Before we start, please take some time to review our existing application: Spring MVC 3.1, jqGrid, and Spring Data JPA Integration Guide. If all you need is a pure Spring Data Rest application, please visit the official Spring Data Rest starter web application.

Update the pom.xmlHere are the changes that we need to do:
- Update the Spring core version
- Update the Spring Data JPA version
- Add Spring Data Rest dependency
Note: I also added the profiles section at the end of the pom.xml, so that we can expose the repositories in a clean manner.
Update the web.xmlHere are the changes that we need to do:
- Update the web-app version to 2.5 (optional)
- Update the display-name (optional)
- Add Spring Data Rest servlet
Spring ConfigurationsWe need to do three tasks:
- Update the database name
- Create a spring-data-rest.xml
- Update the applicationContext.xml
Update the database nameOpen the spring.properties under WEB-INF folder, and update it as follows:
In the original application, the declared database name is spring_jqgrid_tutorial, let's update it to spring_data_rest_tutorial (though this is really not needed).
Create a spring-data-rest.xml
Update the applicationContext.xmlThere's not much update here. We just need to import the spring-data-rest.xml as follows:
RepositoriesWe need to do two tasks:
- Update UserRepository
- Create a new repository RoleRepository
The only update here is the addition of the annotation @Param to the UserRepository. This is required so that we can expose the parameters in the search queries.
We need to create a new repository for the Role domain so that we can expose it as RESTful endpoint:
NextIn the next section, we will build and run the application and test our RESTful endpoints. Click here to proceed.
