In case you find a bug/suggested improvement for Spring Petclinic
Our issue tracker is available here: https://github.com/spring-petclinic/spring-petclinic-kotlin/issues
In its default configuration, Petclinic uses an in-memory database (HSQLDB) which gets populated at startup with data. A similar setup is provided for MySql in case a persistent database configuration is needed. Note that whenever the database type is changed, the data-access.properties file needs to be updated and the mysql-connector-java artifact from the pom.xml needs to be uncommented.
You could start a MySql database with docker:
docker run -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=petclinic -e MYSQL_DATABASE=petclinic -p 3306:3306 mysql:5.7

Interesting Spring Petclinic forks
The Spring Petclinic master branch in the main spring-projects GitHub org is the "canonical" implementation, currently based on Spring Boot and Thymeleaf.
This spring-petclinic-kotlin project is one of the several forks hosted in a special GitHub org: spring-petclinic. If you have a special interest in a different technology stack that could be used to implement the Pet Clinic then please join the community there.

Interaction with other open source projects
One of the best parts about working on the Spring Petclinic application is that we have the opportunity to work in direct contact with many Open Source projects. We found some bugs/suggested improvements on various topics such as Spring, Spring Data, Bean Validation and even Eclipse! In many cases, they've been fixed/implemented in just a few days. Here is a list of them:
|Spring JDBC: simplify usage of NamedParameterJdbcTemplate||SPR-10256 and SPR-10257|
|Bean Validation / Hibernate Validator: simplify Maven dependencies and backward compatibility||HV-790 and HV-792|
|Spring Data: provide more flexibility when working with JPQL queries||DATAJPA-292|
