Creating an Environment-Specific Data Loader in Spring Boot

Creating an Environment-Specific Data Loader in Spring Boot

What is the Benefit of Creating an Environment-Specific Data Load Architecture?

Quite often when developing an application, there is a need to bootstrap data into your application. This data is often different, depending on the environment that you are deploying it to. When using Spring Boot to build an application, the process becomes extremely simple, and involves three simple steps:

  • Implement org.springframework.context.ApplicationListener
  • Create an Abstract Data Loader using TemplateMethod pattern ( only necessary if you have common data that will need to be loaded into all environments).
  • Implement environment specific implementations using the org.springframework.context.annotation.Profile annotation.
