Spring Boot Maven plugin features

The Spring Boot Maven plugin provides many convenient features:
  • It collects all the jars on the classpath and builds a single, runnable "├╝ber-jar", which makes it more convenient to execute and transport your service.
  • It searches for the public static void main() method to flag as a runnable class.
  • It provides a built-in dependency resolver that sets the version number to match Spring Boot dependencies. You can override any version you wish, but it will default to Boot’s chosen set of versions.
