spring boot connect to xampp mysql

  1. First, you need to include the MySQL dependency in your Spring Boot application's pom.xml file.

  2. Then, configure the application.properties file to provide the database connection details such as URL, username, and password.

  3. Create a DataSource bean in the Spring Boot application to establish the connection with the MySQL database.

  4. Use the JdbcTemplate or Spring Data JPA to interact with the MySQL database and perform CRUD operations.

  5. Ensure that the XAMPP MySQL server is up and running and that the necessary database and tables are created.

  6. Finally, test the connection by running your Spring Boot application and executing database operations to verify that the connection to XAMPP MySQL is successful.
