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.

With this, we have reached the end of this chapter. Let’s recap the valuable things you have learned.

First, you learned about the available features and properties of springdoc-openapi and how to configure and use the OpenAPI specification to generate the JSON and YAML documentation for our API calls. You also learned how to access Swagger UI, an interactive documentation tool for calling APIs directly in a browser. We simulated this to send test calls and modify certain behaviors, such as the domain URL and the sorting order. This newly acquired knowledge for generating documentation for APIs is very useful in real-world applications. This knowledge is used by developers to easily identify the available APIs that can be consumed, as well as their parameters and object responses.

In the next chapter, we will learn about the concept of Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS), Spring Security, and JSON Web Tokens (JWTs).
