In this tutorial, we will learn how to build a full stack Angular 8 + Spring Boot example with a CRUD App. The back-end server uses Spring Boot with Spring Web MVC for REST Controller and Spring Data JPA for interacting with MySQL/PostgreSQL database. Front-end side is made with Angular 8, HTTPClient & Router.
Angular 8 & Spring Boot CRUD example
We will build a full-stack Tutorial Application in that:
- Each Tutorial has id, title, description, published status.
- We can create, retrieve, update, delete Tutorials.
- We can also find Tutorials by title.
The images below shows screenshots of our System.
– Add Tutorial:
– Retrieve all Tutorials:
– Click on Edit button to update a Tutorial:
On this Page, you can:
- change status to Published using Publish button
- delete the Tutorial using Delete button
- update the Tutorial details with Update button
– Search Tutorials by title:
Angular 8 & Spring Boot Architecture
This is the application architecture we will build:
– Spring Boot exports REST Apis using Spring Web MVC & interacts with Database using Spring JPA
– Angular Client sends HTTP Requests and retrieve HTTP Responses using axios, shows data on the components. We also use Angular Router for navigating to pages.
– Database could be MySQL or PostgreSQL.
Here is Angular Spring Boot CRUD application demo and brief instruction, running with MySQL database:
(Although Angular 10 is in the video, but logic and UI work the same as this Angular 8 + Spring Boot + MySQL example)
Spring Boot Back-end
These are APIs that Spring Boot App will export:
|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?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 2.2.1 (with Spring Web MVC, Spring Data JPA)
- Maven 3.6.1
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.
You can find step by step to implement this Spring Boot Server Application in the post:
Spring Boot, Spring Data JPA – Building Rest CRUD API example
Angular 8 Front-end
App component is a container with
router-outlet. It has navbar that links to routes paths via
TutorialsList component gets and displays Tutorials.
Tutorial component has form for editing Tutorial’s details based on
AddTutorial component has form for submission new Tutorial.
– These Components call
TutorialService methods which use Angular
HTTPClient to make HTTP requests and receive responses.
- Angular 8
- Angular HTTPClient
- Angular Router
– There are 3 components:
tutorial.service has methods for sending HTTP requests to the Apis.
– app-routing.module.ts defines routes for each component.
app component contains router view and navigation bar.
app.module.ts declares Angular components and import necessary modules.

Newer version: Angular 10 CRUD Application example with Web API
Now we have an overview of Angular 8 + Spring Boot CRUD example when building a CRUD App.
We also take a look at client-server architecture for REST API using Spring Web MVC & Spring Data JPA, as well as Angular 8 project structure for building a front-end app to make HTTP requests and consume responses.
Next tutorials show you more details about how to implement the system:
