Deploy Spring Boot 1.3.2 IBM WAS 8.5

I'm facing a problem deploying a simple spring boot web on IBM Websphere 8.5.5.8 using full profile

WAS is by default using servlet 3.0 and java 1.7.

The application does not do much, just display a page with a "Hi - [current-date]".

When deploying the war file, we see the following in server log output:

[2/3/16 13:30:44:857 AST] 00000078 AdminHelper A ADMN1008I: An attempt is made to start the simpledemo_war application. (User ID = defaultWIMFileBasedRealm/wps_admin)

Spring boot does not seem to start, I'm not seeing anything in the logs to indicate that my servlet is being initialized.
I'm using spring boot with maven and java 1.7. I don't have web.xml file in the war.
Here is my Boot Application class:

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

@SpringBootApplication
public class DemoSimpleApplication {

public static void main(String[] args) {
SpringApplication.run(DemoSimpleApplication.class, args);
}
}


Project POM is:

UPDATE-1:
I have followed Spring guide on deploying to external containers, the same war works on JBoss EAP 6.2 and tomcat 8

UPDATE-2:
added a new class (I don't know how I forgot it) that extends SpringBootServletInitializer and removed spring-boot-devtools from POM, See Andy Wilkinson answer..

Answer Source

I believe that you can safely ignore the warning messages from WAS. They're rather noisy but they won't stop your application from starting successfully.

The problem appears to be that you don't have a SpringBootServletInitializer in your application. If you did, it would have been listed in this log message:

[2/3/16 13:30:52:873 AST] 00000078 webapp        I com.ibm.ws.webcontainer.webapp.WebApp log SRVE0292I: Servlet Message - [simpledemo_war#simpledemo.war]:.Spring WebApplicationInitializers detected on classpath: [org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure[email protected]fcdf38eb]

The easiest way to provide one is to update DemoSimpleApplication to extend SpringBootServletInitializer and override its configure method:

@SpringBootApplication
public class DemoSimpleApplication extends SpringBootServletInitializer {

    @Override
    protected SpringApplicationBuilder configure(SpringApplicationBuilder application) {
        return application.sources(DemoSimpleApplication.class);
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(DemoSimpleApplication.class, args);
    }

}
