To simplify development and deployment, you want everything in the same artifact, so you put your Angular app “inside” your Spring Boot app, right? But what if you could create your Angular app as a standalone app and make cross-origin requests to your API? A client app that can point to any server makes it easy to test your current client code against other servers (e.g. test, staging, production). This workshop shows how to develop with Java 8, Spring Boot, Angular 4, and TypeScript. You’ll learn how to create REST endpoints with Spring MVC, Spring Data REST, configure Spring Boot to allow CORS, and create an Angular app to display its data. If time allows we’ll cover microservices, security/authentication, continuous integration, and deployment to Cloud Foundry.
Prerequisites: Java 8, Maven 3.5.0, Node.js 6.9.5, Chrome (higher versions ok)
