Boot Server fat-jar


First of all, build factcast completely if not yet done by running

mvn install

In order to run a simple example Factcast server, you could enter the project factcast-examples/factcast-example-server and run

mvn spring-boot:run

or run it in your IDE. Note that it will use TestContainer to start an ephemeral postgres instance for you. That means, you need to have a runnable Docker installed on your machine.

In case you want to use your local Postgres instead, take a look at ExampleServerWithPostgresContainer to find out how what is necessary to use a pgsql. After all, this is just a very simple Spring Boot application using JDBC.

As expected, running

mvn package

will create a standard spring boot fat jar target/factcast.jar that can be run instantly.
