As explained in the its reference documentation, Spring Boot provides a spring-boot-autoconfigure-processor.
This should be added as an optional dependency to each module that contains AutoConfiguration classes (and the `spring.factories` file declaring them).
Once configured, this annotation processor will generate metadata at compile time and will help Spring Boot process those auto-configurations without loading the actual classes in some cases.
In this project, the several modules are declaring auto-configurations but are not using this annotation processor. Could you add it to the build files?
Once added, this should generate a spring-autoconfigure-metadata.properties file in the target/classes/META-INF folder of earch module.
