Part 5: Web application development using AngularJS, Spring Boot and Maven – Support for eBird APIs, HTML 5 Geolocation and Google Geocoding

In my previous post, I completed the first phase of my Bird Log application. I can use this application to view my current sightings and add new sightings. I also implemented very basic support for content filtering. In this post, I am going to use eBird APIs to display current bird sightings reported on ebird.org, near my current location. I plan to use HTML5 Geolocation APIs to find out my current location automatically and then use Google Geocoding APIs to map my current Geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) to a human-readable address.

Part 3 : Web application development using AngularJS, Spring Boot and Maven – Beautify using Bootstrap

In the previous post, I added AngularJS support to my base Spring Boot Application. In this post, I am going to integrate Bootstrap CSS and Javascript framework to make it pretty.

Configuring Bootstrap

  • Make sure that Bootstrap CSS and Javascript files are included in the application.
    Note: Bootstrap package was already downloaded using Bower. See the previous post for more details.

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="bower_components/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css" >
    

    and

    <script src="bower_components/jquery/dist/jquery.js"></script >
    <script src="bower_components/bootstrap/dist/js/bootstrap.js"></script >

Part 2 : Web application development using AngularJS, Spring Boot and Maven – Adding AngularJS support

In my previous post, I created a project for a simple web application using Spring Boot and Maven. I want to take it further and add AngularJS support to the setup.

I am an avid birder so I am going to develop a Bird Log app to log my bird sightings. Recently, I was introduced to AngularJS and have become a big fan of this framework. I am going to develop a Single Page Application (SPA) using AngularJS and Twitter Bootstrap Framework for HTML and CSS.

How to integrate Spring Framework with a Struts2 application

Integrating Spring with your web application

Using Spring Framework facilitates good, extensible design by promoting interface driven programming, ease of testing through Inversion of Control and supporting various test frameworks and much more. Integrating Spring in a Struts2 based web application is a logical next step. In this post, we will integrate the Spring Framework in the Struts2 web application started in this post – Starting Struts2 web application development (using Maven2 and Eclipse)

How to add persistence to Struts2 + Spring application using JPA and Hibernate

Introduction

In my previous post, How to integrate Spring Framework with a Struts2 application, I created a simple web application that used Struts2 and Spring. In this post, I am going to extend that application to add persistence logic using JPA (Java Persistence Architecture) and Hibernate.

I am assuming that you are already familiar with the technologies used in this post – Struts2, Spring and Hibernate.
My goal is to create a project that can be used to jumpstart a Struts2, Spring and Hibernate based development. This is not a detailed tutorial for these technologies.

My current development environment (at the time of developing this project) looks like this:

  • Maven: 2.2.1
  • Java: 1.6.0_20
  • Mac OS X 10.6.4
  • Struts: 2.1.8
  • Spring: 2.5.6
  • Hibernate: 3.4.0.GA

Create your own custom maven archetype

Creating custom maven archetype

Maven provides many archetypes to generate various types of project skeletons. This blog post explains how to create a custom archetype that is tailor-made for your own situation. We will create an archetype for the Struts2 application.
My current development environment includes:

  • Mac OS X 10.6.4
  • Maven 2.2.1
  • Java 1.6.0_20

Create your skeleton project

You need to have a starter project from which new archetype can be created. We can start with the Struts2 application created in the blog post Starting Struts2 web application development (using Maven2 and Eclipse) to create a custom archetype for Struts2 based applications. You can download the zipped source code for this project here.

Starting Struts2 web application development (using Maven2 and Eclipse)

Before you begin

  1. Follow the blog post Starting web development with Maven and Eclipse to create a web application. This blog shows how we can extend that basic web application to add Struts2 support.
  2. This blog post assumes that you are familiar with Struts2 already. If that is not the case, this would be the good time to do so. The official Apache Struts 2 website is a good place to start. Get a free copy of the mini book Starting Struts 2. Thanks to Ian Roughley and InfoQ.com for making this great mini book available for free.

Starting web development with Maven and Eclipse

Before you begin

  1. Install Apache Maven 2.2.x
  2. Install Eclipse (preferably 3.5.x version or later)
  3. Install Maven plugin for Eclipse
  4. Configure Maven plugin by going to Windows -> Preferences -> Maven. Add and use your external maven installation instead of embedded version.
