We use hierarchically organised Spring boot property files in our application. For example,
Our application.properties will just contain a single line.
spring.profiles.include = logging, kafka, oracle, misc
Where all the values separated by comma here are other property files (namely
application-logging.properties and so on) that it's referring to (We chose this for reusability in different environments)
And I have another properties file
application-h2.properties that can be included while testing. So while I test, my application.properties will look like this.
spring.profiles.include = logging, kafka, h2, misc
The problem that's been bugging me here is that my application is always considering h2 database when it starts up, although I include oracle.
The only way I have to get Oracle enabled is that I have remove the h2 properties file, and also remove the h2 dependency from the gradle build file.
Appreciate your help!
