Build Status Quality Gate Status Coverage Technical Debt

This project serves as a baseline when you wish to begin a new micro service exposing HTTP endpoints.

It is set up with the following dependencies/frameworks:

Health endpoint

The application includes a simple health-endpoint, reachable at /health.

Example response:

  "service": "microservice-baseline",
  "timestamp": "2018-10-15T17:28:00.164Z",
  "runningSince": "2018-10-15T17:27:56.516Z",
  "version": "0.1-SNAPSHOT"

Endpoint tests showcases how a reusable TestServer is started, and the endpoint tested using REST-assured.

It is achieved by extending AbstractEndpointTest.


This baseline is set up without Spring, Constretto or similar tools. Instead the properties are read through the class PropertiesHelper in the Main class.

Properties are read from the following locations, in the following order:

  1. from classpath (resources/
  2. config_override/ file.

Dependency Injection to Endpoint Constructors

See JerseyConfig for example on how the property secured.endpoint.message is passed to the SecuredEndpoint constructor, and registered with Jersey.

It is only required to register the endpoint if you have special constructors. E.g. HealthEndpoint is registered through the line: packages("no.capraconsulting");


The default logback.xml in this repository only appends statements to STDOUT. This is intended, and covers the two main use cases:

If you wish to run the application with logging to file, you should use a properly set up file appender:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration scan="true" scanPeriod="60 seconds">
  <property name="LOG_DIR" value="logs/"/>
  <property name="appName" value="app"/>
  <appender name="logfile" class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.RollingFileAppender">
    <rollingPolicy class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.TimeBasedRollingPolicy">
      <pattern>%d{yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.SSSZ} [%thread] %-5level %logger{35} - %msg%n</pattern>
  <logger name="org.eclipse.jetty" level="WARN"/>
  <logger name="no.capraconsulting" level="INFO"/>
  <root level="info">
    <appender-ref ref="logfile"/>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
