deploy spring boot jar fie

March 10, 2017 2.7k views


I am considering opting $5 plan with digitalOcean.

I would like to know the following.

  • I have a spring boot generated jar file (jdk 1.7). How easy is it to deploy this jar in the host space?
  • my app uses mysql. How can I create a mysql db in digitalOcean and set my app to connect to this db?

  • DigitalOcean offer a VPS, so it's essentially like your own server, where you can install one of the allowed operating systems (CentOS, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, among other).
    You have to setup everything yourself, that being Java runtime, MySQL server and whatever else you wish to use.
    And you have to maintain and update everything.
