My target is to build a GraphQL server on Spring with (1) GraphiQL IDE (2) dynamic GraphQL schema at run-time. My GraphQL engine is GraphQL-Java.
In my first try, I use graphql-java-spring-boot-starter-webmvc and graphiql-spring-boot-starter.
Both the GraphQL server and the GraphiQL work well.
However, under the graphql-java-spring-boot-starter-webmvc framework, a @Bean of GraphQL class is needed. In this bean, the schema is loaded when the server starts so it could not been updated.
In my second try, I don’t use graphql-java-spring-boot-starter-webmvc. Instead, I choose spring-boot-starter-web to start the web server and define my own RestController. This is easy to update the GraphQL instance. But I don’t find a way to integrate with GraphiQL. I googled GraphiQL+Spring but all solutions are with graphql-java-spring-boot-starter.
Appreciate if anyone could provide me an idea on either approach.
Do you have a sample of your setup in git?
*.graphqlschemas should be picked up in the configured schema resource path. check if you have the path set in your
application.ymlor if your schema is in the configured path if its already set or by default.
On your second point: “I googled GraphiQL+Spring but all solutions are with graphql-java-spring-boot-starter.”
