In page 63 the book says: "We now have enough work done to start the configuration server. Let’s go ahead and start the configuration server using the mvn spring-boot:run command" but if you don't annotate the Application class with @EnableConfigServer the example does not work.

We would like to make sure that the text is as accurate as possible. Can you clarify where in the Chapter 3 text you were looking? Were you pointing out that this wasn't called out explicitly?

As you mentioned, the @EnableConfigServer annotation is required and can be found in the ConfigServerApplication code listing for Chapter 3 (see here).

Hi Joshua,

I'm talking about 3.2.1 Using Spring Cloud Configuration Server with the filesystem section.

You are correct, my point was that it wasn't called out explicitly. I think is an important annotation to talk about as Chapter 4's @EnableDiscoveryClient for instance.

I don't know if the book expects the reader to follow along with the github repository, i usually don't look at the source code provided unless i really need boilerplate code as in organizationservice's hibernate mappings/repository/services.

Hi Juanma,

Thanks for pointing that out. I will take a look at material and make it more explicit.

Thanks Again,
