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.

Continuous integration

Having automated testing ensures that we are creating bug-free code, and also ensures that there are no regressions introduced from new code. JHipster helps to an extent, by creating unit and integration tests for the generated code, but in real use cases, it won't be sufficient. We would have to add server-side unit tests for the business logic that we introduce and integration tests for new APIs we add. You will also have to add more unit tests for business logic handled on the client side and e2e tests, as JHipster only generates a few sample tests for you and doesn't know anything about your business logic.


The more tests you have, more confident you will be changing code, with fewer chances of regression.

Testing and continuous integration is an integral part of full-stack development and is an important aspect of DevOps. Testing should be considered as important as developing features to build a quality product. Continuous integration is nothing more than continuously...
