Overview of Spring Boot, Hibernate, MySQL example
We will build a Spring Boot + MySQL CRUD example for a Tutorial application in that:
- Each Tutotial has id, title, description, published status.
- Apis help to create, retrieve, update, delete Tutorials.
- Apis also support custom finder methods such as find by published status or by title.
These are APIs that we need to provide:
|POST||/api/tutorials||create new Tutorial|
|GET||/api/tutorials||retrieve all Tutorials|
|GET||/api/tutorials/:id||retrieve a Tutorial by
|PUT||/api/tutorials/:id||update a Tutorial by
|DELETE||/api/tutorials/:id||delete a Tutorial by
|DELETE||/api/tutorials||delete all Tutorials|
|GET||/api/tutorials/published||find all published Tutorials|
|GET||/api/tutorials?title=[keyword]||find all Tutorials which title contains
- We make CRUD operations & finder methods with Spring Data JPA's
- The database could be PostgreSQL or MySQL depending on the way we configure project dependency & datasource.
- Java 8
- Spring Boot 2 (with Spring Web MVC, Spring Data JPA)
Let me explain it briefly.
Tutorial data model class corresponds to entity and table tutorials.
TutorialRepository is an interface that extends JpaRepository for CRUD methods and custom finder methods. It will be autowired in
TutorialController is a RestController which has request mapping methods for RESTful requests such as: getAllTutorials, createTutorial, updateTutorial, deleteTutorial, findByPublished...
– Configuration for Spring Datasource, JPA & Hibernate in application.properties.
– pom.xml contains dependencies for Spring Boot and MySQL/PostgreSQL.
