Build Status

Installation

If you don't already, install Java JDK 1.6. For OSX the package is called Java for OS X 2012-003 Developer Package, just get the latest one as long as it is 1.6. Now add the path to your .bash_profile in an environmental variable called $JAVA_HOME.

export JAVA_HOME="/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0_31-b04-415.jdk/Contents/Home"

Make sure that Maven (Java's package manager) is installed; if not, go get it here. You'll wan't to add the $M2_HOME and M2 environmental variables to your .bash_profile.

export M2_HOME="/usr/share/java/maven-3.0.3"
export M2=$M2_HOME/bin

You'll alsp want to download Roo, Spring's RAD CLI, this will prepare you to make quick modifications to your Spring application as well as generate new ones. To setup a Spring application on Heroku, read here.

mkdir ~/lib
mv ~/Downloads/spring-roo-1.2.2.RELEASE/ ~/lib
cd ~/lib/spring-roo-1.2.2.RELEASE
ln -s roo.sh roo
echo "export PATH=$PATH:~/lib/spring-roo-1.2.2.RELEASE"

And finally make sure you have Postgresg installed. Use pgAdmin III to create a user called spring-todo with password spring-todo and a database spring-todo. Append the bin to your path in your .bash_profile as well as the $DATABE_URL which the application will use to connect to the database.

export PATH=$PATH:/Library/PostgreSQL/9.1/bin
export DATABASE_URL=postgres://spring-todo:spring-todo@localhost/spring-todo

Running the application

To get the application going, simply instruct Maven to build then Java to run Jetty like so:

mvn build
java -jar target/dependency/jetty-runner.jar target/*.war

Now you should be able to get to the application in your browser at http://localhost:8080/

Testing and developing

With Maven, running tests is a breeze. From the root of the project, simply run:

mvn test
