We all use Docker (and Docker Compose) to provide the external services we develop against, say, a PostgreSQL database. Wouldn’t it be great if Spring Boot knows there are external services needed and then auto-configures itself to use them? In this talk, we will show you an upcoming new feature of Spring Boot that will certainly improve your developer experience. It is the new Spring Boot suppport for Docker compose files that deals with all this, automatically depencting docker compose files in your projects, configuring and starting up those containers for you at the right moment in time, and nicely integrated in the spring boot lifecycle management. A new module in the Spring Boot ecosystem that will make the developers life easier. The session will - of course - include live demos.
