SSL in Spring Boot using GoDaddy certificate on EC2

In this article, we will be going to see how we can achieve the HTTPS in the spring boot application . You will get lots of items on how to use the self-generated certificate with Spring Boot. But today we are going to use the CA generated certificates with the Spring Boot so that our application will work on HTTPS. We need the following things to work: CA certificates including, private key and certificate. In this article, we are using the GoDaddy wild card certificate. Spring Boot application OpenSSL library Convert the certificate and private key to PKCS 12 First of all, we need to convert the CA certificate to .p12 format . We need to have OpenSSL on the system to work with command. Also, we need to have all files in the same directory where we are running this command. The command required to covert the same: openssl pkcs12 -export -in [ceritificate-name] -inkey [private-key] -name [host] -out [new-file.p12] Here replace the values: [ceritificate-name] with

First Time Deployment of war file to IBM Cloud

In this post, I will put a very basic deployment of Java war file on the IBM Cloud . Previously, IBM Cloud was known as IBM Bluemix . But in this post, I will prefer using the IBM Cloud and not the bluemix. I was facing problem while deploying the war file on the IBM Cloud for the first time. I am not a DevOps person who knows about the servers as well. But my job was to deploy the application on the IBM Cloud I need to do it. So, I tried googling around but have no idea about how to do it. There are some examples are given but they are not so basic to be understood by a developer who wants to deploy the application in Cloud. But I manage to do it. And I will explain all the steps that are needed to deploy the application to the Cloud. The application I am going to deploy is the Spring Boot application. Requirements 1. IBM Cloud account. 2. IBM Bluemix CLI 3. war file (spring-boot application) IBM Cloud  Setup After signing for IBM Cloud, go to the IBM Cloud Dashboard. IB
