With the latest 2.0.5 release, Shopizer team has done a number of changes including migrating to Spring Boot ( 2.0.5 is based on Spring Boot 1.3.5 ). Please read Shopizer 2.0.5 for more details.
In this post, I will try to give you an overview of downloading Shopizer 2.0.5, build and run it on your local machine. Shopizer comes with a predefined demo DB which can be used out of the box to run demo application.
I am assuming that you have basic understanding of following terms
- JAVA ( we will be using JDK 1.8)
- Elastic Search ( 2.4.1 )
I have following configurations for this post
java version "1.8.0_101" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_101-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.101-b13, mixed mode
Apache Maven 3.3.9 (bb52d8502b132ec0a5a3f4c09453c07478323dc5; 2015-11-10T08:41:47-08:00) Java version: 1.8.0_101, vendor: Oracle Corporation Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8 OS name: "mac os x", version: "10.12.3", arch: "x86_64", family: "mac"
I will start by cloning Shopizer from GitHub ( You can use UI client ), for this post I am using Git command line tool
Shopizer uses Elastic Search for its front end search before we build Shopizer, we need to start Elastic Search server and make sure to update configuration with the correct port number and host information. Please update
with the correct value for Elastic Search
Once clone is completed, move to the root folder and run following command to build Shopizer
This will make sure that you have your build and packet created by Maven
Spring boot provides embedded support for Tomcat 8, which mean you don’t need standalone Tomcat to run your application.
Run the following command to start embedded Tomcat 8 for Shopizer 2.0.5
When you run your application, Spring Boot will detect that you have a Spring MVC controller and start up an embedded Apache Tomcat 8 instance, by default.
You are all set to run your shop and admin panel. Go ahead and use following URL to open shop and back-end system for Shopizer
Back-end / Admin : localhost:8080/admin/logon.html
use following details to log in to the backend
username : admin password: password
