Deploying a Spring application as a Linux service behind nginx (Ubuntu Server 16.04)


1. Create, build and run locally the application

The application to deploy is a JPA Data with REST from the official spring docs. But, instead of the system wide gradle mentioned in the Spring documentation we'll be using the ./gradlew wrapper since this is the recommended way of doing things. The gradle wrapper is usually committed to the source control.
