Spring Boot and Angular

By: Devlin Basilan Duldulao, Seiji Ralph Villafranca

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.

Authentication and authorization in Spring Boot

We have already discussed the concepts of Spring Security in the previous section; now, we will learn how to integrate Spring Security into our Spring Boot application. As we move on to the examples, we will be using all the modules and features of Spring Boot Security.

Authentication and authorization are the most common concepts that we come across when we implement security in our applications. These are the two validations we apply for our application to be secure.

Configuring Spring Boot and implementing authentication

We will first implement authentication in our application. We first need to add the Spring Boot Security dependency to our project. To add the dependency, we will add the following to pom.xml:

<dependency>
   <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
   <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-security</artifactId>
</dependency>
