get started with it.

Cypress is an end-to-end agnostic framework for testing web applications. You can write test IDs in HTML tags and assert whether the HTML tags are rendered in the way you would expect them to be.

Let’s define what end-to-end means. End-to-end means how a user will use your application after they land on your web application and finish tasks such as logging in, signing up, checking out, viewing a profile, logging out, filling out a form, and so on.

For instance, you can test or check the UI of your web application in different example cases or scenarios:

  • The sentence of the landing page’s value proposition contains the word sale
  • The widget count of a section of your website is what you expected
  • The items in the basket on the checkout page are cleared out after hitting the Clear button
  • A login form is present when the web application...
