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.

Understanding Spring Boot

We have already discussed an overview of Spring in Chapter 1, Spring Boot and Angular – The Big Picture. In this section, we will have a deeper understanding of the essential concepts of Spring Boot in building your backend application, but first, let’s recap what Spring Boot is and its significant advantages.

Spring Boot is an open source micro-framework from Pivotal. It is an enterprise-level framework for developers to create standalone applications on Java Virtual Machines (JVMs). Its primary focus is to shorten your code length to make it easier for you to run your application.

The framework extends the Spring Framework, which allows a more opinionated way to configure your applications. In addition, it comes with built-in autoconfiguration capabilities that configure both Spring Framework and third-party packages based on your settings.

Here are the significant advantages of Spring Boot:
