Entity - create a new CzechIdM entity and its management

This tutorial shows, how to add a new agenda for reading, creating, editing and deleting a new entity. Source code for this tutorial can be found in the example module:

We start from the persistence layer - add a new entity ExampleProduct, which will persist data for our example. Entity and property names should fit conventions. Example product will have unique code (Codeable), which can be used in REST endpoints as identifier alias - uuid or code can be used as example product identifier. Price can be null (product is for free).

Entity

/**
 * Product: 
 * - with unique code
 * - can be disabled (e.g. not available)
 * - price can be {@code null} - product is for free
 */
@Entity
@Table(name = "example_product", indexes = { 
		@Index(name = "ux_example_product_code", columnList = "code", unique = true),
		@Index(name = "idx_example_product_name", columnList = "name")
})
public class ExampleProduct extends AbstractEntity implements Disableable, Codeable {
 
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
 
	@Audited
	@NotEmpty
	@Size(min = 0, max = DefaultFieldLengths.NAME)
	@Column(name = "code", length = DefaultFieldLengths.NAME, nullable = false)
	private String code;
 
	@Audited
	@NotEmpty
	@Size(min = 0, max = DefaultFieldLengths.NAME)
	@Column(name = "name", length = DefaultFieldLengths.NAME, nullable = false)
	private String name;
 
	@Audited
	@Size(max = DefaultFieldLengths.DESCRIPTION)
	@Column(name = "description", length = DefaultFieldLengths.DESCRIPTION)
	private String description;
 
	@Audited
	@Column(name = "double_value", nullable = true, precision = 38, scale = 4)
	private BigDecimal price;
 
	@Audited
	@NotNull
	@Column(name = "disabled", nullable = false)
	private boolean disabled;
 
        ... getters and setters
}

Flyway script

We are using flyway scripts to update database schema. To persist the new entity to product_example table we add change script with name by convention to path <module>/src/main/resources/eu/bcvsolutions/idm/example/sql/postgresql:

CREATE TABLE example_product
(
  id bytea NOT NULL,
  created TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIME zone NOT NULL,
  creator CHARACTER VARYING(255) NOT NULL,
  creator_id bytea,
  modified TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIME zone,
  modifier CHARACTER VARYING(255),
  modifier_id bytea,
  original_creator CHARACTER VARYING(255),
  original_creator_id bytea,
  original_modifier CHARACTER VARYING(255),
  original_modifier_id bytea,
  realm_id bytea,
  transaction_id bytea,
  code CHARACTER VARYING(255) NOT NULL,
  description CHARACTER VARYING(2000),
  disabled BOOLEAN NOT NULL,
  name CHARACTER VARYING(255) NOT NULL,
  double_value NUMERIC(38,4),
  CONSTRAINT example_product_pkey PRIMARY KEY (id),
  CONSTRAINT ux_example_product_code UNIQUE (code)
);
 
CREATE INDEX idx_example_product_name
  ON example_product
  USING btree
  (name);
 
CREATE TABLE example_product_a
(
  id bytea NOT NULL,
  rev BIGINT NOT NULL,
  revtype SMALLINT,

  price_m BOOLEAN,
  CONSTRAINT example_product_a_pkey PRIMARY KEY (id, rev),
  CONSTRAINT fk_l8tlj6h1v48rav5nulvesvbg1 FOREIGN KEY (rev)
      REFERENCES idm_audit (id) MATCH SIMPLE
      ON UPDATE NO ACTION ON DELETE NO ACTION
);

Repository

We are using Spring Data as data access layer. So we create simple repository to our entity:

/**
 * Example product repository
 */
public interface ExampleProductRepository extends AbstractEntityRepository<ExampleProduct> {
 
	/**
	 * Returns product by unique code.
	 * 
	 * @param code
	 * @return
	 */
	ExampleProduct findOneByCode(String code);
 
}

Filter

ExampleProductFilter is used for finding products. The filter is used in the repository above:

/**
 * Filter for example products
 * 
 * @author Radek Tomiška
 *
 */
public class ExampleProductFilter extends DataFilter {
 
	public ExampleProductFilter() {
		this(new LinkedMultiValueMap<>());
	}
 
	public ExampleProductFilter(MultiValueMap<String, Object> data) {
		super(ExampleProductDto.class, data);
	}
}

DataFilter super class contains filtering by text and id (uuid) parameter. Filtering by id parameter is implemented in core (UuidFilter) for all abstract entities. We need to add the implementation for text parameter, which is custom for every abstract entity:

