Sets up the whole Spring infrastructure stack that will turn your microservice into a beauty.

Check out the wiki to have a deeper insight into the project.


Currently we have two lines of versions.

Version greater than 2.0.0

This version is in the "master" branch and it contains micro-infra-spring integrated with Spring Cloud. We want to tightly couple micro-infra-spring with Spring Cloud thus this branch will be developed. All the new features will be also developed for this branch.

This version is backwards compatible - you can use both the old (microservice.json) and the new (Spring Cloud Zookeeper approach). To enable the new approach you have to provide the


Versions smaller than 2.0.0

All versions smaller than 2.0.0 are related to the micro-infra-spring version that does not contain Spring Cloud integration (other than the micro-infra-config module). The code containing that version is present in the "legacy" branch. This branch in general will not be maintained. If someone wants a feature to be present here he first needs to develop it in the "master" branch and then backport it to the "legacy" branch. The "legacy" branch in general will not be maintained if it won't be essential.


Check boot-microservice for an example of a working application

Check spring-cloud-zookeeper documentation on how to register your application with properties in Zookeeper

My application doesn't seem to use SpringCloud capabilities

Ensure that you have ALSO passed the

profile. For example:
./gradlew bootRun -Dspring.profiles.active=prod,springCloud -DAPP_ENV=prod -DCONFIG_FOLDER=/properties -Dserver.port=9090 -Dspring.application.name=foo

Wrong version of spring boot


You may find issues like

. That most likely means that you have different versions of Spring on your classpath.

ClientHttpRequestFactory duplicated beans


With Ribbon coming in you have another

@Autowired @Qualifier("requestFactory") ClientHttpRequestFactory clientHttpRequestFactory;

ServiceConfigurationResolver missing


If you're using

profile you might get the following exception
Unsatisfied dependency expressed through ... of type [com.ofg.infrastructure.discovery.ServiceConfigurationResolver]: : 
No qualifying bean of type [com.ofg.infrastructure.discovery.ServiceConfigurationResolver] found for dependency: 
expected at least 1 bean which qualifies as autowire candidate for this dependency. 
Dependency annotations: {}; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: 
No qualifying bean of type [com.ofg.infrastructure.discovery.ServiceConfigurationResolver] found for dependency: 
expected at least 1 bean which qualifies as autowire candidate for this dependency. Dependency annotations: {}


You have legacy code that requires JSON representation whereas right now you have to use the ZookeeperDependencies class. Together with ZookeeperDiscoveryProperties to retrieve the realm.

I want to use the old functionality of micro-infra but it blows up with Spring Cloud stuff

Ensure that you have a

file on your classpath that deregisters everything related to Spring Cloud. For example:
spring.cloud.zookeeper.enabled: false
spring.cloud.zookeeper.discovery.enabled: false
ribbon.zookeeper.enabled: false
spring.autoconfigure.exclude: org.springframework.cloud.client.loadbalancer.LoadBalancerAutoConfiguration

Trying to connect to Zipkin

You might have such an exception when trying to boot up the application:

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'spanCollector' defined in class path resource [org/springframework/cloud/sleuth/zipkin/ZipkinAutoConfiguration.class]: Bean instantiation via factory method failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Failed to instantiate [com.github.kristofa.brave.zipkin.ZipkinSpanCollector]: Factory method 'spanCollector' threw exception; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalStateException: org.apache.thrift.transport.TTransportException: java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

That means that your application is trying to connect to Zipkin server and fails to do so. This will happen when you start your app in



There are two approaches: - set

to false in
- set
to a value that contains


We want to connect to Zipkin only if one has the production profile turned on and he has deployed his application to the production environment. One can override this functionality by setting the

Your .yaml properties file is not taken into account

You might find out that your .yaml file doesn't override .properties files. This is caused by way spring-boot is processing directories when looking for properties. For now there is no solution for this issue.

Missing org.springframework.web.client.RestTemplate

If you getting

NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: No qualifying bean of type [org.springframework.web.client.RestTemplate]

That means that you don't have any RestTemplate instance in your context


Add to your bootstrap.properites/.yml file this line:
