Zero Dependency Demo

Spring Boot – Hello world program.

You will need IDE (IntelliJ / Eclipse). 
I used - Eclipse IDE for Java Developers. Version: Oxygen.3a Release (4.7.3a)

My JDK is - C:\Users\JANI PLASTIC>java -version
java version "1.8.0_301"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_301-b09)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.301-b09, mixed mode)

OPEN https://start.spring.io/

Choose options as shown, GENERATE without clicking on ADD DEPENDENCIES.

Clicking on GENERATE downloads zip file named after your “Artifact”.

OPEN (not import) as project through “File System” in IDE such as IntelliJ or Eclipse

Modify <YourProjectName>Application.java . Add following line in main() method.

System.out.println("Hello World! \n Welcome to Empty Zero Dependency Spring Boot Sample Application which does nothing!");

Run this JAVA file as Application to see output as below.
