In this tutorial, we will be integrating the H2 database in your Spring Boot application. Note that the H2 database is in the embedded mode.
You have created a Spring Boot application and would like to integrate with an H2 database.
In pom.xml, add the below dependency:
<!-- H2 Database --> <dependency> <groupId>com.h2database</groupId> <artifactId>h2</artifactId> </dependency>
In the application.properties file, add the below line to enable the H2 database:
# H2 spring.h2.console.enabled=true spring.h2.console.path=/h2 # Datasource spring.datasource.url=jdbc:h2:file:~/test spring.datasource.username=sa spring.datasource.password= spring.datasource.driver-class-name=org.h2.Driver
Take a Maven build and run the application as a Spring Boot app.
Open a browser and type http://localhost:8080/h2 to get the below image.
The yellow highlighted lines should match your application.properties file.
That's it! If you get stuck, kindly comment below.
