Connecting Angular to a REST Back End
Angular for Java Developers, Part 4
Matt Greencroft
  • Course duration: 3h 38m
In Angular for Java Developers Part Four: Connecting to a REST back end you’ll learn how to connect an Angular front end up with a Java (Spring Boot) based back end system using REST. You’ll also learn how to deal with slow and unavailable connections and deal with issues such as CORS for multiple-domain applications, how to set up a back end with Spring Boot, pre-processing data, and pre-fetching data.

About the subject

The Angular framework is used by millions of developers, powering frontends from simple prototypes to Google’s own web apps. Prized for its scalability, Angular also offers lightning fast speed and response times and the chance to reuse code for both web and mobile. Best of all, it can be integrated with backends built in Java.

About the video

Angular for Java Developers is a five course series that teaches Java programmers how to use Angular and JavaScript to build applications that are maintainable, testable, and secure. In Part Four, you’ll connect your front end to a back end system using REST. You’ll learn about environments, creating, configuring and testing a Spring Boot based REST API, and how to implement REST from Angular.
