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 the Development Environment

In the previous chapter, you learned about Spring Boot in a nutshell and its advantages. We also tackled the latest features of Java 17. The same goes for Angular; you had an overview of Angular and the benefits of using it to develop frontend applications.

This chapter will teach you how to set up your computer’s development environment to develop your full-stack Java and Angular application. We will tackle different IDEs and text editors to write our code and make sure everything has been configured before we start with the development.

Installing everything correctly from the beginning will help us avoid issues and write code without any interruptions.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Installing VS Code and IntelliJ IDEA
  • Installing Java 17
  • Installing SDKMAN
  • Setting up IntelliJ IDEA with Java 17
  • Installing REST Client VS Code or JetBrains and Angular DevTools
  • Installing Git version...
