By: Deepu K Sasidharan, Sendil Kumar Nellaiyapen

Overview of this book

JHipster is a development platform to generate, develop, and deploy Spring Boot and Angular/React applications and Spring microservices. It provides you with a variety of tools that will help you quickly build modern web applications. This book will be your guide to building full stack applications with Spring and Angular using the JHipster tool set. You will begin by understanding what JHipster is and the various tools and technologies associated with it. You will learn the essentials of a full stack developer before getting hands-on and building a monolithic web application with JHipster. From here you will learn the JHipster Domain Language with entity modeling and entity creation using JDL and JDL studio. Moving on, you will be introduced to client side technologies such as Angular and Bootstrap and will delve into technologies such as Spring Security, Spring MVC, and Spring Data. You will learn to build and package apps for production with various deployment options such as Heroku and more. During the course of the book, you will be introduced to microservice server-side technologies and how to break your monolithic application with a database of your choice. Next, the book takes you through cloud deployment with microservices on Docker and Kubernetes. Going forward, you will learn to build your client side with React and master JHipster best practices. By the end of the book, you will be able to leverage the power of the best tools available to build modern web applications.

Chapter 10. Working with Microservices

In the previous chapter, we created a gateway and two microservices using JHipster; now, let's see how we can further develop our microservices to include our domain model and additional business logic. Since we are converting our online shop monolith to a microservice architecture, we will see how the domain model we created using JDL can be converted into a microservice domain model. But before we can start, we need to set up some tools in order to work with microservices.

So in this chapter, we will see the following topics:

  • How to set up JHipster Registry
  • How to run the microservice setup locally
  • Creating the domain model using JDL
  • Generating the domain model in JHipster

Let's get started!
