Build Status Maven Central

Bootique is a minimally opinionated java launcher and integration technology. It is intended for building container-less runnable Java applications. With Bootique you can create REST services, webapps, jobs, DB migration tasks, etc. and run them as if they were simple commands. No JavaEE container required! Among other things Bootique is an ideal platform for Java microservices, as it allows you to create a fully-functional app with minimal setup.

Each Bootique app is a collection of modules interacting with each other via dependency injection. This GitHub project provides Bootique core. Bootique team also develops a number of important modules. A full list is available here.


You have two options:

  • Open an issue on GitHub with a label of "help wanted" or "question" (or "bug" if you think you found a bug).
  • Post a question on the Bootique forum.


For the impatient, here is how to get started with Bootique:

  • Declare the official module collection: xml <dependencyManagement> <dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>io.bootique.bom</groupId> <artifactId>bootique-bom</artifactId> <version>2.0.M1</version> <type>pom</type> <scope>import</scope> </dependency> </dependencies> </dependencyManagement>
  • Include the modules that you need: xml <dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>io.bootique.jersey</groupId> <artifactId>bootique-jersey</artifactId> </dependency> <dependency> <groupId>io.bootique.logback</groupId> <artifactId>bootique-logback</artifactId> </dependency> </dependencies>
  • Write your app: ```java package com.foo;

import io.bootique.Bootique;

public class Application { public static void main(String[] args) { Bootique .app(args) .autoLoadModules() .exec() .exit(); } }

It has ```main()``` method, so you can run it!
