How to run the library externally?

See original GitHub issue

Good afternoon,

I am doing a POC about the library running in this way:

java -cp ./target/spring-boot-chaos-poc-0.1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar \
-Dloader.path=chaos-monkey-spring-boot-2.0.0.jar \
org.springframework.boot.loader.PropertiesLauncher \

and if the property: chaos.monkey.watcher.controller: true appear in the configuration, the execution fails.

Error starting ApplicationContext. To display the conditions report re-run your application with 'debug' enabled.

You can test it in the POC. I have isolated the scenario in this branch:

Hi @MrBW,

yes, the bug was fixed and thank you, the library is pretty useful. Please, release the new jar to upgrade the POC with final jar.

I fixed it, I realy fixed it! 😃

Please take a look at:

Just mvn clean package and run

I have switched from compile-time to load-time weaving.

Test it and share your results, please.
