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.

In the previous section, we created our custom login authentication using Spring Security. We utilized some of the features of Spring Security and also used JWT to store user states and validate credentials. However, this example is not enough of a reliable and secure way of implementing authentication for our application.

Large and enterprise applications nowadays demand several security features to be able to prevent possible vulnerabilities that can occur. These features can include the architecture and the implementation of other services, such as SSO and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). These features can be cumbersome to work with and can require several sprints to modify, leading to a longer time to develop. This is where IDaaS comes to the rescue.

IDaaS is a delivery model that allows users to connect, authenticate, and use identity management services from the cloud. IDaaS helps speed up the development process as all authentication and authorization processes...
