Goals

Cromwell remembers everything it knows!

Let's get started!

  • Start the MySQL docker container with the following line:
docker run -p 3306:3306 --name NameOfTheContainer -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=YourPassword -e MYSQL_DATABASE=DatabaseName -e MYSQL_USER=ChooseAName -e MYSQL_PASSWORD=YourOtherPassword -d mysql/mysql-server:5.5
  • Update your application.conf file.
database {
  profile = "slick.jdbc.MySQLProfile$"
  db {
    driver = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"
    url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/DatabaseName?rewriteBatchedStatements=true&useSSL=false"
    user = "ChooseAName"
    password = "YourOtherPassword"
    connectionTimeout = 5000
  }
}

Add the line above, below the all other lines in your application.conf. Replace "DatabaseName", "ChooseAName" and "YourOtherPassword" with the values you choose in step 2, preserving the double quotes.

Test it by running your server with the updated application.conf:

java -Dconfig.file=/path/to/application.conf/ -jar cromwell-[version].jar ...
