Unable To Run VueJS SPA With Spring Boot

I have VueJS single page appication which I want to move to the Spring Boot project and run it in the production environment. With npm run build I genereted these files:

  Build complete.

And I copied them to /resources/static folder. When I run Spring Boot project I'm able to open index.html file, but all of the related resources like js, css and img files returns 404 Not Found Exception. I can't even load them with direct link in the browser.

This is very strange, because when I copy and paste, for example, static/css/app.8dfb1913ee552ff55ff81ea142c3f782.css file and change only one digit in the name, I'm able to load it with the browser.

How is that possible?



Looks like the coping files to the resource folder is very fragile in Spring Boot. With those exactly steps I was able to run my project:

  1. Stop application (the embeded Tomcat)
  2. Delete all files in /resources/static folder
  3. Copy new html/css/js/img files
  4. Clean and Build the project
  5. Run the application
