Create a User Registration Application with Spring Boot, Spring Form Validation

View more categories:

1- Objective of Example

This guide is based on:
  • Eclipse 3.7 (Oxygen)

  • Spring Boot 2.x

  • Spring Validation

  • Thymeleaf

In this post, I will show you how to create an user registration application using Spring Boot + Spring Validation + Thymeleaf. The topics mentioned in this post include:  

  1. Create a Registration Form on Spring.
  2. Use Spring Validator to validate the user's information entered.
  3. Explain the operating principle of Spring Validator.
Preview the application:

2- Create Spring Boot project

On the  Eclipse, create Spring Boot ​​​​​​​project.
Enter:
  • Name: SbRegistrationFormValidationThymeleaf
  • Group: org.o7planning
  • Description: Spring Boot + Form Validation + Thymeleaf
  • Package: org.o7planning.sbformvalidation
Select technologies and libraries to use:
  • Security
  • Validation
  • Web
  • Thymeleaf
OK, Project đã được tạo ra.
SbRegistrationFormValidationThymeleafApplication.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation;

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

@SpringBootApplication
public class SbRegistrationFormValidationThymeleafApplication {

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

 

3- Configure pom.xml

In this example, we will use the  Commons Validation library to check whether the email entered by the user is correct or not. Therefore, it is necessary to declare this library in  pom.xml.
** Commons Validation **

4- Security, MessageSource

In this example, we don't focus on the security of application. However, we need to go to Spring Security library to be able to encode user's password before saving it to the database.  And you need to declare a Spring BEAN for encoding the password.
WebSecurityConfig.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.config;

import org.springframework.context.annotation.Bean;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Configuration;
import org.springframework.security.config.annotation.web.builders.HttpSecurity;
import org.springframework.security.config.annotation.web.configuration.EnableWebSecurity;
import org.springframework.security.config.annotation.web.configuration.WebSecurityConfigurerAdapter;
import org.springframework.security.crypto.bcrypt.BCryptPasswordEncoder;
import org.springframework.security.crypto.password.PasswordEncoder;

@Configuration
@EnableWebSecurity
public class WebSecurityConfig extends WebSecurityConfigurerAdapter {

	@Bean
	public PasswordEncoder passwordEncoder() {
		BCryptPasswordEncoder bCryptPasswordEncoder = new BCryptPasswordEncoder();
		return bCryptPasswordEncoder;
	}

	// In this example we do not use Security.
	// Override this method with empty code
	// to disable the default Spring Boot security.
	@Override
	protected void configure(HttpSecurity http) throws Exception {
		// Empty code!
	}
}
In this example, we have the  validation.properties file. This file contains error codes, used to notify to users when they enter incorrect information.
validation.properties
NotEmpty.appUserForm.userName=User name is required
NotEmpty.appUserForm.firstName=First Name is required
NotEmpty.appUserForm.lastName=Last name is required
NotEmpty.appUserForm.email=Email is required
NotEmpty.appUserForm.password=Password is required
NotEmpty.appUserForm.confirmPassword=Confirm Password is required
NotEmpty.appUserForm.gender=Gender is required
NotEmpty.appUserForm.countryCode=Country is required

Pattern.appUserForm.email=Invalid email
Duplicate.appUserForm.email=Email has been used by another account
Duplicate.appUserForm.userName=Username is not available
Match.appUserForm.confirmPassword=Password does not match the confirm password
You need to declare a  MessageResource Spring Bean, so that the Spring automatically load the contents of the  validation.properties file to memory.
WebConfiguration.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.config;

import org.springframework.context.MessageSource;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Bean;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Configuration;
import org.springframework.context.support.ReloadableResourceBundleMessageSource;
import org.springframework.web.servlet.config.annotation.EnableWebMvc;
import org.springframework.web.servlet.config.annotation.WebMvcConfigurer;

@Configuration
@EnableWebMvc
public class WebConfiguration implements WebMvcConfigurer {

