In this article, I will explain how to build a Spring Web application development environment using VS Code. The procedure is as follows.
As a prerequisite, VS Code requires a Java runtime environment, so if you haven't done so yet, please refer to the article Building a Java program development environment with Visual Studio Code.
Open the extension search screen with
Ctrl + Shift + x, search for and install the
Spring Boot Extension Pack extension.
Open the command palette in the order of
command palette in VS Code
Shortcut key: Ctrl + Shift + P
spring: and select
Spring Initializr Generate a Maven Project
Enter the package name-> ʻEnter`
Enter the project name-> ʻEnter`
Select Spring Boot version
Select the dependencies required for Spring web application development here
Since this article explains it as a simple example, add only
Spring Web and
--Add Spring Web
After adding the above two dependencies, it will be
selecled 2 dependencies, click on it
Select a save destination
A Spring project named
demo has been created
Create Controller class in package with XXApplication.java
In my case:
src / main / java / com / example / demo / DemoApplication.java
Select Package-> Right Click-> New File-> DemoController.java-> ʻEnter`
DemoController class is created Edit the contents of DemoController.java
Create HTML file under resources / templates Right click on templates-> New file-> index.html-> ʻEnter`
Edit the contents of html appropriately Example: If you want to create HTML using bootstrap4, refer to How to write html + bootstrap4 in Visual Studio Code. Open screen: http: // localhost: 8080 The index method of the control class is called and the contents of index.html are displayed on the screen, right? With this, the Spring Web development environment construction is successful.
In future articles, I will write about DB connection, adding other dependencies, editing design files, etc.
