Spring MVC 3.1 - Implement CRUD with Spring Data Redis (Part 6)

Review

We have just completed our application! In the previous sections, we have discussed the functional specs, created the Java classes, declared the configuration files, and wrote the HTMl files. In this section, we will build and run the application using Maven, and show how to import the project in Eclipse.


Running the Application

Access the source code

To download the source code, please visit the project's Github repository (click here)

Preparing the data source

  1. Run Redis (see Part 2 for instructions)
  2. There's no need to populate the database with sample data because our InitRedisService will insert our sample data automatically

Building with Maven

  1. Ensure Maven is installed
  2. Open a command window (Windows) or a terminal (Linux/Mac)
  3. Run the following command:
    mvn tomcat:run
  4. You should see the following output:
    [INFO] Scanning for projects...
    [INFO] Searching repository for plugin with prefix: 'tomcat'.
    [INFO] artifact org.codehaus.mojo:tomcat-maven-plugin: checking for updates from central
    [INFO] artifact org.codehaus.mojo:tomcat-maven-plugin: checking for updates from snapshots

  5. Note: If the project will not build due to missing repositories, please enable the repositories section in the pom.xml!

Access the Entry page

  1. Follow the steps with Building with Maven
  2. Open a browser
  3. Enter the following URL (8080 is the default port for Tomcat):
    http://localhost:8080/spring-redis-tutorial/

Import the project in Eclipse

  1. Ensure Maven is installed
  2. Open a command window (Windows) or a terminal (Linux/Mac)
  3. Run the following command:
    mvn eclipse:eclipse -Dwtpversion=2.0
  4. You should see the following output:
    [INFO] Scanning for projects...
    [INFO] Searching repository for plugin with prefix: 'eclipse'.
    [INFO] org.apache.maven.plugins: checking for updates from central

    This command will add the following files to your project:
    .classpath
    .project
    .settings
    target
    You may have to enable "show hidden files" in your file explorer to view them
  5. Open Eclipse and import the project

Conclusion

That's it! We've have successfully completed our Spring MVC 3.1 web application. We've learned how to setup Redis and access it through Spring Data Redis. Furthermore, we used AJAX to make the application responsive.

I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial. Don't forget to check my other tutorials at the Tutorials section.