	@Bean
	public MessageSource messageSource() {
		ReloadableResourceBundleMessageSource messageSource = new ReloadableResourceBundleMessageSource();
		// Load file: validation.properties
		messageSource.setBasename("classpath:validation");
		messageSource.setDefaultEncoding("UTF-8");
		return messageSource;
	}

}

5- Model, DAO

AppUser class represents for a record of   APP_USER table. It is an user  registered successfully into system.
AppUser.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.model;

public class AppUser {
    

    private Long userId;
    private String userName;
    private String firstName;
    private String lastName;
    private boolean enabled;
    private String gender;
    private String email;
    private String encrytedPassword;
    
    private String countryCode;

    public AppUser() {

    }

    public AppUser(Long userId, String userName, String firstName, String lastName, //
            boolean enabled, String gender, //
            String email,String countryCode, String encrytedPassword) {
        super();
        this.userId = userId;
        this.userName = userName;
        this.firstName = firstName;
        this.lastName = lastName;
        this.enabled = enabled;
        this.gender = gender;
        this.email = email;
        this.countryCode= countryCode;
        this.encrytedPassword = encrytedPassword;
    }

    public Long getUserId() {
        return userId;
    }

    public void setUserId(Long userId) {
        this.userId = userId;
    }

    public String getUserName() {
        return userName;
    }

    public void setUserName(String userName) {
        this.userName = userName;
    }

    public String getFirstName() {
        return firstName;
    }

    public void setFirstName(String firstName) {
        this.firstName = firstName;
    }

    public String getLastName() {
        return lastName;
    }

    public void setLastName(String lastName) {
        this.lastName = lastName;
    }

    public boolean isEnabled() {
        return enabled;
    }

    public void setEnabled(boolean enabled) {
        this.enabled = enabled;
    }

    public String getGender() {
        return gender;
    }

    public void setGender(String gender) {
        this.gender = gender;
    }

    public String getEmail() {
        return email;
    }

    public void setEmail(String email) {
        this.email = email;
    }

    public String getEncrytedPassword() {
        return encrytedPassword;
    }

    public void setEncrytedPassword(String encrytedPassword) {
        this.encrytedPassword = encrytedPassword;
    }

    public String getCountryCode() {
        return countryCode;
    }

    public void setCountryCode(String countryCode) {
        this.countryCode = countryCode;
    }

}

 
Country.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.model;

public class Country {

    private String countryCode;
    private String countryName;

    public Country() {

    }

    public Country(String countryCode, String countryName) {
        this.countryCode = countryCode;
        this.countryName = countryName;
    }

    public String getCountryCode() {
        return countryCode;
    }

    public void setCountryCode(String countryCode) {
        this.countryCode = countryCode;
    }

    public String getCountryName() {
        return countryName;
    }

    public void setCountryName(String countryName) {
        this.countryName = countryName;
    }
}
 
Gender.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.model;

public class Gender {

    public static final String MALE = "M";
    public static final String FEMALE = "F";
}

 
DAO (Data Access Object) classes are used to manipulate with data resources, such as   queryinsertupdatedelete. These classes are usually annotated by @Repository for the Spring to manage them as Spring BEANs.
AppUserDAO.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.dao;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Collection;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

        for (AppUser u : appUsers) {
            if (u.getUserName().equals(userName)) {
                return u;
            }
        }
        return null;
    }

    public AppUser findAppUserByEmail(String email) {
        Collection<AppUser> appUsers = USERS_MAP.values();

    public AppUser createAppUser(AppUserForm form) {
        Long userId = this.getMaxUserId() + 1;
        String encrytedPassword = this.passwordEncoder.encode(form.getPassword());

        AppUser user = new AppUser(userId, form.getUserName(), //

        USERS_MAP.put(userId, user);
        return user;

