Package picocli.spring.boot.autoconfigure

Provides classes and interfaces for picocli Spring Boot Auto-configuration.

The existence of this class allows Spring to auto-configure any fields of type picocli.CommandLine.IFactory in a @org.springframework.stereotype.Component-annotated class. See the example below.

 import picocli.CommandLine;
 import picocli.CommandLine.IFactory;

 import org.springframework.boot.CommandLineRunner;
 import org.springframework.boot.ExitCodeGenerator;
 import org.springframework.stereotype.Component;

 public class MyApplicationRunner implements CommandLineRunner, ExitCodeGenerator {

        private final MyCommand myCommand;

        private final IFactory factory; // auto-configured to inject PicocliSpringFactory

        private int exitCode;

          public MyApplicationRunner(MyCommand myCommand, IFactory factory) {
                this.myCommand = myCommand;
                this.factory = factory;

    public void run(String... args) throws Exception {
                exitCode = new CommandLine(myCommand, factory).execute(args);

    public int getExitCode() {
                return exitCode;
