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.

Generated Docker Compose files

By default, JHipster will generate Docker Compose files that enable us to run the application completely in the containerized environment, irrespective of the options chosen. For example, in the gateway application that we have generated, the following files are generated by default under src/main/docker:

  • sonar.yml: This file creates and starts a SonarQube server
  • mysql.yml: This file creates and starts a MySQL database server and creates a user and schema
  • jhipster-registry.yml: This file creates and starts a JHipster Registry service
  • app.yml: This is the main file that creates and starts the application along with services such as JHipster registry and the database

In addition to this, JHipster also creates a Dockerfile, which helps you to containerize the application alone.

Then we can see a folder called central-server-config. This will be used as a central configuration server for the JHipster Registry. 

When the registry and the application are running in Docker...
