Spring-boot configuration

I am trying to use a yeoman angular generator inside a Spring-boot application. I have the following project structure

/project -/src/main -- /java -- / resources --- /application.properties --- /public ---- /app ----- /index.html ----- /bower-components ----- /scripts ----- /views/**.html ----- /images ----- /styles

My goal is when the application loads up, index.html page would load from /project/src/main/resources/public/app/index.html and the URL should be "localhost:8080/#/". Currently, the URL looks like this localhost:8080/app/index.html.

I tried to put the mapping in application.properties as :


I also tried to overwrite the Application configuration by extending WebMvcConfigurerAdapter. The class is :

@Configuration public class ApplicationConfiguration extends WebMvcConfigurerAdapter { private static final String[] CLASSPATH_RESOURCE_LOCATIONS = { "classpath:/META-INF/resources/", "classpath:/resources/", "classpath:/public/" }; @Override public void addResourceHandlers(ResourceHandlerRegistry registry) { registry.addResourceHandler("/**").addResourceLocations( CLASSPATH_RESOURCE_LOCATIONS); } @Override public void addViewControllers(ViewControllerRegistry registry) { registry.addViewController( "/" ).setViewName( "app/index" ); } }

But looks like this isn't working either. Can anyone comment on what am I missing and how to achieve the URL as "locahost:8080/#/" even if the index.html is located at /src/main/resources/public/app.

Note: If I keep my index.html page at /src/main/resources/public, the URL is shown as desired [locahost:8080/#/] . Any help is appreciated.


-------------Problems Reply------------

Personally, I'm not sure if it is correct to access to your application's index page via localhost:8080/#/. As '#' is used to navigation on current page. Take a look at enter link description here answer about hyperlinks.


Looks like your problem in CLASSPATH_RESOURCE_LOCATIONS. Have you tried to change "classpath:/resources/" to "classpath:/resources/app/"?

Otherwise, you can move your html files from resources folder to WEB-INF and add the configuration of InternalResourceViewResolver to your @ApplicationConfiguration class, set it as following:

public InternalResourceViewResolver getInternalResourceViewResolver() {
InternalResourceViewResolver resolver = new InternalResourceViewResolver();
return resolver;

I hope this helps.

In my application configuration, I added the app folder

private static final String[] CLASSPATH_RESOURCE_LOCATIONS = {
"classpath:/META-INF/resources/", "classpath:/resources/",
"classpath:/public/app/" };

public void addResourceHandlers(ResourceHandlerRegistry registry) {

Then added the method addViewControllers as :

public void addViewControllers(ViewControllerRegistry registry) {
registry.addViewController("/").setViewName("forward:/index.html") ;

No change in my folder structure (as mentioned the question) was required.

Hope this helps others as well.
