How to CI deploy Spring Boot app to App platform?

I have a Spring Boot application with multi modules:

  • ‘data’
  • ‘domain’
  • ‘web’ Admin Website
  • ‘api’ Rest API

I am using gradle to build and run my app.

To run web admin I would run the following command:

gradle web:build
gradle web:bootRun

To run REST API I would run the following command:

gradle api:build
gradle api:bootRun

I want to run my Spring Boot in DigitalOcean App Platform.

I want to link it with GitHub.

Hi there,

The App Platform supports two ways to build an image for your app: Cloud Native Buildpacks and Dockerfiles.

Unfortunately Java is not in the list of the supported buildpacks which you can check here:

This means that you will need to use a Dockerfile to deploy your Java app to the DigitalOcean App Platform:

Hope that this helps!
