Spring MVC + Spring Data + Hibernate + MySQL example


In this post, we are going to see integration of Spring MVC,Spring Data,hibernate and mysql CRUD example.
We have already seen Spring MVC, hibernate and mysql example in previous tutorial.
Spring Data JPA provides CRUD API, so you don’t have to write boiler plate code. You just need to create repository interface and spring will provide implementation automatically.

Spring MVC tutorial:

Here are steps to create a project with Spring MVC , Spring data, hibernate and mySQL crud example.

Source code:

1) Create a dynamic web project using maven in eclipse named “SpringMVCSpringDataHibernateExample”

Maven dependencies

2) We will use Spring 4 and hibernate 4 for this project.


Spring application configuration:

3) Change web.xml as below:

4) create a xml file named spring-servlet.xml in /WEB-INF/ folder.
Please change context:component-scan if you want to use different package for spring to search for controller.Please refer to spring mvc hello world example for more understanding.

In Spring-servlet.xml, we have done hibernate and spring data configuration.
dataSource bean is used to specify java data source. We need to provide driver, URL , Username and Password.
transactionManager bean is used to configure hibernate transaction manager.

Create a applicationcontext.xml in WEB-INF folder, this file is used for bean configuration as we are using spring-servlet.xml for bean configuration , we will keep this file empty.

Create bean class

4) Create a bean name “Country.java” in org.arpit.java2blog.bean.

@Entity is used for making a persistent pojo class.For this java class,you will have corresponding table in database. @Column is used to map annotated attribute to corresponding column in table. So Create Country table in mysql database with following code:

Create Controller

5) Create a controller named “CountryController.java” in package org.arpit.java2blog.controller

Create Repository interface

Create a interface called CountryRepository.java in package org.arpit.java2blog.repository.  You don’t have to provide implementation of this interface. Spring automatically provides implementation of common methods such as save, delete , findOne once you extends to CrudRepository Interface.

CrudRepository has two generic argument.
Country: It is for what type of entity you are going to save in database.
Integer :  It is datatype of identifier for entity object.

Create Service class

6) Create a class CountryService.java in package org.arpit.java2blog.service
It is service level class. It will call DAO layer class.

@Service is specialised component annotation which is used to create bean at Service layer.

Create view

Create view called countryDetails.jsp in WEB-INF/view/ folder.

8) It ‘s time to do maven build.

Right click on project -> Run as -> Maven build

Maven build in eclipse
9) Provide goals as clean install (given below) and click on run
Maven build in eclipse

Run the application

10) Right click on project -> run as -> run on server
Select apache tomcat and click on finish
11)  Now lets hit below URL to getAllCountries.
You will get below screen:

Empty Country List Spring MVC hibernate

As you can see, we did not add any country to the list, so it is empty.
Lets add Country named India to country list and click submit.
Similarly we will add China , Bhutan and Nepal respectively and you will see below screen.

All Country List Spring MVC hibernate

Lets edit population of Bhutan to 15000. Click on edit button corresponds to Bhutan.

When you click on submit, you will get below screen.

Lets delete country China from above list, click on delete button corresponds to 2nd row.
You will see below screen.

As you can see, china got deleted from above list.

Project structure

Spring MVC Spring data project structure

We are done with Spring MVC, Spring data hibernate MySQL CRUD example. If you are still facing any issue, please comment.
