Sep 10, 2020 Spring Boot applications often need to provide some REST APIs to allow front-end applications to download images. We will introduce 2 different implementations. One is that when open the image URL is opened with a browser, the image will be downloaded into a file. The other is that the browser will directly display the image. Table of Contents.

I am trying to download a file from a Spring boot rest service.

When I tried to download the file from the browser, it starts the download, but always fails. Is there anything wrong with the service which is causing the download to fail?

In this tutorial, I will show you how to build Spring Boot download CSV file Rest API example that exports data from MySQL Database table using & Apache Commons CSV. Excel file instead: Spring Boot: Download Excel file example. Deployment: – Deploy Spring Boot App on AWS – Elastic Beanstalk. – Docker Compose: Spring Boot and MySQL example.

Option 1 using an InputStreamResource

Resource implementation for a given InputStream.

Should only be used if no other specific Resource implementation is > applicable. In particular, prefer ByteArrayResource or any of the file-based Resource implementations where possible.

Option2 as the documentation of the InputStreamResource suggests - using a ByteArrayResource:

I would suggest using a StreamingResponseBody since with it, the application can write directly to the response (OutputStream), without holding up the Servlet container thread. It is a good approach if you are downloading a very large file.

Ps.: When using StreamingResponseBody, it is highly recommended to configure TaskExecutor used in Spring MVC for executing asynchronous requests. TaskExecutor is an interface that abstracts the execution of a Runnable.

I want to share a simple approach for downloading files with JavaScript (ES6), React and a Spring Boot backend:

  1. Spring boot Rest Controller

Resource from org.springframework.core.io.Resource

  1. React, API call using AXIOS

Set the responseType to arraybuffer to specify the type of data contained in the response.

Final step >downloading
with the help of js-file-download you can trigger browser to save data to file as if it was downloaded.

If you need to download a huge file from the server's file system, then ByteArrayResource can take all Java heap space. In that case, you can use FileSystemResource
