Spring Boot + Vue.js + MongoDB: CRUD example

In this tutorial, we will learn how to build a full stack example with Spring Boot + Vue.js + MongoDB CRUD Application. The back-end server uses Spring Boot with Spring Web MVC for REST Controller and Spring Data for interacting with MongoDB database. Front-end side is made with Vue, Vue Router & Bootstrap.

Spring Boot, Vue.js, MongoDB 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 an object:

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-create

– Show all objects:

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-retrieve

– Click on Edit button to update the object:

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-retrieve-one

On this Page, you can:

  • change status to Published using Publish button
  • remove the Tutorial from Database using Delete button
  • update the Tutorial details on Database with Update button

– Search Tutorials by title:

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-find-by-field

– Check MongoDB tutorials collection:

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-mongodb-collection

Spring Boot, Vue.js, MongoDB Architecture

This is the application architecture that we’re gonna build:

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-architecture

– Spring Boot exports REST Apis using Spring Web MVC & interacts with MongoDB Database using Spring Data MongoDB.
– Vue Client sends HTTP Requests and retrieve HTTP Responses using axios, shows data on the components. We also use Vue Router for navigating to pages.

Spring Boot MongoDB Back-end

Overview

These are APIs that Spring Boot App will export:

MethodsUrlsActions
POST/api/tutorialscreate new Tutorial
GET/api/tutorialsretrieve all Tutorials
GET/api/tutorials/:idretrieve a Tutorial by :id
PUT/api/tutorials/:idupdate a Tutorial by :id
DELETE/api/tutorials/:iddelete a Tutorial by :id
DELETE/api/tutorialsdelete all Tutorials
GET/api/tutorials?title=[keyword]find all Tutorials which title contains keyword

We make CRUD operations & finder methods with Spring Data’s MongoRepository.

Technology

  • Java 8
  • Spring Boot 2.2.4 (with Spring Web MVC, Spring Data MongoDB)
  • MongoDB
  • Maven 3.6.1

Project Structure

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-server-project-structure

  • Tutorial data model class corresponds to entity and table tutorials.
  • TutorialRepository is an interface that extends MongoRepository for CRUD methods and custom finder methods. It will be autowired in TutorialController.
  • TutorialController is a RestController which has request mapping methods for RESTful requests such as: getAllTutorials, createTutorial, updateTutorial, deleteTutorial, findByPublished
  • Configuration for Spring Data MongoDB is in application.properties.
  • pom.xml contains dependencies for Spring Boot Web MVC and Spring Data MongoDB.

Implementation

You can find step by step to implement this Spring Boot MongoDB Server Application in the post:

Vue.js Front-end

Overview

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-vue-components

– The App component is a container with router-view. It has navbar that links to routes paths.

TutorialsList component gets and displays Tutorials.
Tutorial component has form for editing Tutorial’s details based on :id.
AddTutorial component has form for submission new Tutorial.

– These Components call TutorialDataService methods which use axios to make HTTP requests and receive responses.

Technology

  • vue: 2.6.10
  • vue-router: 3.1.3
  • axios: 0.19.0

Project Structure

spring-boot-vue-js-mongodb-crud-example-client-project-structure

package.json contains 3 main modules: vue, vue-router, axios.
– There are 3 components: TutorialsList, Tutorial, AddTutorial.
router.js defines routes for each component.
http-common.js initializes axios with HTTP base Url and headers.
TutorialDataService has methods for sending HTTP requests to the Apis.
vue.config.js configures port for this Vue Client.

Implementation

Conclusion

Now we have an overview of Spring Boot Vue.js MongoDB CRUD example when building a CRUD App that connects with MongoDB database.

We also take a look at client-server architecture for REST API using Spring Web MVC & Spring Data MongoDB, as well as Vue.js 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:
