Goals available for this plugin:

Goal Description
spring-boot:build-info Generate a build-info.properties file based the content of the current MavenProject.
spring-boot:help Display help information on spring-boot-maven-plugin.
Call mvn spring-boot:help -Ddetail=true -Dgoal=<goal-name> to display parameter details.
spring-boot:repackage Repackages existing JAR and WAR archives so that they can be executed from the command line using java -jar. With layout=NONE can also be used simply to package a JAR with nested dependencies (and no main class, so not executable).
spring-boot:run Run an executable archive application.
spring-boot:start Start a spring application. Contrary to the run goal, this does not block and allows other goal to operate on the application. This goal is typically used in integration test scenario where the application is started before a test suite and stopped after.
spring-boot:stop Stop a spring application that has been started by the "start" goal. Typically invoked once a test suite has completed.
