##Spring Boot + Thymeleaf + Heroku## This demo application has been created as an example utilization of the Spring Boot + Thymeleaf + Heroku Template project. Detailed steps documenting the creation of this application can be found in The Developer’s Bookshelf with Heroku web page on my website.
- Spring Boot, no-xml Spring MVC 4 web application for Servlet 3.0 environment
- Thymeleaf templates with added Joda Time & Spring Security Dialects
- Heroku fully cloud deployable
- JPA 2.0 (Spring Data JPA/Hibernate)
- Database (Liquibase/PostgreSQL/H2 embedded/HikariCP)
- Testing (JUnit/Mockito/MockMVC/AssertJ/Hamcrest)
- Java 8, Spring Security 3.2, Maven 3, SLF4J, Logback, Bootstrap 3.3.4, jQuery 1.11.2, i18n
###Live Demo### Be aware that this application is currently running on a free Heroku account. If it hasn't been accessed in 30 minutes, then the first request will take up to 120 seconds. Note that the demo application might fail to load altogether if the Heroku servers are busy.
Here is the Developer's Bookshelf running on Heroku.
$ mvn clean install $ mvn spring-boot:run
Navigate to http://localhost:8080.
The application can also be deployed by running the
###Deploying to Heroku### The following steps require that the Heroku Toolbelt has been installed locally and that a Heroku account has been created.
Navigate to the project directory on the command line.
Before creating your Heroku application, make sure that there is a Git repository associated with the project.
$ git status
If a Git repository is not associated with the project, then create one before continuing.
Create a new application on Heroku
$ heroku create
Rename your Heroku application if interested
$ heroku apps:rename new-name
Add a PostgreSQL database to your Heroku application
$ heroku addons:create heroku-postgresql
Deploy project to Heroku
$ git push heroku master
Look at your application logs to see what is happening behind the scenes
$ heroku logs
If your application deploys without timing out then open it as follows
$ heroku open
