Calling Restful API in Angular JS

admin 06:47:pm Jan 29 2017

Here, we will call the RESTful API from angular js.

Suppose there is a RESTful API which URL is: http://localhost:8080/saveDetails

And I want to save employee information using angular js. We will call the above API using "POST" method.

There is a button in html page. When I will click this button it will save the employee information. Data is being sent in JSON format.

Here, I am using "$resource" service to call RESTful API. The $resource service is a factory which creates a resource object that lets you interact with RESTful server-side data sources as per the angular js documentation.

Note: It requires the ngResource module of angular js to be installed.

1. Testing.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html ng-app='demoApp'>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<script src="../angular/angular.js"></script>
<script src="../angular-resource/angular-resource.js"></script>
<body ng-controller='demoCtrl'>
<input type="button" value="Submit" ng-click="saveDetails()" />
<script src="testing.js"></script>

2. testing.js

var demoApp = angular.module("demoApp", ['ngResource']);
demoApp.factory('employee', function ($resource) {
return $resource('/employee/:cmd', {}, {
saveDetails: { method: 'POST', isArray: true, params: { cmd: 'saveDetails' } },
demoApp.controller("demoCtrl", ['$scope', 'employee', function ($scope, employee) {
var config = {
"empID": 1001,
"firstName": "My Name",
$scope.saveDetails = function () {
employee.saveDetails(config, function (data) {
// here data will come as JSON array in "data" object
// it will be used to show input source fields
}, function (err) {
console.log('saveDetails error:', err);

Hope this is helpful example for you. Leave your comment and provide your suggestion if any.
