In this tutorial, I am going to show how to create a Spring Boot MVC application.

Spring Boot MVC :

Here we are going to use the below technologies:

  • Spring.4.3.7.RELEASE
  • SpringBoot 1.4.5.RELEASE
  • Java 8

Project Structure :

A typical Maven project directory structure.

Spring boot MVC
pom.xml

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

</project>

Spring Controller :

It’s a typical spring login form controller.

LoginController.java
package com.onlinetutorialspoint.spring.boot;

import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
import org.springframework.ui.Model;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.ModelAttribute;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMethod;

import com.onlinetutorialspoint.bean.LoginBean;

@Controller
public class LoginController {
    @RequestMapping(value = "login", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String init(Model model) {
        model.addAttribute("msg", "Please Enter Your Login Details");
        return "login.jsp";
    }

    @RequestMapping(method = RequestMethod.POST)
    public String submit(Model model,
            @ModelAttribute("loginBean") LoginBean loginBean) {
        if (loginBean != null && loginBean.getUserName() != null
                & loginBean.getPassword() != null) {
            if (loginBean.getUserName().equals("chandra")
                    && loginBean.getPassword().equals("chandra123")) {
                model.addAttribute("msg", loginBean.getUserName());
                return "success.jsp";
            } else {
                model.addAttribute("error", "Invalid Details");
                return "login.jsp";
            }
        } else {
            model.addAttribute("error", "Please enter Details");
            return "login.jsp";
        }
    }
}

Model Bean :

LoginBean.java
package com.onlinetutorialspoint.bean;

public class LoginBean {

    private String userName;
    private String password;

    public String getUserName() {
        return userName;
    }

    public void setUserName(String userName) {
        this.userName = userName;
    }

    public String getPassword() {
        return password;
    }

    public void setPassword(String password) {
        this.password = password;
    }

}

Preparing View:

login.jsp

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=UTF-8"
pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<%@taglib uri="http://www.springframework.org/tags/form" prefix="form"%>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>Spring Login Form</title>
</head>
<body>
<form:form name="submitForm" method="POST">

<div align="center">
<table>
<tr>
<td>User Name</td>
<td><input type="text" name="userName" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Password</td>
<td><input type="password" name="password" /></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td></td>
<td><input type="submit" value="Submit" /></td>
</tr>
</table>
<div style="color: red">${error}</div>

</div>
</form:form>
</body>
</html>

Preparing a success view :

success.jsp
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=UTF-8"

pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<html>

<head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<title>Success Form</title>

</head>

<body>

<font color="green"><h2>Hello</h2></font>

<h3>${msg}</h3> You have successfully logged in.

<font color="green"><h3>Welcome to Spring Boot World !</h3></font>

</body>

</html>

Spring Boot Application class :

Application.java
package com.onlinetutorialspoint.spring.boot;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.builder.SpringApplicationBuilder;
import org.springframework.boot.context.web.SpringBootServletInitializer;

@SpringBootApplication
public class Application {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        SpringApplication.run(Application.class, args);
    }
}

@SpringBootApplication annotation tells to Spring Boot; this is a starting point of our Spring Boot Application.

SpringApplication is a class which is coming from org.springframework.boot. This class can be used to bootstrap and launch the spring application using the Java main method.

SpringApplication.run(Application.class, args) is a static method in SpringApplication class, which accepts two arguments. First one is a class which is the main class of Spring boot, and another one is arguments which can be passed to the main method. When we run this class the SpringApplication class does many things for us :

  • It sets up the default configurations for Spring application.
  • It starts the Spring application context.
  • Performs the Classpath scan (Loads all spring annotated classes).
  • And finally, start the Tomcat Server.

Yes, we are done with the Spring Boot MVC login example. Now time to run the application. We can run the Spring Boot application like as simple as Java standalone application (by running the main method).

You can access your application by bit the below URL on your favourite browser.

http://localhost:8080/login

Now you can see the login page like below.

Spring Boot Mvc Login

Success page :

Spring Boot Mvc success
