Spring Boot Shopping Cart Web App


This is a demo project for practicing Spring + Thymeleaf. The idea was to build some basic shopping cart web app.

It was made using Spring Boot, Spring Security, Thymeleaf, Spring Data JPA, Spring Data REST and Docker. Database is in memory H2.

There is a login and registration functionality included.

Users can shop for products. Each user has his own shopping cart (session functionality). Checkout is transactional.


Configuration Files

Folder src/resources/ contains config files for shopping-cart Spring Boot application.

  • src/resources/ - main configuration file. Here it is possible to change admin username/password, as well as change the port number.

How to run

There are several ways to run the application. You can run it from the command line with included Maven Wrapper, Maven or Docker.

Once the app starts, go to the web browser and visit http://localhost:8070/home

Admin username: admin

Admin password: admin

User username: user

User password: password

Maven Wrapper

Using the Maven Plugin

Go to the root folder of the application and type:

$ chmod +x scripts/mvnw
$ scripts/mvnw spring-boot:run

Using Executable Jar

Or you can build the JAR file with

$ scripts/mvnw clean package

Then you can run the JAR file:

$ java -jar target/shopping-cart-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar


Open a terminal and run the following commands to ensure that you have valid versions of Java and Maven installed:

$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_102"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_102-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.102-b14, mixed mode)
$ mvn -v
Apache Maven 3.3.9 (bb52d8502b132ec0a5a3f4c09453c07478323dc5; 2015-11-10T16:41:47+00:00)
Maven home: /usr/local/Cellar/maven/3.3.9/libexec
Java version: 1.8.0_102, vendor: Oracle Corporation

Using the Maven Plugin

The Spring Boot Maven plugin includes a run goal that can be used to quickly compile and run your application. Applications run in an exploded form, as they do in your IDE. The following example shows a typical Maven command to run a Spring Boot application:

$ mvn spring-boot:run

Using Executable Jar

To create an executable jar run:

$ mvn clean package

To run that application, use the java -jar command, as follows:

$ java -jar target/shopping-cart-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar

To exit the application, press ctrl-c.


It is possible to run shopping-cart using Docker:

Build Docker image:

$ mvn clean package
$ docker build -t shopping-cart:dev -f docker/Dockerfile .

Run Docker container:

$ docker run --rm -i -p 8070:8070 \
      --name shopping-cart \
Helper script

It is possible to run all of the above with helper script:

$ chmod +x scripts/
$ scripts/


Folder docker contains:

  • docker/shopping-cart/Dockerfile - Docker build file for executing shopping-cart Docker image. Instructions to build artifacts, copy build artifacts to docker image and then run app on proper port with proper configuration file.

Util Scripts

  • scripts/ - util script for running shopping-cart Docker container using docker/Dockerfile


Tests can be run by executing following command from the root of the project:

$ mvn test
