Spring Boot remote shell - Handy :)

Following on from my previous blog in which I implemented a POC application using Spring Boot, Spring Actuator, Apache Camel and Hawt.io, I have now added Spring Remote Shell.

It's complete overkill, given all of the other technologies I have shoe-horned into the application, but what the hell.  By adding `compile("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-remote-shell")` to my Gradle file I enabled ssh access to a command line within my application.

Additionally adding `compile("org.apache.camel:camel-commands-spring-boot:2.17.2")` includes a suite of camel commands to view and interact with the camel routes in your application.

Just to be clear, I wouldn't use all of these in a production application, it's complete overkill.  But is certainly make development much easier, and interesting.
