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.

Goal and adoption of JHipster

The goal of JHipster is to provide developers a platform where you can focus on your business logic rather than worrying about wiring different technologies together, and also that provides a great developer experience. Of course, you can use available boilerplate within your organization or from the internet and try to wire them up together, but then you will be wasting a lot of time re-inventing the wheel. With JHipster, you will create a modern web application or microservice architecture with all the required technologies wired together and working out-of-the-box, such as the following:

  • A robust and high-performance Spring Framework-based Java stack on the backend
  • A rich mobile-first frontend with Angular or React supported by Bootstrap
  • A battle-tested microservice architecture unifying Netflix OSS, Elastic stack, and Docker
  • A great tooling and development workflow using Maven/Gradle, webpack, and Yarn/NPM
  • Out-of-the-box continuous integration using Jenkins,...
