I tried testing the demo project with <spring-data-releasetrain.version>Ingalls-BUILD-SNAPSHOT</spring-data-releasetrain.version> and I still see the same error. I don't think this has been fixed :( . I will reopen it.
Would you mind tweaking the project you linked to showing that it's failing on current snapshots? I can successfully bootstrap your project on both Spring 1.3.7 and 1.4.0 with both Hopper and Ingalls snapshots
I have cloned spring-data-rest and I made sure the RepositoryRestMvcConfiguration has the static modified. I rebuild the spring-data-rest and then I try to start my demo project with mvn spring-boot:run but then I get this exception:
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
Well, to verify wether our fix works, you need to ouse our artifacts, not some locally hacked version of SD REST ;). Please wipe your SD REST snapshots from your local Maven repository to make sure you use our latest builds. If you can still se it fail, please tweak the example you have linked to up there to exactly the version combination that you see the the failure in
