Sample To Do List web application using Spring Boot and MySQL

A simple Todo list application using Spring Boot with the following options:

  • Spring JPA and MySQL for data persistence
  • Thymeleaf templae for the rendering.

To build and run the sample from a fresh clone of this repo:

Configure MySQL

  1. Create a database in your MySQL instance.
  2. Update the file in the src/main/resources folder with the URL, username and password for your MySQL instance. The table schema for the Todo objects will be created for you in the database.

Build and run the sample

  1. mvnw package
  2. java -jar target/TodoDemo-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
  3. Open a web browser to http://localhost:8080

As you add and update tasks in the app you can verify the changes in the database through the MySQL console using simple statements like select * from todo_item.
