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.

Running a generated application locally

So we are all set now. We have generated a gateway application, we have a microservice with an SQL DB that runs with H2 in a dev profile and MySQL in a prod profile (invoice application), we have a microservice with MongoDB (notification application), and finally we just finished setting up our JHipster Registry locally. Now it is time to start everything locally and see how seamless our microservice setup works.

Gateway application pages

We head over to terminal now and then go to the e-commerce-app folder. Navigate to the online-store folder and start the gateway application in dev mode:

> cd online-store
> ./gradlew

This will start our Gateway application on port 8080. Let's open http://localhost:8080 in our favorite browser:
