How do I tell Spring Boot which main class to use for the executable jar?



Execution default of goal 
org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-maven-plugin:1.0.1.RELEASE:repackage 
failed: 
Unable to find a single main class from the following candidates

My project has more than one class with a main method. How do I tell the Spring Boot Maven plugin which of the classes it should use as the main class?

Answer

Add your start class in your pom:

<properties>
    <!-- The main class to start by executing java -jar -->
    <start-class>com.mycorp.starter.HelloWorldApplication</start-class>
</properties>

or

<build>
<plugins>
    <plugin>
        <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
        <artifactId>spring-boot-maven-plugin</artifactId>             
        <configuration>    
            <mainClass>com.mycorp.starter.HelloWorldApplication</mainClass>
        </configuration>
    </plugin>
</plugins>
</build>
