Scheduler not running in Spring Boot

Tags: , ,

I have created a Spring Boot application. I have configured my class that contains the scheduler method startService(). Below is my code :

Service Class :

import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.scheduling.annotation.Scheduled;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Component;


public class EnverseDemoService {

    BossExtChangeRepository bossExtChangeRepository;

    @Scheduled(fixedRate = 30000)
    public void startService() {
        System.out.println("Calling startService()");
        BossExtChange bossExtChange = bossExtChangeRepository.findById(5256868L);
        System.out.println("Ending startService()");

Main Class :

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.PropertySource;
import org.springframework.scheduling.annotation.EnableScheduling;

public class EnverseDemoApplication {

    public static void main(String[] args) {, args);

I have annotated the class as @Component and also method as @Scheduled(fixedRate = 30000) that will running as a scheduler. But while running the application as Spring Boot the scheduler does not trigger. The console show the below message:

2016-02-03 10:56:47.736  INFO 10136 --- [       Thread-2] j.LocalContainerEntityManagerFactoryBean : Closing JPA EntityManagerFactory for persistence unit 'default'

Can anyone please help me out.


I was finally able to solve the above issue, I changed the package of my service class EnverseDemoService from package; to;. This is because if the main configuration class EnverseDemoApplication is present in the package All the other classes in the boot application should be in the qualifying package. Eg:*;
