Review the base structure of the application
NOTE: This project has been automatically deployed to OpenShift. The commands being run in your terminal are the deploy commands. Please do not stop these commands. It may take a few minutes before the deploy is complete.
For your convenience, this scenario has been created with a base project using the Java programming language and the Apache Maven build tool.
As you review the content, you will notice that there are a couple TODO comments. Do not remove them! These comments are used as markers for later exercises in this scenario. Open
src/main/java/com/example/service/FruitController.java. This is our rest controller. We will be adding our logging commands here later in this module.
1. Test the application locally
As we develop the application we want to be able to test and verify our change at different stages. One way we can do that locally is by using the
spring-boot maven plugin.
Run the application by executing the following command:
Once that's completed, click on the Local Web Browser tab in the console frame of this browser window which will open another tab or window of your browser pointing to port 8080 on your client. Or use this link.
You should now see an HTML page with a
Success welcome message that looks like this:
If you see this then you've successfully set up the application! If not check the logs in the terminal. Spring Boot adds a couple helper layers to catch common errors and print helpful messages to the console so check for those first.
2. Stop the application
Before moving on, click in the terminal window and then press CTRL-C to stop the running application!
You have now successfully executed the first step in this scenario. In the next step we will login to OpenShift and create a new project.
