Spring Boot makes it easy to create Spring based Applications easy and Quick. In this tutorial i'll show you how to create a website and service static content using Springboot.

Prerequisites:

  1. Java
  2. Eclipse with Gradle (All latest versions of Eclipse get the Gradle by default)

First open your eclipse and create a new Gradle project. Once this is done you will see a project structure something like below.

Sample gradle project structure

Open the build.gradle file and add the SpringBoot dependencies. You can check the latest spring boot version by visiting the spring boot's official website. At the time of making this tutorial its 1.5.6 & 2.0.0 is beta.
Spring Boot's Gradle dependency:

dependencies {
    compile("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-web:1.5.6.RELEASE")
}

Now your build.gradle looks something like below

apply plugin: 'java-library'
repositories {
    jcenter()
}

dependencies {
    api 'org.apache.commons:commons-math3:3.6.1'
    implementation 'com.google.guava:guava:21.0'
    testImplementation 'junit:junit:4.12'

    //Spring Boot
    compile("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-web:1.5.6.RELEASE")
}

Once you are done with adding the dependency Right click on the project and goto Gradle and then click Refresh Gradle project, this will download you the dependencies you have just added in build.gradle file.

Now create a package in your source folder and create your main program in this tutorial i am naming my main program as Start.java
Paste the following code in Start.java

package com.example;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

@SpringBootApplication
public class Start {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(Start.class, args);
    }
}

Now create another source folder /src/main/resources to keep your resources. In the /src/main/resources create folder and name it as 'public' or 'static' as spring look for these folder names to find the static content. In the public or static folder add your static content.
Now your project structure should look like below

info-about-image

Now you are ready to start your spring boot application do that by running Start.java as a main program. If you start the main program The Spring boot will start with the default port which is 8080 and shows the following logs
