Step 6 : Test the jar file by running it - Fail


I’m following hte instructions and i’ve managed to move upto step 6.
testin the jar file fails with this error
failed to load api configuration … Configuration is null … : getDataSource() HikariCP !
xception in thread “main” java.lang.NullPointerException
at java.base/

at org.nearbyshops.Main.setupFirebaseAdminSDK(
at org.nearbyshops.Main.main(
Exception in thread “Timer-0” java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.nearbyshops.Main$
at java.base/java.util.TimerThread.mainLoop(
at java.base/

Not sure how to go around this. I can share my api config file if necessary.
Any help is very much appreciated

we no longer support manual installation … its quite difficult and complicated … for an average person.

Try Installing using Docker … its easy and takes very less time !

Hey Summet.
Finally Managed…
I had missed this command several times :frowning: docker exec -it nbs_api_container bash

Thank you very much for the app. Now am looking for admin dashboard in Bali…
