I am trying to control a servo from a web service. I have used Springboot and ServoBlaster library.

Although these ways to handle the servo work as a standalone application, nothing of the above works through Springboot.

I am running the application as root ./gradlew bootrun --no-daemon. The handling of the other GPIOs is perfect.

Do I have to apply any weird setting at Springboot?

Should I access the servo pin differently?

  • I have never heard of Springboot. For the sake of others and myself it would be useful if you added links to the items you are talking about.

The whole problem was with the servod of the ServoBlaster. It was accidentally killed and I had to run it once again!
