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.

Orchestrating your containers is the most difficult task to perform in the microservices environment. Kubernetes, as a container orchestrator, stands out in solving this. We have seen how to generate the configuration file for Kubernetes with JHipster, followed by deploying the application to the Google Cloud.

So far, we've seen how we can develop and deploy an e-commerce application using JHipster. We started with a monolith and we successfully scaled it into a microservice architecture, all with the help of JHipster and the various tools and technologies it supports. With this chapter, our journey of developing the e-commerce web application comes to an end and we hope you had a wonderful experience following it though.

In the next chapter, we will see how you can use JHipster further to create an application with a React client-side application, so stay tuned.
