Full Stack Development with JHipster,

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.

Entity generation on microservices


Our JDL is ready to use now. The next step will be generating the entities in the gateway and the services. To start with, we will download our JDL files from the JDL studio. Once downloaded, we will move the files into our gateway and microservice applications respectively.

Once moved, run the following command after navigating into the gateway application folder. This will create the entities for the gateway and also create the UI for the microservice entities in the gateway:

> cd e-commerce-app/online-store 
> jhipster import-jdl online-store.jh
> jhipster import-jdl ../notification/notification-jdl.jh --skip-ui-  
   grouping
> jhipster import-jdl ../invoice/invoice-jdl.jh --skip-ui-grouping

Note

The --skip-ui-grouping flag disables the client-side entity component grouping behavior for microservices introduced in JHipster 5.x. This helps us to cherry-pick our changes from the monolithic application without many conflicts. This grouping behavior...
