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.

Chapter 3. Building Monolithic Web Applications with JHipster

Let's get into action and build a production-grade web application using JHipster. Before we start, we need a use case. We will be building an e-commerce web application that manages products, customers, and their orders and invoices. The web application will use a MySQL database for production and will have an Angular front end. The UI for the actual shopping website will be different from the back office features, which will only be available for employees who have an administrator role. For this exercise, we will only be building a simple UI for the client-facing part. We will talk about other option as we go through this chapter.

In this chapter, we will:

  • See how to create a monolithic web application using JHipster
  • Walk through important aspects of the generated code
  • See the security aspects of the generated application
  • See how to run the application and tests
  • See the generated frontend screens
  • See the tools included that will ease...
