Spring Cloud GCP and Cloud Storage: Unlimited Storage Option

Reading Time: 3 minutes
Spring Cloud GCP

Introduction

Section: Spring Cloud Storage provides a convenient abstraction for working with Google Cloud Storage, allowing you to easily access files from your application. And providing you with an interface that is consistent with other Spring APIs.

Section: You can also use cloud storage to provide dynamic content to your applications, such as processing images on the fly or streaming videos directly to your client.

Takeaway: Start, add the spring-cloud-starter-gcp-storage dependency.

Spring Cloud GCP

It provides integration for the Google Cloud Platform. Spring Cloud Storage provides a convenient abstraction for working with Google Cloud Storage, allowing you to easily access files from your application and providing you with an interface that is consistent with other Spring APIs.

You can use cloud storage to provide dynamic content to your applications, such as photos or videos that are uploaded by users. To get started using the module in a project:

  • Add the spring-cloud-starter-gcp-storage dependency (or spring-cloud-starter if you’re using Maven) to your project:

Spring Cloud GCP Integration

Spring Cloud GCP is a collection of modules that provide integration with the Google Cloud Platform. includes modules for Cloud Pub/Sub, Cloud Storage, Cloud Datastore, Cloud Bigtable, Cloud Spanner, and Cloud SQL that provide an easy way to integrate Spring Boot applications with GCP.

Spring-based client libraries are provided for the most important data stores (Cloud SQL) and common services like Pub/Sub or Metrics. Alongside these client libraries, there’s also support for building custom integrations on top of them. (e.g., CQRS/event sourcing) or integrating external services into your application via adapters built on top of Spring Boot configuration servers such as Consul or Eureka.

The goal is to reduce the amount of boilerplate code you need when using the GCP API directly by providing idioms and abstractions based on commonly used patterns in web applications: if you know how to build a RESTful API using Spring MVC then you already know how to write an application that uses our libraries! There’s no need to learn another programming language – just use Java 8 annotations and get up and running quickly.

Spring Cloud Storage abstraction

Spring Cloud Storage is a library that allows you to access the Google Cloud Storage service. It provides a convenient abstraction for working with Google Cloud Storage, allowing you to easily access files from your application and providing you with an interface that is consistent with other Spring APIs. You can also use cloud storage to provide dynamic content to your applications, such as processing images on the fly or streaming videos directly to your client.

It provides integration for Google Cloud Platform (GCP). It provides configuration and autoconfiguration support for most of the GCP services including:

  • Compute Engine
  • BigQuery
  • Datastore
  • PubSub

You can also use cloud storage to provide dynamic content to your applications, such as processing images on the fly or streaming videos directly to your client. Cloud storage is free software and you don’t need any special access rights to use it.

To get started, add the spring-cloud-starter-gcp-storage dependency.

Add this dependency in your project’s pom.xml file or build.gradle file:

For Gradel : dependencies {
implementation platform(“com.google.cloud:spring-cloud-gcp-dependencies:3.3.0”)
}
For Maven :

<dependencyManagement>
   <dependencies>
       <dependency>
           <groupId>com.google.cloud</groupId>
           <artifactId>spring-cloud-gcp-dependencies</artifactId>
           <version>3.3.0</version>
           <type>pom</type>
           <scope>import</scope>
       </dependency>
   </dependencies>
</dependencyManagement>

For Code Sample Reference Please find Below the line :

Add the following code to your application properties file (application.properties) for working with Cloud Storage:

  • Create a service account key by doing the following: “`shell gcloud projects create –name [your project name]“`
  • Download your generated service account private key file (the filename will be something like cloud_storage_example.json) and place it in your current directory as we will use this later to configure our application to work with GCP storage using Spring Cloud GCP Storage

Conclusion

The Spring Cloud GCP project makes it easy for you to build your next application on the Google Cloud Platform. You can get started with a free trial, so why not give it a try?
