i’m starting a project using spring boot on backend, and react.js on front. The task I’m working on is handling the account creation, particularly authenticating using facebook/google etc. After successful logging I want to redirect to some next step in account creation. I have few approach to consider, don’t know which one would work best in given scenario and tech stack.
- Handling the social logon on back site with spring boot. But then how can I redirect to next step which is on react side (after successful logging)? How can I pass the direct url to which I would like to go? It’s not in the spring app range, isn’t it?
Wouldn’t it be better to 2) Handle the social logon using react, get the data I need and send it to back for persisting into db and keeping the session and proceed on the front to next step?
I don’t know which approach to go with. Guys, do you have any suggestions or examples I could analyse? Maybe I’m completely wrong with my thinking…
