Linux+Spring Boot – autostart apps with crontab

I always felt like there should be a better way to autostart spring boot apps on server boot. Wrapping as linux service, editing rc.local, etc – feels like unnecessarily tedious and painful.

Here’s my new favorite:

  crontab -e

add:

@reboot /path/to/my/app/run.sh

Works like a charm.
