Building for production

To optimize the expper client for production, run:

./gradlew -Pprod clean bootRepackage

To ensure everything worked, run:

java -jar build/libs/*.war --spring.profiles.active=prod

Then navigate to http://localhost:9000 in your browser.


Unit tests are run by [Karma][] and written with [Jasmine][]. They're located in src/test/javascript and can be run with:

grunt test

UI end-to-end tests are powered by [Protractor][], which is built on top of WebDriverJS. They're located in src/test/javascript/e2e and can be run by starting Spring Boot in one terminal (./gradlew bootRun) and running the tests (grunt itest) in a second one.
