Understanding the Spring Petclinic application with a few diagrams

<a href="https://speakerdeck.com/michaelisvy/spring-petclinic-sample-application">See the presentation here</a>

Running petclinic locally

    git clone https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-petclinic.git
    cd spring-petclinic
    ./mvnw tomcat7:run

You can then access petclinic here: http://localhost:9966/petclinic/

In case you find a bug/suggested improvement for Spring Petclinic

Our issue tracker is available here: https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-petclinic/issues

Database configuration

In its default configuration, Petclinic uses an in-memory database (HSQLDB) which
gets populated at startup with data. A similar setup is provided for MySql in case a persistent database configuration is needed.
Note that whenever the database type is changed, the data-access.properties file needs to be updated and the mysql-connector-java artifact from the pom.xml needs to be uncommented.

You may start a MySql database with docker:

docker run -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=petclinic -e MYSQL_DATABASE=petclinic -p 3306:3306 mysql:5.7.8

Working with Petclinic in Eclipse/STS

prerequisites

The following items should be installed in your system:

Note: when m2e is available, there is an m2 icon in Help -> About dialog.
If m2e is not there, just follow the install process here: http://eclipse.org/m2e/download/

Steps:

1) In the command line

git clone https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-petclinic.git

2) Inside Eclipse

File -> Import -> Maven -> Existing Maven project

Petclinic uses XML configuration by default. In case you'd like to use Java Config instead, there is a Java Config branch available <a href="https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-petclinic/tree/javaconfig">here</a>. Thanks to Antoine Rey for his contribution.

Interaction with other open source projects

One of the best parts about working on the Spring Petclinic application is that we have the opportunity to work in direct contact with many Open Source projects. We found some bugs/suggested improvements on various topics such as Spring, Spring Data, Bean Validation and even Eclipse! In many cases, they've been fixed/implemented in just a few days.
Here is a list of them:
