Spring Boot is built on the top of the spring and contains all the features of spring. And is becoming a favorite of developers these days because of its rapid production-ready environment which enables the developers to directly focus on the logic instead of struggling with the configuration and setup. Spring Boot is a microservice-based framework and making a production-ready application in it takes very little time. Java persistence API is like an interface that contains most of the methods that are used for data manipulation in the MySQL table and hibernate is the implementation of these methods, So we don’t have to create any method for inserting the data in the MySQL, Let’s discuss how to insert data in MySQL table using Spring boot and JPA.

JPARepositery<>.save() method is used for inserting the values in the MySQL table.

Step By Step Implementation

Go to Spring Initializr Fill in the details as per the requirements. Click on Generate which will download the starter project. Extract the zip file.

Pom.xml:

XML




<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
    <parent>
        <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
        <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-parent</artifactId>

        <relativePath/> <!-- lookup parent from repository -->
    </parent>
    <groupId>com.example</groupId>

    </dependencies>
 
    <build>
        <plugins>
            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
                <artifactId>spring-boot-maven-plugin</artifactId>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </build>
 
</project>


 

 

Extract the zip file. Now open a suitable IDE and then go to File->New->Project from existing sources->Springbootapp and select pom.xml. Click on import changes on prompt and wait for the project to sync

 

Note: In the Import Project for Maven window, make sure you choose the same version of JDK which you selected while creating the project.

 

For database operation we have to configure the Spring application with the database also it is required to add configuration of the database before executing the Spring project. All the configuration is added in the file application.properties of the Spring project. 

 

application.properties file:

 

spring.datasource.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/user
spring.datasource.username=root
spring.datasource.password=Aayush
spring.jpa.hibernate.ddl-auto=update 

 

Project Structure:

 

 

User.java: (Table structure of the MySQL table)

 

Java




@Entity
public class User {
    @Id
    @GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.AUTO)
    int id;
    String name;
    User() {}
    User(int id, String name)
    {
        this.id = id;
        this.name = name;
    }
}


 

 

UserRepo:(This file is used for extending the JPA methods with hibernate implementation)

 

Java




import org.springframework.data.jpa.repository.JpaRepository;
 
interface UserRepo extends JpaRepository<User,Integer> {
   
}


 

 

SpringBootAppApplication:

 

Java




@SpringBootApplication
public class SpringBootAppApplication
    implements CommandLineRunner {
    @Autowired UserRepo ob;
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        SpringApplication.run(SpringBootAppApplication.class, args);
    }
 
    @Override
    public void run(String... args) throws Exception
    {
        // Inserting the data in the mysql table.
        User first = new User(1, "Aayush");
        // ob.save() method
        ob.save(first);
    }
}


 

 

Run the main application:
