This is a small demo application for showing how to run a Spring Boot application on Heroku. For more information have a look at the accompanying blog post. You can test the application here. Note that it is only running on a free dyno, so it may take some time before it responds.
To run the application from your IDE, simply run the
com.github.britter.springbootherokudemo.Application class as
a Java Application.
Alternatively the application can be started from the terminal using maven with
After starting the application, point your browser to http://localhost:8080.
For running the application using a real Postgres database, uncomment all property
definitions in the
application.properties file and put the configuration for your Postgres instance there.
You can also use Docker for starting a Postgres database. Just run the
and it will create a Postgres container for you. When using docker, all you have to change in the
application.properties file is
spring.datasource.url. For boot2docker users, the host name should already be
correct. For Linux users it has to be changed to localhost.
