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.

The next steps to pursue


JHipster supports a lot of technologies and learning about all of them would require an insane amount of time and effort; it cannot be done in a single book. Each technology supported would require a book on its own to learn and master it. If you are already familiar with the core concepts of web development, you will have a fairly good idea how a JHipster application works by now. We hope this book gave you a good introduction to the technologies and JHipster itself. But this in itself isn't sufficient; you will have to keep learning more to become a master. The following are some of the tasks that you can pursue to hone your skills in web development using JHipster further. But, before that, we would recommend that you learn more about Spring Framework and the Angular/React ecosystem to complement what you have learned in this book.
