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.

Using JHipster modules

JHipster modules and blueprints are a great way to add more features and functionality to your generated code. There are many modules (55 at the time of writing) available to choose from in the JHipster marketplace (, and you can also build your own modules to suit your needs. Some of the modules worth noticing are as follows:

  • Ignite JHipster: This provides a React Native boilerplate for JHipster apps. An ideal way to kickstart your React Native application using JHipster as the backend.
  • Entity Audit: This module enables entity audits. It uses Hibernate audit hooks to create a custom audit for entity CRUD operations. It also provides Javers as the auditing mechanism instead of the custom Hibernate auditing. It also provides a nice UI to view the audits in an Angular application. It will enable auditing for new entities as well as existing entities.
  • Ionic: This provides an Ionic client for JHipster apps. It is an ideal solution...
