This tutorial walks you through: build a Boot web project, create a Dockerfile, build a Docker image, then run it in Docker.
Create a Spring Boot web service
First, let's generate a Spring Boot web project. Open a browser, go to http://start.spring.io, in Search for dependencies bar type Web, then click Generate Project button.
The generated source code is saved to a download folder as demo.zip. Extract it to your IDE's workspace. Import the project by using the wizard Existing Maven Projects.
