We're available to answer all questions at support@stormpath.com.


This is a simple web app integrated with Stormpath supporting an Angular rich client UI.

You can see the example live here.

You can even deploy it to your own Heroku account: Deploy



mvn clean install


java -jar target/*.jar


Browser to localhost:8080 and you will see the Angular SPA.

You can create a Stormpath Account and then login, at which point the app will address you by name.


The included Angular app is served as a set of static pages that make use of the Stormpath Angular SDK.

The Angular app makes GET requests to the Spring Boot app to get view models for rendering, such as the login and register models.

It also makes POST requests to the Spring Boot app for perform operations like logging in and registering.

By default, The Angular app will handle routing. However, if someone bookmarks a page or does a force-refresh, it will cause a request to be sent to the Spring Boot app.

There's a single controller defined in the project: AngularController. It's only job is to ensure that requests to common auth endpoints (such as /login and /register) forward back to the Angular app.

We ensure tha that the Spring Boot app will not attempt to serve text/html requests for the auth endpoints by adding:

stormpath.web.produces = application/json

to the application.properties file. (The default is: stormpath.web.produces = application/json, text/html) This instructs the Stormpath Spring Boot integration to only handle application/json requests with the built-in auth endpoints and to let text/html requests pass through to this Spring Boot application. The AngularController has the path definitions for handling those auth endpoints.