/**
 * Example product filter - by text.
 */
@Component
@Description("Example product filter - by text. Search as \"like\" in name, code and description - lower, case insensitive.")
public class TextExampleProductFilter extends AbstractFilterBuilder<ExampleProduct, ExampleProductFilter> {
 
	@Autowired
	public TextExampleProductFilter(ExampleProductRepository repository) {
		super(repository);
	}
 
	@Override
	public String getName() {
		return ExampleProductFilter.PARAMETER_TEXT;
	}
 
	@Override
	public Predicate getPredicate(Root<ExampleProduct> root, CriteriaQuery<?> query, CriteriaBuilder builder, ExampleProductFilter filter) {
		if (StringUtils.isEmpty(filter.getText())) {
			return null;
		}	
		return builder.or(
				builder.like(builder.lower(root.get(ExampleProduct_.name)), "%" + filter.getText().toLowerCase() + "%"),
				builder.like(builder.lower(root.get(ExampleProduct_.code)), "%" + filter.getText().toLowerCase() + "%"),
				builder.like(builder.lower(root.get(ExampleProduct_.description)), "%" + filter.getText().toLowerCase() + "%")					
				);
	}
}

Dto

The Dto layer creates the bridge between the persistence and the REST layer. An entity is transformed to a dto in the service layer, so we prepare dto class for the example product:

/**
 * Example product
 */
@Relation(collectionRelation = "exampleProducts")
@ApiModel(description = "Example product")
public class ExampleProductDto extends AbstractDto implements Codeable, Disableable {
 
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
 
	@NotEmpty
	@Size(min = 0, max = DefaultFieldLengths.NAME)
	@ApiModelProperty(required = true, notes = "Unique example product's code. Could be used as identifier in rest endpoints.")
	private String code;
	@NotEmpty
	@Size(min = 0, max = DefaultFieldLengths.NAME)
	private String name;
	@Size(max = DefaultFieldLengths.DESCRIPTION)
	private String description;
	@ApiModelProperty(notes = "Price can be null - product is for free")
	private BigDecimal price;
	@ApiModelProperty(notes = "Disabled product is not available for ordering.")
	private boolean disabled;
 
        ... getters and setters
}

Service

The service contains business logic, adds transactions etc. to work (CRUD) with an entity (~repository). Services can only be used in the REST layer (controllers). Using repositories directly in controllers is prohibited.

Service - interface

Every service should have an interface. We are using default interface-based JDK proxy approach, so creating an interface is needed for appropriate Spring autowiring (e.g. with @Transactional usage).

/**
 * Example product service
 */
public interface ExampleProductService extends 
		ReadWriteDtoService<ExampleProductDto, ExampleProductFilter>,
		CodeableService<ExampleProductDto>,
		AuthorizableService<ExampleProductDto> {
}

Service - default implementation

/**
 * Default product service implementation
 */
@Service("exampleProductService")
public class DefaultExampleProductService 
		extends AbstractReadWriteDtoService<ExampleProductDto, ExampleProduct, ExampleProductFilter>
		implements ExampleProductService {
 
	private final ExampleProductRepository repository;
 
	@Autowired
	public DefaultExampleProductService(ExampleProductRepository repository) {
		super(repository);
		//
		this.repository = repository;
	}
 
	@Override
	public AuthorizableType getAuthorizableType() {
		return new AuthorizableType(ExampleGroupPermission.EXAMPLEPRODUCT, getEntityClass());
	}
 
	@Override
	@Transactional(readOnly = true)
	public ExampleProductDto getByCode(String code) {
		return toDto(repository.findOneByCode(code));
	}
 
}

Security

ExampleGroupPermission is used in the service implementation - we want to support authorization policies in our example agenda. So we create a new group:

/**
 * Aggregate base permission. Name can't contain character '_' - its used for joining to authority name.
 */
public enum ExampleGroupPermission implements GroupPermission {
 
	EXAMPLEPRODUCT(
			IdmBasePermission.ADMIN, 
			IdmBasePermission.AUTOCOMPLETE,
			IdmBasePermission.READ,
			IdmBasePermission.CREATE,
			IdmBasePermission.UPDATE,
			IdmBasePermission.DELETE);
 
