Simple Hello World App by Using Snowdrop BOM Dependency Management

According to its website (snowdrop.dev), snowdrop is a cloud native spring boot app which is a project within the Red Hat community. From syntax perspective, it’s pretty much the same as ordinary Spring Boot and we can see on below code as an example.

Let’s start by creating a new java project with pom.xml, the highlighted part here is the bom configuration provided by Snowdrop.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
         xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">

        <dependencies>
            <dependency>
                <groupId>dev.snowdrop</groupId>
                <artifactId>snowdrop-dependencies</artifactId>
                <version>${snowdrop-bom.version}</version>
                <type>pom</type>

            </dependency>
        </dependencies>
    </dependencyManagement>

    <dependencies>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
            <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-web</artifactId>
        </dependency>
    </dependencies>


    <build>
        <pluginManagement>
            <plugins>
                <plugin>
                    <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
                    <artifactId>spring-boot-maven-plugin</artifactId>
                    <version>${spring-boot.version}</version>
                </plugin>
            </plugins>
        </pluginManagement>
    </build>

</project>

Next is creating an ordinary rest api, like a regular spring boot.

package com.edw;

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

@SpringBootApplication
public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(Main.class, args);
    }
}
package com.edw.controller;

import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.GetMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

@RestController
public class HelloWorldController {

    @GetMapping("/")
    public Map index() {
        return new HashMap() {{
            put("hello", "world");
        }};
    }
}

Build, and run it thru IDE. And can test by using a curl command,

curl -kv http://localhost:8080/
