How to return CREATED status (201 HTTP) in ResponseEntity

There is a Spring-MVC application. In controllers, when returning the results of methods, I return via ResponseEntity<>. On success, I return (200 statutes) the OK-method. But when creating something, I would like to return the CREATED-method (201 status). I just can’t understand what kind of URL to ask in parentheses when calling through CREATED. How can this be implemented?

Now I have such an implementation:

@PostMapping("/create/dish")
    ResponseEntity<Dish> createDish(@Valid @RequestBody DishDTO dishDTO) {

        return ResponseEntity.ok(cookService.createDish(dishDTO.getDishName(), dishDTO.getAboutDish(), dishDTO.getDishType(),
                dishDTO.getCookingTime(), dishDTO.getWeight(),
                dishDTO.getDishCost(), dishDTO.getCooksId()));
    }

I want to remake it like this to make it work(now it not work):

@PostMapping("/create/dish")
    ResponseEntity<Dish> createDish(@Valid @RequestBody DishDTO dishDTO) {

        return ResponseEntity.created(cookService.createDish(dishDTO.getDishName(), dishDTO.getAboutDish(), dishDTO.getDishType(),
                dishDTO.getCookingTime(), dishDTO.getWeight(),
                dishDTO.getDishCost(), dishDTO.getCooksId()));
    }

enter image description here

P.S. I don’t have a frontend at all. All through Swagger or PostMan.

Answer

Just return this way:

return new ResponseEntity<Dish>(cookService.createDish(...), HttpStatus.CREATED)

Making sure you have imported org.springframework.http.HttpStatus
