You will need an instance of PostgreSQL running, for example here is how to run one with Docker:

# Clone git repo
git clone
cd api-gov-au/

# Build it
gradle build

# Create a PostgreSQL instance
docker run --name api-gov-au-db -p 5432:5432 -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=mysecretpassword -d postgres:9.6

# Run it
SPRING_PROFILES_ACTIVE=notprodordefault \
SPRING_DATASOURCE_URL="jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/postgres?user=postgres&password=mysecretpassword" \
BaseRepoURI= \
    java -Xmx200m -Xss512k -jar build/libs/service-catalogue-1.0.jar

Your app should now be running on localhost:5000.
