If you only want to try the application without modifying it, run the build and start the components with docker-compose.

mvn clean package
docker-compose up

When all components are up browse to http://localhost:8080.

Otherwise start each component individually.

The Postgres database

docker run --rm --name musicstore-db -e POSTGRES_USER=music -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=music -e POSTGRES_DB=musicdb -p 5432:5432 postgres

The MongoDB server

docker run --rm --name musicstore-mongo -p 27017:27017 mongo


  • Do one time build to pull the dependencies mvn clean install

  • To run the application in foreground do mvn vertx:run with redeploy enabled

  • To run the applicaiton in background mode i.e. vertx start do mvn vertx:start

Check vertx-maven-plugin for more information and examples on the plugin.

Useful stuff

Initial dataset

The initial dataset has been created with the initdb.groovy script located at the project root. It parses a Rhythmbox database file and inserts the data into Postgres.

Then it’s easy to create a script for Flyway.

docker exec musicstore-db pg_dump -a --inserts --exclude-table=schema_version -h -U music musicdb > src/main/resources/db/migration/V2__InsertData.sql
