  2. Hello !
    First of all i must thank you for all the tutos you’re making! You really have a GOOD way explaining things !

    I have implemented all this but i had a “Access-Control-Allow-Origin” problem! i don’t know why it appears since we have dealt with that in the controller part !

    Here’s the entire error : Access to XMLHttpRequest at ‘http://localhost:8080/api/customer’ from origin ‘http://localhost:4200’ has been blocked by CORS policy: Response to preflight request doesn’t pass access control check: No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource.

  3. Hi, Spring boot don’t create tables in postgresql. Do you have any idea?

    Below, log console, but you don’t use servelts, right?
