Building a Spring Boot with MongoDB Integration

Step 1: Set up a Spring Boot Project

Step 7: Run and Test

Run your Spring Boot application and test the endpoints using tools like Postman or cURL. You can send HTTP GET requests to retrieve employees or POST requests to save new employees.

This basic example provides a foundation for building more complex Spring Boot applications with MongoDB integration. Feel free to extend and customize based on your specific needs.
