Spring Boot running in 2 min

Spring Boot 1.0.1 is released. I wanted to find the fastest way to get a spring boot app running. The usual “Hello world” was created and running in around 2 minutes. For the creation of the initial project files I used lazybones. The project template uses gradle as build tool. So I had to install gradle too. And the easiest way to install lazybones and gradle is gvm.

Install gvm:

curl -s | bash
source "//.gvm/bin/"

Install gradle and lazybones:

gvm install gradle
gvm install lazybones

Create a project with the name “mycrm” with the template “spring-boot-actuator”:

lazybones create spring-boot-actuator mycrm

Change into project directory and build the runable jar:

cd mycrm
gradle bootRepackage

Run the application:

java -jar build/libs/spring-boot-sample-actuator-1.0.0.jar &

Get the hello world 🙂

wget -O - localhost:8080 | less
