Java Question

Spring initializer project throwing BeanCreationException

I'm trying to get a simple spring project to work, I downloaded a starter project from here (Maven, with only the JPA dependency as I want to use hibernate):

https://start.spring.io/

I then ran:

mvn clean install


which threw a lot of errors:

--- exec-maven-plugin:1.2.1:exec (default-cli) @ project ---

The
spring.io
doesn't say if I should do any further setting up, so I'm assuming that the project should just work straight out of the box.

Could there be something wrong with my computer (maybe I don't have a specific library installed?), as this happened to me on another project.

The pom that
start.spring.io
generates is this:

Answer

Description in stack trace is correct. In order to use JPA and spring JPA support, you need to some kind of SQL data source dependency on classpath that is supported by Spring Boot. This can be full blown SQL database like Postgres or MySQL. It can also be some small DB engine commonly used for testing purposes, like H2.

So to use H2 for example, just include below dependency:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.h2database</groupId>
    <artifactId>h2</artifactId>
</dependency>
