SpringBoot webservices full example

SpringBoot is a really efficient framework for creating webservices and much more. For this reason I’m using it to design my backend applications.

This framework is also well referenced on Internet and many people are downloading it and using it. All of this sounds really good and you will see you can make a webservice in less than 5 minutes following the many examples existing on Internet. As usually in this kind of technology once you have made the classical HelloWorld and university classical practices you have a lot of difficulties to make your first real program coupling different simple use-cases.

Access to a remote mongodb with mac OsX client

I needed to access a mongodb instance to manage my collections. I was looking for something like phpmyadmin for mongo but the first tool I found was mongoclient.

This tool is an application for desktop provided for many OS including mac OsX. The quality of the tool is really good.

The mongodb was installed on my server remotely and protected by a firewall so the easiest way to access it was to open a ssh tunnel. Mongoclient is supposed to manage the ssh tunnel in the application but it was not working for me so I had to manually connect the tunnel :

ssh -L 27017:localhost:27017 -p 22 user@mongodb.server.com

Once connected it is possible to create a localhost connection with mongoclient.
