Angular 7 + Spring Boot CRUD Example

In previous tutorial we had implemented - Angular 7 + Spring Boot Hello World Example. We exposed REST endpoint using Spring Boot and consumed this endpoint using Angular 7 application and displayed the data.
In this tutorial we will be implementing CRUD operations using Angular 7 + Spring Boot. We will also be adding the header with menu and footer to our application. So following will be the components on our page.
angular 7 project components
In the next tutorial we will be implementing session management for this application and create a login and logout page.
Previously we have seen what is PCF and how to deploy application to PCF.. I have deployed this application we are developing to PCF.

This tutorial is explained in the below Youtube Video.

The code we had developed in previous application for Angular 7 + Spring Boot Application Hello World Example will be the starting point for this tutorial.
  • Spring Boot Application

    Previous application we had created a simple spring boot application which exposed a REST endpoint for fetching a list of employees. In this tutorial we will be adding 2 more REST endpoints - One for creating an employee and other for deleting it.
    package com.javainuse.controllers;
    import java.util.ArrayList;
    import java.util.List;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.CrossOrigin;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.DeleteMapping;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.GetMapping;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.PathVariable;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.PostMapping;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestBody;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
    import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;
    import com.javainuse.model.Employee;
    @CrossOrigin(origins = "http://localhost:4200")
    @RequestMapping({ "/employees" })
    public class TestController {
    	private List<Employee> employees = createList();
    	@GetMapping(produces = "application/json")
    	public List<Employee> firstPage() {
    		return employees;
    	@DeleteMapping(path = { "/{id}" })
    	public Employee delete(@PathVariable("id") int id) {
    		Employee deletedEmp = null;
    		for (Employee emp : employees) {
    			if (emp.getEmpId().equals(id)) {
    				deletedEmp = emp;
    		return deletedEmp;
    	public Employee create(@RequestBody Employee user) {
    		return user;
    	private static List<Employee> createList() {
    		List<Employee> tempEmployees = new ArrayList<>();
    		Employee emp1 = new Employee();
    		Employee emp2 = new Employee();
    		return tempEmployees;

Angular 7 development

The angular project we will be developing is as follows-
angular 7 crud project
  • Modify existing HtppClient Service

    We modify the HttpClient service to add methods for performing add new employee and deleting employee in addition to getting the list of employees using the httpClient.
    import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
    import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';
    export class Employee{
        public empId:string,
        public name:string,
        public designation:string,
        public salary:string,
      ) {}
      providedIn: 'root'
    export class HttpClientService {
        private httpClient:HttpClient
      ) { 
        console.log("test call");
        return this.httpClient.get<Employee[]>('http://localhost:8080/employees');
      public deleteEmployee(employee) {
        return this.httpClient.delete<Employee>("http://localhost:8080/employees" + "/"+ employee.empId);
      public createEmployee(employee) {
        return<Employee>("http://localhost:8080/employees", employee);

  • Adding BootStrap CSS

    In the style.css add the bootstrap css url-
    /* You can add global styles to this file, and also import other style files */
    @import url(
  • Modify existing employee component to add delete functionality

    In the employee.component.ts file add a call for deleting the employee in addition to getting the list of employees.
    import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
    import { HttpClientService, Employee } from '../service/http-client.service';
      selector: 'app-employee',
      templateUrl: './employee.component.html',
      styleUrls: ['./employee.component.css']
    export class EmployeeComponent implements OnInit {
      employees: Employee[];
        private httpClientService: HttpClientService
      ) { }
      ngOnInit() {
         response =>{this.employees = response;}
      deleteEmployee(employee: Employee): void {
          .subscribe( data => {
            this.employees = this.employees.filter(u => u !== employee);
    We will be displaying the list of employees in employee.component.html and give users option to delete the employee.
      <div class="col-md-6">
      <table class="table table-striped">
          <tr *ngFor="let employee of employees">
              <td><button class="btn btn-danger" (click)="deleteEmployee(employee)"> Delete Employee</button></td>
    Now if we go to localhost:4200
    angular 7 delete
  • Creating the add employee component

    We will be creating a new component named add-employee
    	ng generate component add-employee

    angular generate add employee component
    Modify the add-employee.component.ts to make call to spring boot for creating new employee using the httpClientService which is injected in the class using constructor injection.
    import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
    import { HttpClientService, Employee } from '../service/http-client.service';
      selector: 'app-add-employee',
      templateUrl: './add-employee.component.html',
      styleUrls: ['./add-employee.component.css']
    export class AddEmployeeComponent implements OnInit {
      user: Employee = new Employee("","","","");
        private httpClientService: HttpClientService
      ) { }
      ngOnInit() {
      createEmployee(): void {
            .subscribe( data => {
              alert("Employee created successfully.");
    Modify the add-employee.component.html to create form for getting the new employee details for the employee object to be created.
    <div class="col-md-6">
    <h2 class="text-center">Add Employee</h2>
      <div class="form-group">
        <label for="name">Name:</label>
        <input type="name" [(ngModel)]="" placeholder="Name" name="name" class="form-control" id="name">
      <div class="form-group">
        <label for="designation">Designation:</label>
        <input [(ngModel)]="user.designation" placeholder="Designation" name="designation" class="form-control" id="designation">
      <div class="form-group">
        <label for="empId">Employee Id</label>
        <input [(ngModel)]="user.empId" placeholder="Employee Id" name="Employee Id" class="form-control" id="employeeid">
      <button class="btn btn-success" (click)="createEmployee()">Create</button>
    Since we are using ngModel directive, we will need to add the FormsModule in the app.module.ts- If this is not done you will get an exception as follows - Can't bind to 'ngModel' since it isn't a known property of 'input'. ("
    	import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    import { EmployeeComponent } from './employee/employee.component';
    import { HttpClientModule } from '@angular/common/http';
    import { AddEmployeeComponent } from './add-employee/add-employee.component';
    import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
    import { HeaderComponent } from './header/header.component';
    import { FooterComponent } from './footer/footer.component';
      declarations: [
      imports: [
      providers: [],
      bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    export class AppModule { }
    In the app.routing.js add the route for this add employee component
    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { Routes, RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
    import { EmployeeComponent } from './employee/employee.component';
    import { AddEmployeeComponent } from './add-employee/add-employee.component';
    const routes: Routes = [
      { path:'', component: EmployeeComponent},
      { path:'addemployee', component: AddEmployeeComponent},
      imports: [RouterModule.forRoot(routes)],
      exports: [RouterModule]
    export class AppRoutingModule { }
    Go to localhost:8080/addemployee
    angular 7 add
  • Creating the header menu

    Create new header component-
    	ng generate component header

    angular generate header component
    Modify the header.component.html to create the menu with links to the view employees and add new employee pages.
      <nav class ="navbar navbar-expand-md navbar-dark bg-dark">
      <div><a href="" class="navbar-brand">JavaInUse</a></div>
      <ul class="navbar-nav">
        <li><a  routerLink="/" class="nav-link">View Employees</a></li>
        <li><a  routerLink="/addemployee" class="nav-link">Add New Employee</a></li>
  • Create Footer Component

    Create a new component named footer-
    ng generate component footer

    angular generate footer component
    In the footer specify the data-
    <footer class="footer">
      <div class="container">
          <span class="text-muted">All Rights Reserved 2019 @JavaInUse</span>
    Modify the footer.component.css-
        .footer {
        position: absolute;
        bottom: 0;
        height: 40px;
        background-color: #222222;
  • Modify the app.component.html to add the footer and menu to the application byadding the selector tags.
    Go to localhost:4200
    angular 7 menu
