  • Spring Boot 2.1.2.RELEASE
  • Spring 5.1.4.RELEASE
  • Spring Data JPA 2.1.4.RELEASE
  • H2 In-memory Database 1.4.197
  • Tomcat Embed 9.0.14
  • JUnit 4.12
  • Maven 3
  • Java 8

3. Spring REST

3.1 A REST controller to create the following REST API endpoints :

HTTP Method URI Description
GET /books List all books.
POST /books Save a book.
GET /books/{id} Find a book where id = {:id}.
PUT /books/{id} Update a book where id = {:id}, or save it.
PATCH /books/{id} Update a single field where id = {:id}.
DELETE /books/{id} Delete a book where id = {:id}.
BookController.java

package com.mkyong;

import com.mkyong.error.BookNotFoundException;
import com.mkyong.error.BookUnSupportedFieldPatchException;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.util.StringUtils;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.*;

import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

@RestController
public class BookController {

    @Autowired
    private BookRepository repository;

    // Find
    @GetMapping("/books")
    List<Book> findAll() {
        return repository.findAll();
    }

    // Save
    //return 201 instead of 200
    @ResponseStatus(HttpStatus.CREATED)
    @PostMapping("/books")
    Book newBook(@RequestBody Book newBook) {
        return repository.save(newBook);
    }

    // Find
    @GetMapping("/books/{id}")
    Book findOne(@PathVariable Long id) {
        return repository.findById(id)
                .orElseThrow(() -> new BookNotFoundException(id));
    }

    // Save or update
    @PutMapping("/books/{id}")
    Book saveOrUpdate(@RequestBody Book newBook, @PathVariable Long id) {

        return repository.findById(id)
                .map(x -> {
                    x.setName(newBook.getName());
                    x.setAuthor(newBook.getAuthor());
                    x.setPrice(newBook.getPrice());
                    return repository.save(x);
                })
                .orElseGet(() -> {
                    newBook.setId(id);
                    return repository.save(newBook);
                });
    }

    // update author only
    @PatchMapping("/books/{id}")
    Book patch(@RequestBody Map<String, String> update, @PathVariable Long id) {

        return repository.findById(id)
                .map(x -> {

                    String author = update.get("author");
                    if (!StringUtils.isEmpty(author)) {
                        x.setAuthor(author);

                        // better create a custom method to update a value = :newValue where id = :id
                        return repository.save(x);
                    } else {
                        throw new BookUnSupportedFieldPatchException(update.keySet());
                    }

                })
                .orElseGet(() -> {
                    throw new BookNotFoundException(id);
                });

    }

    @DeleteMapping("/books/{id}")
    void deleteBook(@PathVariable Long id) {
        repository.deleteById(id);
    }

}

4. Spring Data JPA

4.1 A model annotated with JPA annotations.

Book.java

package com.mkyong;

import javax.persistence.Entity;
import javax.persistence.GeneratedValue;
import javax.persistence.Id;
import java.math.BigDecimal;

@Entity
public class Book {

    @Id
    @GeneratedValue
    private Long id;
    private String name;
    private String author;
    private BigDecimal price;

    //setters, getters, constructors...
}

4.2 Create a class and extends JpaRepository, it contains all the CRUD operations.

BookRepository.java

package com.mkyong;

import org.springframework.data.jpa.repository.JpaRepository;

// Spring Data magic :)
public interface BookRepository extends JpaRepository<Book, Long> {
}

5. Basic Error Handling

Create a @ControllerAdvice to handle the custom exceptions thrown by the controller.

CustomGlobalExceptionHandler

package com.mkyong.error;

import org.springframework.http.HttpStatus;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.ControllerAdvice;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.ExceptionHandler;
import org.springframework.web.servlet.mvc.method.annotation.ResponseEntityExceptionHandler;

import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import java.io.IOException;

@ControllerAdvice
public class CustomGlobalExceptionHandler extends ResponseEntityExceptionHandler {

    // Let Spring handle the exception, we just override the status code
    @ExceptionHandler(BookNotFoundException.class)
    public void springHandleNotFound(HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException {
        response.sendError(HttpStatus.NOT_FOUND.value());
    }

    @ExceptionHandler(BookUnSupportedFieldPatchException.class)
    public void springUnSupportedFieldPatch(HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException {
        response.sendError(HttpStatus.METHOD_NOT_ALLOWED.value());
    }

}
BookNotFoundException.java

package com.mkyong.error;

public class BookNotFoundException extends RuntimeException {

    public BookNotFoundException(Long id) {
        super("Book id not found : " + id);
    }

}
BookUnSupportedFieldPatchException.java

package com.mkyong.error;

import java.util.Set;

public class BookUnSupportedFieldPatchException extends RuntimeException {

    public BookUnSupportedFieldPatchException(Set<String> keys) {
        super("Field " + keys.toString() + " update is not allow.");
    }

}

6. Spring Boot

6.1 Create a @SpringBootApplication class to start the REST web application, and insert 3 predefined book objects into the H2 In-memory database for demo.

StartBookApplication.java

package com.mkyong;

import org.springframework.boot.CommandLineRunner;
import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Bean;

import java.math.BigDecimal;

@SpringBootApplication
public class StartBookApplication {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(StartBookApplication.class, args);
    }

	// init bean to insert 3 books into h2 database.
    @Bean
    CommandLineRunner initDatabase(BookRepository repository) {
        return args -> {
            repository.save(new Book("A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life", "Santideva", new BigDecimal("15.41")));
            repository.save(new Book("The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up", "Marie Kondo", new BigDecimal("9.69")));
            repository.save(new Book("Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code", "Martin Fowler", new BigDecimal("47.99")));
        };
    }
}

7. Demo

hello Mkyong , is there no need for Spring Configuration xml any more, and this is entirely driven by annotations?

Thank you very much for your efforts. This could be the best content I could find about Spring.

Hi Mkyong,
Thanks for nice tutorial. I connected to Oracle Database. Worked fine. I can see the tables created in database. I have 2 questions.
1. At what point database tables were created? I couldn’t see any step to create tables but still they were there.
2. Now that my application is running- I want to have real time data so I commented the initDatabase method. but then I am not able to see the data. Why the data is getting truncated everytime?