	// String constants could be used in pre / post authotize SpEl expressions
 
	public static final String EXAMPLE_PRODUCT_ADMIN = "EXAMPLEPRODUCT" + BasePermission.SEPARATOR + "ADMIN";
	public static final String EXAMPLE_PRODUCT_AUTOCOMPLETE = "EXAMPLEPRODUCT" + BasePermission.SEPARATOR + "AUTOCOMPLETE";
	public static final String EXAMPLE_PRODUCT_READ = "EXAMPLEPRODUCT" + BasePermission.SEPARATOR + "READ";
	public static final String EXAMPLE_PRODUCT_CREATE = "EXAMPLEPRODUCT" + BasePermission.SEPARATOR + "CREATE";
	public static final String EXAMPLE_PRODUCT_UPDATE = "EXAMPLEPRODUCT" + BasePermission.SEPARATOR + "UPDATE";
	public static final String EXAMPLE_PRODUCT_DELETE = "EXAMPLEPRODUCT" + BasePermission.SEPARATOR + "DELETE";
 
	private final List<BasePermission> permissions;
 
	private ExampleGroupPermission(BasePermission... permissions) {
		this.permissions = Arrays.asList(permissions);
	}
 
	@Override
	public List<BasePermission> getPermissions() {		
		return permissions;
	}
 
	@Override
	public String getName() {
		return name();
	}	
 
	@Override
	public String getModule() {
		return ExampleModuleDescriptor.MODULE_ID;
	}
}

This group will be used in the REST layer to secure our endpoint.

Authorization evaluator

Example product can have empty price (product for free) - this product will be available for logged identity by custom authorization policy:

/**
 * Adds permissions to products for free.
 */
@Component
@Description("Adds permissions to products for free..")
public class FreeProductEvaluator extends AbstractAuthorizationEvaluator<ExampleProduct> {
 
	@Override
	public Predicate getPredicate(Root<ExampleProduct> root, CriteriaQuery<?> query, CriteriaBuilder builder, AuthorizationPolicy policy, BasePermission... permission) {
		return builder.or(
				builder.isNull(root.get(ExampleProduct_.price)),
				builder.equal(root.get(ExampleProduct_.price), BigDecimal.ZERO)
				);
	}
 
	@Override
	public Set<String> getPermissions(ExampleProduct authorizable, AuthorizationPolicy policy) {
		Set<String> permissions = super.getPermissions(authorizable, policy);
		if (authorizable.getPrice() == null || BigDecimal.ZERO.equals(authorizable.getPrice())) {
			permissions.addAll(policy.getPermissions());
		}
		return permissions;
	}
}

Rest controller

At last, we can expose a new REST endpoint (controller) with our example product.

/**
 * RESTful example product endpoint
 */
@RestController
@Enabled(ExampleModuleDescriptor.MODULE_ID)
@RequestMapping(value = BaseController.BASE_PATH + "/example-products")
@Api(
		value = ExampleProductController.TAG, 
		description = "Example products", 
		tags = { ExampleProductController.TAG })
public class ExampleProductController extends DefaultReadWriteDtoController<ExampleProductDto, ExampleProductFilter> {
 
	protected static final String TAG = "Example products";
 
	@Autowired
	public ExampleProductController(ExampleProductService service) {
		super(service);
	}
 
	@Override
	@ResponseBody
	@RequestMapping(method = RequestMethod.GET)
	@PreAuthorize("hasAuthority('" + ExampleGroupPermission.EXAMPLE_PRODUCT_READ + "')")
	@ApiOperation(

				})
	public Resources<?> find(
			@RequestParam(required = false) MultiValueMap<String, Object> parameters,
			@PageableDefault Pageable pageable) {
		return super.find(parameters, pageable);
	}
 
	@Override

	}
 
	@Override
	protected ExampleProductFilter toFilter(MultiValueMap<String, Object> parameters) {
		return new ExampleProductFilter(parameters);
	}
}

As you can see, security and swagger annotations are used in the REST controller.

Now we have all parts on the backend prepared and we can move to the frontend. The first thing what we need to do is to create a service, which will consume the REST endpoint on the backend.

Service

import { Services } from 'czechidm-core';
import { Domain } from 'czechidm-core';
 
/**
 * Example products
 */
export default class ExampleProductService extends Services.AbstractService {
 
  getApiPath() {
    return '/example-products';
  }
 
  getNiceLabel(entity) {
    if (!entity) {
      return '';
    }
    return `${entity.name} (${entity.code})`;
  }
 
  /**
   * Agenda supports authorization policies
   */
  supportsAuthorization() {
    return true;
  }
 
  /**
   * Group permission - all base permissions (`READ`, `WRITE`, ...) will be evaluated under this group
   */
  getGroupPermission() {
    return 'EXAMPLEPRODUCT';
  }
 
