Quickstart (professional plan)
In Bootifys professional plan further options are available, to add even more functionalities to your project.
Flyway / Liquibase Schema Generation
Besides Hibernate, Flyway and Liquibase can be selected for schema generation. The SQL script / changelog including the setup is generated according to your selected database and entities. Read more
Tests with @Testcontainers
This option adds integration tests for all controllers (CRUD and custom) to your project. Using
@SpringBootTest, the entire application context is started with the relational
database running in a Docker container.
This allows to test the application in a production-like environment.
Spring Security with JWT
Add Spring Security into your project, protecting your REST API with JSON Web Token (JWT). A client can authenticate with username and password to receive a token, which must be provided for requests to the API. Select a table from your custom schema to specify where the users are loaded from. Read more
Multi module project setup
Larger applications are often divided into modules to separate concerns. With the Multi Module option selected, the project is divided into two modules "base" and "web" together with the proper Maven / Gradle setup.
Custom REST API
In the Controllers tab, custom RestControllers with their endpoints can be
created. Complex request / response objects can be defined in the Data Objects
tab (e.g. "AddTodoRequest"). Path parameters are added inline in the form
The API of the new project can thus be specified and reviewed by the team and
is directly available in the code base.
Further customization options
Pagination is available for both generated and custom endpoints by
Page as the return type. MapStruct can be enabled
to add all necessary dependencies and use it for mappings of the generated RestControllers. An option
to split the services into an interface and an implementing class is also available.
With the code base of your new application configured and generated in this way, the implementation of the business logic can start right away.
