We have developed RESTful services using Spring Boot in our last tutorial. Now we will learn How to deploy Spring Boot application in IBM Liberty and WAS 8.5. Many of us are still using IBM Application Servers and it’s very important to understand how we can deploy our spring boot code there.
IBM Liberty Profile has full J2EE support and it’s free for development!!! Thank you IBM ! Finally you have listened to the developers. It was always a nightmare to use the full IBM Application Server in a laptop especially when you are debugging. Also you can send the entire server setup to another developer and in no time your co-workers will have the application up and running. Let’s see how to setup the Liberty with eclipse (In case you are using RAD you can also follow along, it will almost be the same). Find here how to setup IBM Liberty Profile.