  /**
   * Almost all dtos doesn§t support rest `patch` method
   */
  supportsPatch() {
    return false;
  }
 
  /**
   * Returns default searchParameters for current entity type
   *
   * @return {object} searchParameters
   */
  getDefaultSearchParameters() {
    return super.getDefaultSearchParameters().setName(Domain.SearchParameters.NAME_QUICK).clearSort().setSort('name');
  }
}

We can register services and managers in index.js files placed in folders, where services and managers are defined - it's simpler to import services from one file:

...
import { ExampleProductService } from '../services';
...

where the relative path leads to the module service's index.js:

import ExampleProductService from './ExampleProductService';
 
const ServiceRoot = {
  ExampleProductService
};
 
ServiceRoot.version = '0.1.0';
module.exports = ServiceRoot;

Manager

The service can be used in the manager:

import { Managers } from 'czechidm-core';
import { ExampleProductService } from '../services';
 
/**
 * Example product manager
 *
 * @author Radek Tomiška
 */
export default class ExampleProductManager extends Managers.EntityManager {
 
  constructor() {
    super();
    this.service = new ExampleProductService();
  }
 
  getModule() {
    return 'example';
  }
 
  getService() {
    return this.service;
  }
 
  /**
   * Controlled entity
   */
  getEntityType() {
    return 'ExampleProduct';
  }
 
  /**
   * Collection name in search / find response
   */
  getCollectionType() {
    return 'exampleProducts';
  }
}

Route and navigation

We define new routes in routes.js descriptor:

module.exports = {
  module: 'example',
  childRoutes: [
    ...
    {
      path: '/example/products',
      component: require('./src/content/example-product/ExampleProducts'),
      access: [ { 'type': 'HAS_ANY_AUTHORITY', 'authorities': ['EXAMPLEPRODUCT_READ'] } ]
    },
    {
      path: 'example/product/:entityId/',
      component: require('./src/content/example-product/ExampleProductRoute'),
      access: [ { 'type': 'HAS_ANY_AUTHORITY', 'authorities': ['EXAMPLEPRODUCT_READ'] } ],
      childRoutes: [
        {
          path: 'detail',
          component: require('./src/content/example-product/ExampleProductContent'),
          access: [ { 'type': 'HAS_ANY_AUTHORITY', 'authorities': ['EXAMPLEPRODUCT_READ'] } ]
        }
      ]
    },
    {
      path: 'example/product/:entityId/new',
      component: require('./src/content/example-product/ExampleProductContent'),
      access: [ { 'type': 'HAS_ANY_AUTHORITY', 'authorities': ['EXAMPLEPRODUCT_CREATE'] } ]
    }
  ]
};

and create new navigation items in module-descriptor.js:

module.exports = {
  'id': 'example',
  'npmName': 'czechidm-example',
  'backendId': 'example',
  'name': 'Example module for CzechIdM devstack.',
  'description': 'Example module for CzechIdM devstack. This module can be duplicated and renamed for create new optional CzechIdM module.',
  'mainRouteFile': 'routes.js',
  'mainComponentDescriptorFile': 'component-descriptor.js',
  'mainLocalePath': 'src/locales/',
  'navigation': {
    'items': [
      {
        'id': 'example-main-menu',
        'labelKey': 'example:content.examples.label',
        'titleKey': 'example:content.examples.title',
        'icon': 'gift',
        'iconColor': '#FF8A80',
        'order': 9,
        'items': [
          {
            'id': 'example-content',
            'type': 'DYNAMIC',
            'section': 'main',
            'labelKey': 'example:content.example.label',
            'titleKey': 'example:content.example.title',
            'order': 10,
            'path': '/example/content',
            'priority': 0
          },
          {
            'id': 'example-products',
            'type': 'DYNAMIC',
            'section': 'main',
            'icon': 'gift',
            'labelKey': 'example:content.example-products.label',
            'titleKey': 'example:content.example-products.title',
            'order': 20,
            'path': '/example/products',
            'access': [ { 'type': 'HAS_ANY_AUTHORITY', 'authorities': ['EXAMPLEPRODUCT_READ'] } ],
            'items': [
              {
                'id': 'example-product-detail',
                'type': 'TAB',
                'labelKey': 'example:content.example-product.detail.basic',
                'order': 10,
                'path': '/example/product/:entityId/detail',
                'icon': 'gift',
                'access': [ { 'type': 'HAS_ANY_AUTHORITY', 'authorities': ['EXAMPLEPRODUCT_READ'] } ]
              },
            ]
          }
        ]
      }
      ...
