Angular 17 standalone /Java webapp demo


Hello guys, how are you? Welcome back on my blog. To demonstrate a web application using Angular 17 standalone components and a Java backend, I’ll walk you through the steps and provide basic examples of how you might structure such a project. The Angular standalone components feature simplifies the Angular architecture by removing the necessity for NgModules, making it more straightforward to manage and develop applications.

Angular 17 came and Bootstrap 5 also. If you are new then you must check below two links:

Project Setup

  1. Backend (Java) Setup:
  • Framework: Spring Boot (widely used for microservices)
  • Build tool: Maven or Gradle
  • Dependencies: Spring Web, Spring Data JPA (for database access)
  1. Frontend (Angular 17) Setup:
  • Framework: Angular 17
  • Build tool: Angular CLI

Java Backend

Step 1: Initialize a Spring Boot Project

Step 2: Create a Simple REST Controller

public class MessageController {
    public ResponseEntity<List<String>> getMessages() {
        return ResponseEntity.ok(Arrays.asList("Hello", "Angular", "and", "Java"));

Angular 17 Frontend

Angular 17 introduces standalone components, which allow you to create Angular applications without the need for an NgModule.

Step 1: Set Up Angular Project

  • Install Angular CLI: npm install -g @angular/cli
  • Create a new project: ng new angular-java-demo --no-create-application
  • Navigate into your project and generate a standalone component: cd angular-java-demo and ng generate component Messages --standalone

Step 2: Create the Messages Component

Here’s a simple standalone component in Angular 17:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';

  selector: 'app-messages',
  template: `
      <li *ngFor="let message of messages">{{ message }}</li>
  styleUrls: ['./messages.component.css']
export class MessagesComponent implements OnInit {
  messages: string[] = [];

  constructor(private http: HttpClient) {}

  ngOnInit(): void {
      next: (data) => this.messages = data,
      error: (err) => console.error(err),

Step 3: Update the app.component.html

Replace the content with:


Step 4: Serve the Angular Application

  • Run ng serve to start the Angular development server.

Running the Demo

  1. Start the Spring Boot application from your IDE or the command line (./mvnw spring-boot:run or ./gradlew bootRun).
  2. Serve the Angular application with ng serve.
  3. Access the Angular app in your browser at http://localhost:4200 to see the messages fetched from the Java backend.

Guys this setup provides a simple demonstration of using Angular 17 standalone components with a Java Spring Boot backend, showcasing a lightweight, module-free Angular component interacting with a RESTful service provided by Spring Boot.

Guys if you will have any kind of query, suggestion and requirements then feel free to comment below.

Note: Friends, I just tell the basic setup and things, you can change the code according to your requirements.
