Spring Boot and Single-Page Applications: Integrate Your Microservice Securely with Your Single-Page Application


Introduction price of $2.99 – Limited Time

Learn to integrate your Spring Boot application with a single-page application securely in an actionable and hands-on approach within just a few hours!

In this custom tailored learning plan you get a head start and learn 4 commonly used ways to integrate your Spring Boot backend with your single-page application and secure it.

In just a few hours, you will know how to implement 4 different types of integration and are ready to make better decisions when applying these principles in your context. You’ve been there and done that already while other developers are still wading through hundreds of pages of a fluffy compendium and still having no clue of how to solve the problem.

You learn best by coding. The way I love learning too.

What you will build:
We’ll put a single-page application written in Angular 4 and Typescript as an Admin UI on top of the microservice built in my book “Spring Boot: How To Get Started and Build a Microservice”. However, you don’t need to know it. We will extend it with a single operation which teaches how to implement Pagination and integrate it with a single-page application securely in 4 different ways.

The focus is on the integration and security on the side of Spring Boot.

What you will learn:

  • How to secure your API in Spring Boot 1.5.x
  • How to use pagination for huge lists in your API
  • How to protect your API with basic auth
  • How to use Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) with Spring Boot
  • How to implement JSON Web Tokens (JWT) in Spring Security
  • How to use stateful authentication for your API and UI
  • How to protect your application against Cross-Site-Request-Forgery (CSRF)
  • How to make better decission when to use which integration type

This book is for you when

  • you have a basic understanding of Spring Boot and want to add a UI on top
  • when you are new to single-page applications with Spring backends
  • you read my Spring Boot starting book and want to continue learning

It is NOT for you if

  • you like reading fluffy compendiums
  • you have not worked with Spring Boot (learn Spring Boot with my other book and come back)
  • you don’t know the Java language at all

And if you have questions, do not hesitate and contact me using the email address at the end of the book. I am glad to help out.

Oracle Application Express 5.1 Basics & Beyond: A practical guide to rapidly develop data-centric web applications accessible from desktop, laptops, tablets, and smartphones


You will find stuff about workspace, application, page, and so on in every APEX book. But this book is unique because the information it contains is not available anywhere else! Unlike other books, it adopts a stimulating approach to reveal almost every feature necessary for the beginners of Oracle APEX and also takes them beyond the basics.

As a technology enthusiast I write on a variety of new technologies, but writing books on Oracle Application Express is my passion. The blood pumping comments I get from my readers on Amazon (and in my inbox) are the main forces that motivate me to write a book whenever a new version of Oracle APEX is launched. This is my fifth book on Oracle APEX (and the best so far) written after discovering the latest 5.1 version. As usual, I’m sharing my personal learning experience through this book to expose this unique rapid web application development platform.

In Oracle Application Express you can build robust web applications. The new version is launched with some more prolific tools to maximize developers’ productivity. Once again, I’ve left out the boring bits and have adopted the same practical inspirational approach that has exposed the anatomy of Oracle Application Express to thousands of beginners in the past.

The most convincing way to explore a technology is to apply it to a real world problem. In this book, you’ll develop a sales web application that not only reveals the anatomy of Oracle Application Express, but at the same time provides hands-on techniques that build a solid foundation for you to become a web developer.

Since there are lots of changes in the new version, all content has been revised to slot in these changes, including the features new to version 5.1. The short list below summarizes the features of Oracle APEX 5.1 covered in this book:

  • Hands-on exposure to the new features, such as Interactive Grid, Oracle JET Charts, the new declarative Master-Detail-Detail capabilities, dozens of new properties, and new development procedures
  • Teaches how to rapidly develop data-centric web application for desktops, laptops, tablets, and latest smartphones
  • Produce highly formatted PDF reports, including invoices, grouped reports, and pivot tables (not covered in any other APEX book)
  • Design and implement a comprehensive custom security module (unique to this book)
  • Step-by-step instructions to create mobile version of the application using existing desktop application pages (not covered in any other beginner’s guide)

This is a concise yet a concrete book on Oracle Application Express, written for those who want to become web application developers. The sticky inspirational approach adopted in this book not only exposes the technology, but also draws you in and keeps your interest up till the last exercise. I’m grateful to all my readers whose helpful feedback enabled me to further polish my work in this edition.

Special offer! For those who are new to SQL or those who want to strengthen their SQL knowledge, I’m providing my e-book “SQL – The Shortest Route For beginners” with this book for FREE!
