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 gradle with
After starting the application, point your browser to http://localhost:8080.
For running the application using a real Postgres database, the
profile defined by the
application-postgres.properties file can be used. You can either change the file to point to
your pre existing Postgres instance or use a Docker Postgres container.
To start Postgres in Docker just run
./gradlew dockerRun and it will create a Postgres container for you.
After that you can start the application with
postgres profile by running
./gradlew bootRun -Ppostgres
