Deploying RESTful service to AWS with Spring boot

I am trying to deploy a simple Spring Boot RESTful service to AWS beanstalk. I am using mvn clean package to get the war. This is my code:

//@SpringBootApplication
@Configuration
@ComponentScan
@EnableAutoConfiguration
public class Application {

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

package hello;

import java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicLong;

import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.PathVariable;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestParam;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

@RestController
public class GreetingController {

private static final String template = "Hello, %s!";
private final AtomicLong counter = new AtomicLong();

@RequestMapping("/greeting")
public Greeting greeting(@RequestParam(value = "name", defaultValue = "World") String name) {
return new Greeting(counter.incrementAndGet(), String.format(template, name));
}

@RequestMapping("/hello/{name}")
String hello(@PathVariable String name) {
return "Hello, " + name + "!";
}
}

But when I try to access (load-balancer-url)/hello/World I get a 404 error. Any help on what I am doing wrong? thank you.

Spring Boot | Create a deployable war file

From the docs:

The first step in producing a deployable war file is to provide a SpringBootServletInitializer subclass and override its configure method. This makes use of Spring Framework’s Servlet 3.0 support and allows you to configure your application when it’s launched by the servlet container. Typically, you update your application’s main class to extend SpringBootServletInitializer:

@SpringBootApplication
public class Application extends SpringBootServletInitializer {

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

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

}
