How to Populate a H2 database using SQL scripts in a specific folder  RSS feed

I am writing cucumber tests in my Spring Boot project, I need to create a H2 (in-memory database) first. Then, the cucumber step definitions will use data from the database to validate if my application is working.

The problem that I am having is that the H2 database is not being created in the first place.

Here is the database section of my application.yml:

My cucumber tests are stored in src/integTest/acceptTests.

I have a couple of SQL files to create & populate the H2 database: schema.sql & data.sql. These are stored in src/integTest/resources

I think, by default Spring looks for these files in src/main/resources, but I need to somehow point them to the integTest/resources via my application.yml

Does anyone have any suggestions on what changes I need to make in order to do this?

I can post further code if it is required.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!
