FINERACT-700 struggles to get "./gradlew integrationTest" working under an up-to-date Gradle version, due to the gradle-tomcat-plugin failing to start Tomcat. The problem can also be seen (on that PR, as it stands right now) via ./gradlew tomcatrunwar.
https://github.com/bmuschko/gradle-tomcat-plugin mentions that its author "I don't have much time to contribute anymore. In practice this means far less activity, responsiveness on issues and new releases from my end."
What we IMHO really should do instead is to ditch our use of gradle-tomcat-plugin and just use Spring Boot's very nice built-in support for Integration Test, see here:
- https://www.baeldung.com/spring-boot-testing (see 7. Integration Testing with @SpringBootTest)
I wouldn't have time for this, but perhaps someone would like to pick this up?
