Running locally

You will require Java SDK 1.8, Maven and Node/Npm installed and available in your terminal to run RBP. To get started follow these instructions:

  1. Clone/Download the repository
  2. Navigate into the restful-booker-platform root folder
  3. Run either run_locally.sh or run_locally.cmd depending on your OS to build RBP and get it running (It may take a while on the first run as it downloads dependencies)
  4. Navigate to http://localhost:3003 to access the site


The user login details are:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: password

Database access

RBP uses h2 in-memory databases for ease of deployment. However, the databases have been setup with TCP access, meaning you can use a SQL client that supports h2 SQL to connect.

You can either connect to the Booking database on port 9090 or the Room database on port 9091.

Please note: DB connections are only available in local deployments


The details on running checks, building APIs and additional details on documentation for development are found in READMEs inside each of the API folders.
