Integrate MongoDB to your Spring project

This article shows how to integrate MongoDB to your spring project through annotation configuration.

We will begin with our Gradle configuration.

group 'com.gkatzioura.spring'
version '1.0-SNAPSHOT'


buildscript {
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-gradle-plugin:1.2.7.RELEASE")
    }
}

apply plugin: 'java'
apply plugin: 'eclipse'
apply plugin: 'idea'
apply plugin: 'spring-boot'

jar {
    baseName = 'mdb-spring-boot'
    version =  '0.1.0'
}

repositories {
    mavenCentral()
}

sourceCompatibility = 1.8
targetCompatibility = 1.8

dependencies {


    compile("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-web")


    compile('com.googlecode.json-simple:json-simple:1.1.1')
    compile("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-actuator")
    compile("org.springframework.data:spring-data-mongodb:1.8.0.RELEASE")
    compile("ch.qos.logback:logback-classic:1.1.3")
    compile("ch.qos.logback:logback-core:1.1.3")
    compile("org.json:json:20150729")
    compile("com.google.code.gson:gson:2.4")

    compile("org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.12")

    testCompile("junit:junit")
    testCompile('org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-test')
}

task wrapper(type: Wrapper) {
    gradleVersion = '2.3'
}

We will proceed with the MongoDB configuration using spring annotations.

package com.gkatzioura.spring.config;

import com.mongodb.MongoClient;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Bean;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Configuration;
import org.springframework.data.mongodb.MongoDbFactory;
import org.springframework.data.mongodb.core.MongoTemplate;
import org.springframework.data.mongodb.core.SimpleMongoDbFactory;

import java.net.UnknownHostException;

/**
 * Created by oSeven3 on 21/10/2015.
 */
@Configuration
public class MongoDbConfiguration {

    public @Bean MongoDbFactory getMongoDbFactory() throws UnknownHostException {
        return new SimpleMongoDbFactory(new MongoClient("localhost",27017),"mongotest");
    }

    public @Bean(name = "mongoTemplate") MongoTemplate getMongoTemplate() throws UnknownHostException {

        MongoTemplate mongoTemplate = new MongoTemplate(getMongoDbFactory());
        return mongoTemplate;
    }

}

Next we will define our model.
We shall create the Location model which will contain the latitude longitude.

package com.gkatzioura.spring.persistence.entities;

import org.springframework.data.annotation.Id;
import org.springframework.data.mongodb.core.mapping.Document;

import java.math.BigDecimal;
import java.util.Date;
import java.util.UUID;

@Document(collection = "location")
public class Location {

    @Id
    private String id;
    private BigDecimal latitude;
    private BigDecimal longitude;
    private Date timestamp;

    public String getId() {
        return id;
    }

    public void setId(String id) {
        this.id = id;
    }

    public BigDecimal getLatitude() {
        return latitude;
    }

    public void setLatitude(BigDecimal latitude) {
        this.latitude = latitude;
    }

    public BigDecimal getLongitude() {
        return longitude;
    }

    public void setLongitude(BigDecimal longitude) {
        this.longitude = longitude;
    }

    public Date getTimestamp() {
        return timestamp;
    }

    public void setTimestamp(Date timestamp) {
        this.timestamp = timestamp;
    }
}

Then we shall create our repository

package com.gkatzioura.spring.persistence.repositories;

import com.gkatzioura.spring.persistence.entities.Location;
import org.springframework.data.repository.CrudRepository;

import java.util.UUID;

public interface LocationRepository extends CrudRepository<Location,String> {
}

Then we shall define our controller

package com.gkatzioura.spring.controller;

import com.gkatzioura.spring.persistence.entities.Location;
import com.gkatzioura.spring.persistence.repositories.LocationRepository;
import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.*;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

import java.io.IOException;

/**
 * Created by oSeven3 on 21/10/2015.
 */

@RestController
@RequestMapping("/location")
public class LocationController {

    @Autowired
    private LocationRepository locationRepository;

    private static final Logger LOGGER = LoggerFactory.getLogger(LocationRepository.class);

    @RequestMapping(value = "/",method = RequestMethod.POST)
    @ResponseBody
    public String post(@RequestBody Location location) {

        locationRepository.save(location);

        return "OK";
    }

    @RequestMapping(value = "/",method = RequestMethod.GET)
    @ResponseBody
    public List<Location> get() {

        List<Location> locations = new ArrayList<>();
        locationRepository.findAll().forEach(l->locations.add(l));
        return locations;
    }

}

Last but not least our Application class

package com.gkatzioura.spring;

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

/**
 * Created by gkatziourasemmanouil on 8/15/15.
 */
@SpringBootApplication
public class Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(Application.class, args);
    }

}

In order to run just run

gradle bootRun
