Hello World REST Service with Spring boot

Recently I tried creating RESTful service with Spring Boot.  Its very easy to create RESTful service using Spring Boot, and also it removes lots of boilerplate code.

I will be walking through creating a simple hello world service. I have used Intellij Idea 15 and Java SDK 1.8, Maven 4.0.0 to build and run the project.

Lets start by creating a maven based project in Intellij. Specified required  SDK, groupId, artifactId and project name.

Now create a directory named "hello" under src->main->java.  Create a new Java class named HelloController (under directory 'hello'). Add below code to HelloController.Java

package hello;

import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

public class HelloController {
    public String sayHello() {
        return "Hello World with Spring Boot !!!";
Your hello REST controller is ready now.
Create Application.Java file under src->main->java->hello directory. Update with below code.

package hello;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

public class Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {, args);

locate your pom.xml it should be under parent directory of project.
Update pom.xml with below dependencies.





Now to run the application, create application run configuration. Select project and click on edit configuration (Under Run menu). Add new configuration for "Application", for Main class select hello.Application. Set the working directory as project root and OK.

Now run the application and go to your browser and hit "http://localhost:8080/hello"

You should see the service returns with "Hello World with Spring Boot!!!".

Exception handling with RestTemplate

Spring framework offers RestTemplate for consuming RESTful services. Recently I used RestTemplate for consuming one of the third party RESTful service.

RestTemplate offers 'ResponseErrorHandler'; which you can extend to decide which are errors for you and how to handle those error. You can override hasError and handleError methods of ResponseErrorHandler.
In handleError you can throw customException if you want, as outlined in below code.

import org.springframework.http.HttpStatus; import org.springframework.http.client.ClientHttpResponse; import org.springframework.web.client.ResponseErrorHandler; import; public class RestTemplateErrorHandler implements ResponseErrorHandler { @Override public void handleError(ClientHttpResponse response) throws IOException { throw new MyCustomException(response.getStatusText(), response.getStatusCode()); } @Override public boolean hasError(ClientHttpResponse response) throws IOException …
