Project Structure:


POM stands for project object model. It's the fundamental unit of work in Maven. It is an XML file that contains information about the project and configuration details used to build the project. It downloads required libraries easily using POM XML tags.

<description>Demo project for Spring Boot</description>

The @Controller annotation has been part of the framework for a very long time.@Controller annotation designates that the annotated class is a controller. It is autodetected through classpath scanning.

import org.springframework.http.HttpStatus;
import org.springframework.http.ResponseEntity;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.GetMapping;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;

public class WebController {

@GetMapping({"/", "/view"})
public String view() {
return "index";

public ResponseEntity<Vo> listAllUsers() {

// Dummy list of values
List<String[]> obj = new ArrayList<>();
for (int i = 1; i <= 1000; i++) {
String uname = "username-";
String lname = "lastname-";
String Id = "Id-";
String email = "";
String pin = "pin-";
String mStringArray[] = {uname + i, lname + i, Id + i,
email + i, pin + i};
Vo vo = new Vo();
return new ResponseEntity<>(vo, HttpStatus.OK);

import java.util.List;

public class Vo {
private List<String[]> data;

public List<String[]> getData() {
return data;

public void setData(List<String[]> data) { = data;

Spring-boot(Main class)
The Spring Boot application's main class contains a public static void main() method that starts up the Spring ApplicationContext.

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

public class SpringbootdatablepaginationApplication {

public static void main(String[] args) {
run(SpringbootdatablepaginationApplication.class, args);