6- Form Bean, Validator

AppUserForm class represents for the data to be entered in a registration form by users.
AppUserForm.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.formbean;

public class AppUserForm {

    private Long userId;
    private String userName;
    private String firstName;
    private String lastName;
    private boolean enabled;
    private String gender;
    private String email;
    private String password;
    private String confirmPassword;
    private String countryCode;

    public AppUserForm() {

    }

    public AppUserForm(Long userId, String userName, //
            String firstName, String lastName, boolean enabled, //
            String gender, String email, String countryCode, //
            String password, String confirmPassword) {
        this.userId = userId;
        this.userName = userName;
        this.firstName = firstName;
        this.lastName = lastName;
        this.enabled = enabled;
        this.gender = gender;
        this.email = email;
        this.countryCode = countryCode;
        this.password = password;
        this.confirmPassword = confirmPassword;
    }

    public Long getUserId() {
        return userId;
    }

    public void setUserId(Long userId) {
        this.userId = userId;
    }

    public String getUserName() {
        return userName;
    }

    public void setUserName(String userName) {
        this.userName = userName;
    }

    public String getFirstName() {
        return firstName;
    }

    public void setFirstName(String firstName) {
        this.firstName = firstName;
    }

    public String getLastName() {
        return lastName;
    }

    public void setLastName(String lastName) {
        this.lastName = lastName;
    }

    public boolean isEnabled() {
        return enabled;
    }

    public void setEnabled(boolean enabled) {
        this.enabled = enabled;
    }

    public String getGender() {
        return gender;
    }

    public void setGender(String gender) {
        this.gender = gender;
    }

    public String getEmail() {
        return email;
    }

    public void setEmail(String email) {
        this.email = email;
    }

    public String getCountryCode() {
        return countryCode;
    }

    public void setCountryCode(String countryCode) {
        this.countryCode = countryCode;
    }

    public String getPassword() {
        return password;
    }

    public void setPassword(String password) {
        this.password = password;
    }

    public String getConfirmPassword() {
        return confirmPassword;
    }

    public void setConfirmPassword(String confirmPassword) {
        this.confirmPassword = confirmPassword;
    }
}

 
AppUserValidator class is used to validate the information entered in the form by users. Thus, the  AppUserValidator will validate the values of fields of the  AppUserForm object.
AppUserValidator.java
package org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.validator;

import org.apache.commons.validator.routines.EmailValidator;
import org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.dao.AppUserDAO;
import org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.formbean.AppUserForm;
import org.o7planning.sbformvalidation.model.AppUser;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Component;
import org.springframework.validation.Errors;
import org.springframework.validation.ValidationUtils;
import org.springframework.validation.Validator;

@Component
public class AppUserValidator implements Validator {

	// common-validator library.
	private EmailValidator emailValidator = EmailValidator.getInstance();

	@Autowired
	private AppUserDAO appUserDAO;

	// The classes are supported by this validator.
	@Override
	public boolean supports(Class<?> clazz) {
		return clazz == AppUserForm.class;
	}

	@Override
	public void validate(Object target, Errors errors) {
		AppUserForm appUserForm = (AppUserForm) target;

		// Check the fields of AppUserForm.
		ValidationUtils.rejectIfEmptyOrWhitespace(errors, "userName", "NotEmpty.appUserForm.userName");
		ValidationUtils.rejectIfEmptyOrWhitespace(errors, "firstName", "NotEmpty.appUserForm.firstName");

		if (!this.emailValidator.isValid(appUserForm.getEmail())) {
			// Invalid email.
			errors.rejectValue("email", "Pattern.appUserForm.email");
		} else if (appUserForm.getUserId() == null) {
			AppUser dbUser = appUserDAO.findAppUserByEmail(appUserForm.getEmail());
			if (dbUser != null) {
				// Email has been used by another account.
				errors.rejectValue("email", "Duplicate.appUserForm.email");
			}
		}

		if (!errors.hasFieldErrors("userName")) {
			AppUser dbUser = appUserDAO.findAppUserByUserName(appUserForm.getUserName());
			if (dbUser != null) {
				// Username is not available.
				errors.rejectValue("userName", "Duplicate.appUserForm.userName");
			}
		}

		if (!errors.hasErrors()) {
			if (!appUserForm.getConfirmPassword().equals(appUserForm.getPassword())) {
