Initialize Infisical

In order for Infisical to know which secrets to fetch, you’ll need to first initialize Infisical at the root of your project.

# navigate to the root of your of your project 
cd /path/to/project

# then initialize Infisical
infisical init

Start your application with Maven wrapper

To pass in Infisical secrets into your application, we will utilize the Infisical CLI to inject the secrets into the Maven wrapper executable, which is used to launch your application. The Maven wrapper executable should already be present in the root directory of your project.

infisical run -- ./mvnw spring-boot:run --quiet

Accessing injected secrets
  import org.springframework.core.env.Environment;

  public class DemoApplication {
    private Environment env;

    public void someMethod() {
